Last night our youngest brought in and showed me his latest Lego creation. It was pretty cool.
People sometimes bemoan being the youngest siblings. They get hand-me-down clothes, always a place at the "kid's table" when family gathers for dinner, but there is one way in which being the youngest sibling can be far more advantageous than being the first.
And it has to do with Legos.
Our Lego collection began humbly. We bought a couple of sets, but didn't go all out. After time, that little collection has grown. We now have so many Legos it could cover the floors of several homes to cause multiple outbursts of cursing from several parents as they cross those floors in the dark. Most of the sets we've acquired lately have been purchased by the kids themselves. For the parents, that's definitely a win-win!
My son explained to me all the amazing things his newest conglomeration was able to do. I thought about trying to explain it here, but I thought it would be best if he did it himself.
With an active imagination, sufficient Legos, and the skill of a Lego master, who knows what he'll come up with next?
