A Mommy's Love, In 583 Pieces

Reese scored some major bucks from Grandparents & GreatGrandparents for his birthday, & he was beyond excited to go to the store and choose a gift!

So what did he pick?

A Star Wars Lego set, with only 583 pieces! One thing that I have the hardest time with is putting anything together using picture directions.

And Legos? All picture directions. Granted, they're designed for 7 year olds. But it takes me forever to put together something from a Lego kit.
Like a good Mommy, I open all the packs, sort through all the pieces, and start with Step 1.

I checked the clock before we began. It took me one solid hour to put together this beauty:

Reese's favorite thing to do with Legos? Break apart whatever I have built. Ugh. He promised he would keep it together for at least one day, which he did.
Now it's all in a big bag in 583 pieces again...waiting until Reese asks Mommy to build it again.
Which I will :)

That sounds just like Nicholas! I helped him build one of his first little Lego things. It took me a while to do it and within 10 minutes it was back in pieces. Reese will probably be like Nicholas though in that he will probably have more fun making his own creations out of all of those little pieces. What wonderful imagination builders Legos are!

I HATE legos. You are a way better mom than I am WAY better!
