i'm just a little jealous...

I’m a big fan of lego building, and that was one of the things I was most excited about when I had the little dudes

you know, someone to build stuff with!!

so with the $50 in cash (birthday gift from nana and papa), ryan and jacks set off to toys r us, and returned an hour later with a big lego box and mere coins in his pocket. best part, ryan asked me to help him build his new house!

there’s a little backstory here, when I played with legos, I kept them in ziplock bags according to size and color. I tried to teach the boys this very handy technique hmm it didn’t stick. they have a lego lair of chaos in our basement. I can’t handle the bedlam of not knowing where all of the red pieces are, not to mention to tiny special pieces. so, I don’t play with them. I know it sounds “a bit” anal retentive, but I do enjoy shelving books for a living

anyway, when ryan asked me to play, I started to organize all of his pieces and parts.

he humored me, and thanked me for my help and even kinda agreed that it was handy. but all I could think about was looking for all of these bitty special pieces in the lego lair

so, back to the jealousy

check out the detail of this house!!
