Yo ho ho

Ok, I don't want to brag or anything but...look what I put together! (the little island jobbie on the right, I did not fashion the skull).

As I am not technically inclined or spatially gifted in the least (perhaps challenged may be an appropriate word here), this little guy was pieced together by studying step by step directions and counting Lego dots. Ben was so surprised at my "accomplishment" when he woke up in the morning that he exclaimed, "WOW MOMMY, I'm SOOO proud of you!" I blushed bashfully.
Unforch it came with some DVD that shows scary skeletons dragging pirates down into the water where they all become skeletons. Aaaand, now there are some bedtime issues. Yup, good pick.

Nice! I have a big ass box of lego pieces all mixed up. I still bring it out once in a blue moon and try to build something. So addicting!!!

Legos are HUGE in this house! Scary piratey skeletons, not so much.

If I could kill Legos I would. That shit is hard to put together! Yet, my 6 year old son can fly through it, so I guess I'm "challenged".

My two older sons (26 and 24) will NOT, repeat NOT allow me to get rid of all of the frggin' Legos they accumulated as kids. I've got news. First one to give me a Grandchild wins - all. the. Legos. maybe THAT will get them motivated.
