It’s been a funny couple of weeks. I’ve been off work since the weekend before Christmas, and everyday since then has felt like a Sunday. The week between Christmas and new year is particularly strange, a bit like ground hog day, with Boxing Day repeating itself over and over. I’m never quite sure if it’s accaptable to still be in Christmas mode for that whole week, I had a drink almost every night which I would never do, and spent most of the week in my pjs! Definitely a strange week, but a great week all the same. It’s not often you get two whole weeks off!
Anyway, my word of the week this week has to be…
I don’t think a day has passed in the house since Christmas Day when Lego has not been built. There is Lego everywhere!
I was never really in to Lego as a child, too fiddly and time consuming for me. It even frustrates me a little now! I can see the benefits of Lego, Neil’s occupational therapist has recommended it for his fine motor skills and concentration, and I can see that it does help.
Neil got about 5 or 6 sets of Minecraft Lego for Christmas, and Caitlin got 3 or 4 sets of Barbie mega blocks and some light up Lego stuff, all of which required building, obviously! We have had some mega building sessions this week. My husband in particular, as he has. Even helping Neil with his Minecraft lego and they are huge!
The finished sets are amazing!
I’m pleased to say I haven’t yet had a ‘standing on a Lego brick’ incident yet but I’m sure it’s not far off because the stuff is everywhere, I’m not sure where it’s all going to fit!
I’ll leave you with this little time lapse video on my wee mans YouTube channel of his daddy building one of the Minecraft sets.
