It Really Does Not Pay To Whine

It's great to see daddy playing with the little ones. It seems dads have less time with them being away working, so these are grateful times.

He is very good with the details and I love how he allowed his son to read and help with the instructions as they went along.

Then it was finished and ready to be torn apart shared with each other.


Of course the boy started to whine about all manner of things and not showing much responsibility with the pieces so I boxed it all up and told him he'd get it at a later date when he was more mature to handle such a toy.

I think he got it back. I can't really remember now. But it's kept upstairs where they play sometimes.

Of course legos aren't my friends but, my kids love them and they provide all sorts of stimulation and ideas.

  6. Wow, Legos have gotten so much cooler and more intricate than they were when I was a kid! Dads are great for stuff like that.

  8. I always loved to see dad play with the kids too, and I especially loved when he told them stories that he made up. He was SUCH a great storyteller!
