Memories with Legos


   Memories with Legos 

I decided yesterday, instead of doing anything else, I was going to sit in the playroom as my two boys played with their Legos. Their imaginations soar when they are in “Lego world”. I watched them build, imagine, and laugh.

 I began to wonder if these are the times they will remember most when they grow up and have children of their own. When we all gather together at Thanksgiving, are they going to be elbowing each other and laughing about the football mini-figure who tripped on a brick running up the mountain?(Apparently this was very funny.) Or are they going to remember fighting over the tiny brown hair they each needed to complete a character they were making? As their children come into the kitchen to help me make a pumpkin pie, are my boys going be searching the closets of their old rooms to find their Legos to relive this day.

I am so glad I stayed in there and watched a memory in the making. 

I am going to join the The UnWired Mom 14 Day Challenge so I will be sure not to miss great moments like these.
