Like any mom I love Lego. It keeps the kids really busy and allows us to get the important things done, like reading with a glass of wine or watching House of Cards. In fact, just this weekend I gave the girls the Lego sets that Netflix sent to us (because I'm fortunate enough to be on their #StreamTeam of writers) and they played with those sets for the whole afternoon. We may have even skipped a meal, but I wasn't complaining because I think I fit in two episodes of Supernatural and had an uninterrupted shower before they even looked up! I'm sure it's great for their fine motor development and creativity, too, but that's beside the point.
Lego Friends and Lego Bionicle have made my March. Netflix launched these two new shows just as my bank account decided it would refuse to purchase any more Lego (that stuff is pricey!). The kids can now get their fix for FREE! And I can spend all the money I will save on the good wine, the wine that comes in a bottle. Sure, they love building still, but watching their favourite little characters go on adventures is filling the Lego void and if I'm quiet enough I can sneak in a chapter/episode/glass or two before they even notice I've left the room.
Seriously, tell your friends. Lego is your quickest way to a break you very much deserve!
A mom like you.
