I am Meredith: Mother of Cameron & Morgan, Creature Who Carries Purse and She Who Sings Orders…you can imagine that Frozen’s Let It Go has not escaped my house. Rather, it moved in, does not pay rent and does not appear to be leaving. However, these three words have resurfaced and this time, I am the vocalist. Below are a series of pictures from the South Second Street Lego Saga.
Picture 1: My OCD attempt to make order. All legos were separated by color and placed into drawers. Big, ugly, plastic organizer was stored in the closet.
Picture 2: Inevitably, the legos ended up like this and one of my baking sheets was consumed by the closet (I did not bake for 13 months).
Picture 3: One of the many creations that were hiding in the closet. First clue I needed to stop suffocating their creativity by keeping it closet-bound and provide an accessible, convenient building environment.
Picture 4: Fifteen minutes after relocation and drawer dumping. Surprisingly, the mixing of colored blocks was very satisfying visually and audibly to this left-brainer.
Picture 5: My favorite. This is where I found them the next morning and have since been playing here for hours. Note: check out my youngest, rockin’ the bed head.
Simply put: Let It Go, Mom.
