Our Lego’s Are In Time Out

I hit my breaking point on Sunday and rounded up every single Lego in the house. They are now all in their storage container and a basket in the guest room closet.

Why I Put Our Legos In Timeout

I have a serious love/hate relationship with Legos!!


They keep Noah so engaged and quiet!!!

They are also helping Bryce with his fine motor skills!!

Oh, the cons. Bryce is too young for legos. He takes them apart constantly. He is always asking, badgering, and bugging the living crap out of me to take them apart. The majority of our Legos figures are missing their hands. We are 50% sure that some of them may be touring Bryce’s intestinal system as I type this.

The Lego figures are super expensive and they are constantly fighting over them. We started out with only one batman and spiderman. That lasted for about a day. We got an additional batman and spiderman. Then Bryce took them apart and we temporarily lost pieces so there were still fights! Oh my gosh the whining and fighting over these toys!!!

Then we got them this movie for Valentines day and it came with only one mutant Batman minifigure. I quickly pulled the case off the movie hiding the mutant batman and showed the boys the movie. Eric looked at me quizically and I vehemently shook my head and gave him the wide eyed evil glare.

Within an hour they had lost one of their batmans and were fighting over the other and Eric, bless his heart, pulled out mutant batman to settle the fight. Wrong!!! Then they were fighting over the mutant batman.

No more I tell you!!!

Well at least not for this week. It is day 3 of the Lego timeout and I couldn’t be happier. Noah continues to ask for them, but he is accepting it all pretty well.

I leave Friday for the Princess run and told Eric that he could bring them out after I’m gone if he wants too. We’ll see if they go back up when I get back!!

Do your kids love Legos? Do you hate them too??
