'Round and 'Round and 'Round it Goes, Where it Stops Nobody Knows

When picking Griffin up from preschool yesterday...

"Griffin has the sharing bag today."

"Oh, great! What's the topic?"

"The instructions are in there, it's sharing something his whole family likes to do together."

"Oh. Um, you should be pre-warned. Griffin may bring legos."

"No, something the whole family likes to do together."

"Yeah, Griffin will probably want to bring legos."

"It's something The Whole Family Likes To Do Together."

"Yeah, Griffin may want to bring legos."

"Some. Thing. The. Whole. Family. Likes. To. Do. To. Get. Her."

"Yeah. Griffin will probably want to bring legos."

At our house it would be "Eliot will probably want to bring trains."

So did he take legos or what? Don't leave us hanging, woman!

he's taking pictures of us all gardening.

aaron was rather embarrassed with the lego idea.

kirsten said...

wait... some families DON'T play legos together???

what's that like?

lera said...

and the teacher thought it was odd or just didn't get it? legos are a family-building activity.

kristi said...

That teacher sounds a little dense. Or maybe she's one of those abusive parents who doesn't play Legos with her kids?

Tell Aaron to embrace his nerdiness, not be ashamed of it. Someday we will rule the world!

Cathy said...

I don't get it? Are there families that don't play leggos together? Weird! And funny!

Griffin plays with the lego, Darwin trips on it, Dad secretly wishes he could play with it, and mum cleans it up. It's something a family does together.

monica said...

c'mon what part of the word LEGO didn't she understand?

Is there something wrong to LEGO together?

I love LEGO, my children love LEGO, LEGO rocks!!

I think my son would bring Legos too. It is pretty much all he will play with us lately, we have to pry the legos from his fingers at night after he's gone to sleep. There are worse things to be obesessed with.

Kind of sad that his teacher is so slow to catch on...

Lego on, little family!

robiewankenobie said...

It's almost as though she's never met little boys before.

I make the BEST lego space-ports in the WHOLE UNIVERSE.

Even though Max will agree to do other things, his favorite thing in the whole world is for "family play time" to be all of us playing with his legos.

Are you kidding me? Isn't this why people have children...to play with Legos? Where has this woman been?

Doesn't it say on the box 2 to 100? The lady needs to give it a go as occupational therapy!
