Leggo My Lego

We have small children. Therefore we have Legos. I suck at Legos. Seriously, suck at building things from Legos. I can manage a tower of straight up blocks, but creating an airplane, a fish, or anything else....just doesn't happen for me. My dearest husband adores Legos and makes the halfings all sorts of fun things. I was just asked to help build an airplane to complement the one that dad built the other night. Um, what? A mild sweat breaks out as I figure out how to get out of this. Thankfully, she changes her mind and I am saved. Saying "I can't" is not an option, I must be more thoughtful than that.

Do you have anything like this that your kids want you to play with and you just can't stand doing?

It drives me nuts when the kids want me to help them assemble their long Thomas track throughout the living room, with turns & bridges, and then 5-10 mins. later, they're tearing it all apart. Grrrr!

C has these things called "K'nex", which is like a mix between Legos and an Erector set. Tiny pieces, can't quite figure out how they all go together. I think they suck.

I LOVE Magnetix, though!
