Nerdy Dad Shirt‘s Guide To Living with a Lego Master (and his proclivity for losing a piece).
NOW THAT I’VE EARNED $15 at the LEGO store for spending $300 there in the last two and a half years ($5 used to get you nothing, now it gets you a LEGO Mixel, or a new keychain for two bucks extra), I’ve learned a little something. For starters, I wish I earned LEGO points for ordering online, because then I’d be in business for extra stuff (as would every member of my family and my circle of dads and moms also buying LEGOs for every birthday party ever). I also have surrendered to the fact that I will never not be able to get LEGOs for my children (until my son applies to MIT and then he’s on his own for purchasing). My daughter is also a great builder, but not as committed to strictly LEGOs at the age of four. She does mix it in with dress-up time, though.
My small box of LEGOs from my 80s childhood is nothing in comparison to my son’s collection, which keeps multiplying after dark.
Here’s a pictorial list for keeping sane.
