Now this is more along the lines of what I was expecting: Lego guys. J has a tackle box full of Lego guys, and he wanted to spend the time just fiddling through them. I need playtime coaching when it comes to Lego’s. Dad’s middle name is Lego, but I never gave a second thought to them until they were underfoot (literally). I told him up front that he’d need to show me how to play. In short, it is all about building a new guy. Lego may make a lot of Star Wars characters, but J makes more. What you do with the guy…meh, unimportant.
We got a late start again because we took the kiddos to an art show. So while it is unrelated to Operation Play, I was so proud of J’s insightful observations and questions about each painting. He is very perceptive. It was a great reason for a late play time and a late bedtime.
Day 5 stats: Lego guys, 20 minutes, girls asleep, late start, art detour.
