This morning as Kevin is running out the door to work and Drew has just finished his breakfast…
“Mom, can I play Legos now?”
“Yes, you can.”
“Okay, I know how to get them,” and he heads off to the cupboard and starts to bring the Lego bucket out. While carrying them over to the counter he says, “These Legos are heavy Mom, I don’t know if I can carry them.”
“I know you can, you’re a strong boy, and you can do it!”
Just then, CRASH, BANG, BOOM…the sound of a million Legos hitting the floor. Kev looks at me, smiles and says, “I gotta go to work, have a nice day babe,” and he quickly escapes out the front door while I’m chuckling at what has just happened. While he’s walking down the front walk he mimicked me, “You’re a strong boy, you can do it!” while laughing gleefully that he didn’t have to help clean up….
I’m thinking to myself, “that’s okay…you go win some bread so I can buy a vacuum with enough suction to suck all these suckers up.” 😉
