Hubby took this picture of two of the things he has made. On the left is a race car and on the right is a crane. I wish he had gotten the crane from a different angle so you could see it's complexity. It came from a set that can make six different things and is designed for 6-12 year olds. He can put together all of the items and has even come up with a few on his own. He really wants to get the Lego Creator set for the rocket but it costs $60, so now he has to learn the lesson we all do of WAITING and SAVING!
As for the girls, I recently overheard them talking in their room:
J: Mommy and Daddy are twins because they go together!
A: No they're NOT! 'Cause Mommy is a girl and Daddy is a boy!
J: (in a deflated voice) Oh!
Yesterday, J held up A's half naked horseback Barbie doll that she got for Christmas and informs me, "Mommy, A's Barbies has 'breast-es' like you do!" GULP! (I was eating) Well, Barbie has gone through some changes including a 'breast-es' reduction and looks closer to normal, but still, I implored them to keep their Barbies clothed! LOL It is time for me to dig out my Barbie patterns and make some real clothes for them, not ones that look plastered to their body! Thankfully at this point they are more interested in Barbie's beautiful horse and combing its mane. Yesterday they were playing circus with Barbie's horses and their stuffed kitties. My what amazing tricks they can do! Gotta love childhood imagination! :o)
