    Default Oh for the love of Lego...

    Confession time - I really do not enjoy making Lego. Nor do I like playing computer games, building blocks, playing with train tracks & cars or roaring trucks around. I just don't like it!!!!

    What I do like is peace and quiet, reading a book, sleeping & drinking wine - how about we do one of those things kiddos??

    Haha, it's true for me too. Except swap the trains and trucks for princesses and fairies and you've got it. I hate fairies they give me the heebee jeebies. When I had girls they were going to play with different things... yeah right hahaha.

    I've been playing kids card games (snap, go fish) lately, that's not too bad....

    At the moment DD1 is 'writing' a book and DD2 is playing with my little ponies on her bedroom rug, so I'm off the hook for now.

    I will happily build lego, play video games or watch some kids tv.

    I do not like playing outside in summer- too hot, winter- too cold, spring- hayfever. I'm down with autumn though. I do not like doing the same thing day after day with no variety either!

    I don't mind Lego/duplo but don't like pretend play (kitchens, pretending to be animals) or chasing around the house (I'm lazy). I would prefer to take them for a walk/scoot/ride to the park or beach or somewhere else fun where they are easily amused!

    I'm just one of those Mums who hate playing anything, of any description, with her children

    I do it because I have to, y'know, be engaging with my children. But I still hate it

    I generally hate playing with the kids but I LOVE lego. When im watching tv or movies after the boys are in bed I get the lego and build. They love waking up to new creations..... Then DS1 gets really angry at DS2 for breaking what I made hahaha

    I do really try to play with DS but it is so frustrating. His attention span is that of a goldfish.

    What's with all the Lego love?? Even my DS1 gets over it and asks me to keep working on it after he's gone to bed ... Which I never do!! My back gets so achy!!! Lol

    Maybe it's because I never had Lego growing up??
