Lil Reuben is off school for the summer holidays, so we kicked off our week with a trip to Cardiff so we could hit the Lego store! Lil Reuben didn’t want to go her school prom so I said she could spend the money I would have spent on prom on Lego instead, to reward her for all her hard work. The 3 smaller Lego sets at the front of the picture were free!
The Lego store was my weekly smile, until we got home and played with the sets together, then my weekly smile changed to playing with my daughter and making the most of it. I love when my daughter is off school, we have so much fun together, it makes me wish she didn’t have to go to school so much (Despite the fact that I LOVE education). They are children for such a small amount of time, and I’ve always been very aware of that, so I love making the most of her childhood and Lego is one of the things we love to play with together. I actually think I enjoy Lego more now than I did when I was a kid. Lil Reuben makes everything more fun.
In life, we are forced to keep looking to the next step. Sometimes it’s nice to just forget all about that and enjoy the moment, and that’s exactly what we do when we play together. It always makes me smile, and always makes me happy.
So buying new Lego, and playing with it together with my daughter, made me smile a lot this week.
