Somebody's Gotta Do It


"We're making progress here, Bob."

"We are?"

"We'll get these Legos all sorted out."

"Okay... So, Dad? If I was you, where would I put this blue one?"

  1. Oh, Lisa.

    If that couch was green, I'd swear this was my living room.

    The sound Lego makes when it's dumped en mass surely must be the same sound the gates of hell make when opening.

  9. I know this has to be done and my son and I did this years ago but something unexpected happened: he stopped playing with them as much. Well, I guess he was 14 by then. But still, I recommend an unsorted container too.

  11. Holy crap! I had 3 brothers and they only managed to accumulate about 25% of that. Even the nephews and nieces were completely satifisfied with the hand-me-downs.

  12. Ah, the spoils of battle.
    Well, somebody's got to tend to the wounded and carry the fallen off the field. At least you don't have to build a pyre in your living room to deal with lego carrion pieces.....

  13. We JUST did the same thing in our house last month. Went to Home Depot and bought organizee boxes in the tool section. And can I just say that sadly he has not played with them since. Huh.

  15. I'm just catching up with Bob's adventures, so I'm late posting, but looks to me like a lot of grey legos. This indicates to me that they are probably mostly Star Wars legos. Who would've guessed? :)

    haha. Nice Bob. It's fun to have a kiddo in the house. There is someone who will mess out, and will also help you fix the mess, he will also be funny, but eventually you (his parent) will be the one to fix the mess he made.haha. Love this post.

    Cheers,
