Years ago, when I was pregnant with my first child, there was an email circulating, listing 10 reasons on how to tell if you’re ready to have kids. One of them was to throw broken glass all over the floor, and walk barefoot over the pieces. The experience was to prepare you for the pain you will encounter when you step on your kid’s legos. No amount of prep work can prepare you for that kind of pain.
My boys promise me that if I buy them plastic bins, they will sort each piece by color, and put them there every night.Â (Yeah, right.)Â Until then,
We spread them out on one big blanket. When they’re done, we just roll up the blanket and put them in a basket.
