I've been doing my mom-ly duty by allowing the blocks to come out. I kinda despise them. Nate likes to build stuff but when he starts, I have to hold the blocks. And then he puts 4 piece long ones on top of singles. Then he looks at me and bitches and whines when the thing falls over. What can I do? What? Put them on the floor? Not unless I want to get an ear full.
In all seriousness, it's great that he's building and creating. And it's super-fantastic that he finds great delight in knocking them over and throwing them all over the living room. That makes it difficult to actually get all the blocks back into the bag (which I do mostly myself) on the first try. Don't ya hate when you put the bag away and then find strays?
Creating a masterpiece
So tall he had to stand on the couch to put the top blocks on.
And now he's moved on to more coloring.
