When my son was barely a toddler we had picked up heaps of bags of Lego from a garage sale for a few dollars. My ex had been right to buy it then. I had thought it was too early but Lego was probably their main toy,
My youngsters have a Danish Great Great Grandmother. She was born in 1870. The family ran market gardens in Australia.
I have told them to be proud of their Danish ancestry, The Danes managed to save 95 percent of their Jewish population from The Nazis.
The Danes have a very popular monarchy too which includes an Australian princess.
Lego is a Danish company. The bravery of the Danes allowed them to save virtually all their Jewish people from The Nazis in WW2.
I love that Princess Mary met her future husband in the Slip Ìnn in Sydney. It actually looks like a bit of a dive not the sort of place you would generally expect to see black American Express cards.
Another of my favourite Danish Inventions is the Danish pastry.
Hygge was a real lifesaver for us when we were recovering from what we had experienced! It fits with the fact that I am a huge fan of essential oils!
More Things Lego
I had used to love Lego as a child too. When we were in the UK, we had visited Legoland, Windsor while there was still snow on the ground and it was minus 1 degrees Fahrenheit from memory.
We looked into buying shares in Lego, the children and I. I was trying to teach them to be on a more equitable footing with their father, so they could hold their own a little when it came to finances.
I am willing to bet that there aren’t too many parents who have not experienced the agony of standing barefoot on a Lego brick. I think they should make you do this at all parenting classes!
REMEMBER BEING ABLE TO WALK ACROSS A ROOM FULL OF LEGO BAREFOOT IN THE DARK IS A PREREQUISITE FOR ALL PARENTS!
