Pleasingly, Jessica is developing quite a fondness for LEGO. This makes me very happy, because I remember enjoying LEGO tremendously as a child.

Sadly, this also fills me with deep angst and regret – because of course true LEGO is very, very expensive.

Thankfully, I should be able to convince my wallet that this is a great investment… :)

(PS – all that LEGO surrounding her comes straight out of her daddy’s childhood. Turns out Mom was hoarding all of the LEGO we used to enjoy as youngsters! What a great holiday find!)
