Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Legos
Those are tweezers. I thought they'd do the trick, as I was more familiar with them.
Turns out, pliers really worked better.
I made up names for the ditties and parts I was unfamiliar with. I found myself asking for 'that guy over there,' the #1 of the 110210, the long flatty, the short squatty, 'the sheep,' and another Zacchaeus.
(He earned his name because I kept saying, with elbow grease and a screwdriver, "Oh, come on. You get down there." Hence, Zacchaeus.)
Everything I needed to know I learned from Legos.
The projects are remarkably similar; there is much to be said for pictorial directions.
"Mommy, I think Daddy will not mind if you use his hammer."
"You know, sugar, I think Daddy would be very proud that I am using his hammer."
