I didn’t realise he had bought his latest Lego creation with him. If I had, I most likely would have told him to leave it at home. Our mission this particular morning, was to collect pine cones for a few projects I had planned. I love doing this sort of thing with my kids; 10 minutes immersed in nature is wonderfully grounding. I watched him race off to collect fallen cones with his helicopter. Seeing how engaged he was in the joy of it all made me glad. Glad I didn’t realise he brought his latest Lego creation with him this day. I’m glad, because I didn’t have the opportunity to say no.
