Ode to the Evil that is Legos

A friend of mine on Facebook posted today about how legos are automatic mess makers and it just hit very close to home. I’ve been battling legos for a long time. Today it made its way out as a poem.

Each lego is a plastic curse.
They are under the bed and then in my purse.
They line the halls and obstruct the doors.
They gather in piles on multiple floors.
They hide in cracks and crevices
and then they grow legs like tortoises.
They make their way into every room.
They get caught in the vacuum and swept by the broom.
No matter what, they never stay put
and are especially evil when under your foot.

By me

  1. I take it you had a mishap with the Legos? Personally, I dont know what the kids did with most of theirs…I think they dumped them down the hole in the wall.

  2. If you prefer stepping in puddles to stepping on sharp lego pieces I do have a lego ice cube tray that you could borrow 🙂

  3. You’re a poet!

    I have boys and girls and refer to both Legos and Polly Pocket/Barbie accessories as “vacuumables”.

  4. We are just getting into the legos here. We’re still on the bigger ones until I can feel sure that Erin won’t try to eat one. I so look forward to getting to your stage… not! 🙂

  6. I search half the day in the sofa, under the bed
    Looking for the tiny gun or hair from the head
    Of some little tiny Lego guy.
    And meanwhile the Legos multiply.

  7. I see you have graduated from the large lego’s to the itty bitty ones. I have not allowed that to enter here yet.But it’s only a matter of time…….. 🙂

    LOVE it! Alaina liked it too!

  9. Believe it or not, some day all the Legos will be in a big plastic bin all put away in the garage. Your children will be all grown up, through college and married to the Christian spouses you are praying for now. You will miss their Lego season of life. Be in the moment joyfully with them now.

  10. My kids are nearly grown now and i can’t say I miss stepping on those little lego pieces in the dark in bare feet (Ouch!) but I must admit I can’t quite get rid of the stuff – it’s in boxes waiting for grandkids LOL
