Look who got her first Lego set!
And look who got his first set in months! (that’s a long time, equal to forever in waiting for the next Lego set to build). He was just a LITTLE EXCITED about this.
It’s just a shame he is so inexpressive in front of the camera, isn’t it?
Max earned the Lego set from earning one hundred thirty Good Job Tickets (which are very un-fancy rectangular scraps of blue construction paper that we use to reward good behavior and hard work in school). We offered a scale of prizes he could’ve earned for less tickets along the way, but he always traded in his tickets for the big ol’ prize of a $22 Lego set. You should’ve seen the pride on his face after he counted 130 blue rectangles before cashing them in.
It took a long, long time for him to earn this prize.
So when he tried to convince me that Mini should get a Lego set too – just because – I caved. I thought that was pretty sweet.
