    My soon-to-be DD calls me yesterday to tell me that her son, my new GS, won't build anything with his new giant lego blocks but "chicken houses".
    Last week I got the blame because he was walking around with a stuffed cow lifting its tail and sticking it in people's faces. He makes the cutest pootin' noises when he does this.
    Okay so I may have shown the kid one too many youtube videos of a T-rex pootin', but I fail to see how the lego block problem is my fault.
    I was just bonding with him. [​IMG]

    You are the grandma - you can feed them too much sugar, give them coffee, feed them pizza for breakfast, teach them how to burp and fart and buy them kittens. Then give them back [​IMG]

    Why is building chicken houses out of Lego blocks a problem? Frankly if I had enough blocks, I would be delighted for my seven year old to build me a REAL lego block chicken house. [​IMG]

    Edit: I think I would be more offended by a farting cow in my face than a lego chicken house.
