Public Enemy Number One

I love Legos. And I'm glad my kids do too.

They promote creativity and critical thinking skills and the boys, who usually fight like cats and dogs, get along surprisingly well when they're working together to build a city, rocket ship or some other Lego creation.

But let me tell you, when you're making your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night and you step on one of these

They become public enemy number one.

Stepping on one of these little land mines can produce howls that will wake up the entire neighborhood.

If I didn't love them so much I'd chunk every one we own into the Bay.

Too bad Nerf doesn't make them - stepping on a Nerf Lego wouldn't be nearly as bad.
