For a long time, Tate was really not very interested in LEGOs. Those were Calvin's thing. So, I was surprised before Christmas when he began listing all kinds of LEGO sets on his gift "wishlist." Well, it did sort of backfire. He got several sets and pretty much had Cal build them. He had very little interest in sitting and following the intricate instructions to build the set and really wanted to just get to the point of playing with the results.
Still, give Tate 5 minutes and a pile of legos and you might just get Mario, no directions necessary.
Yes, he's just 6 and yes his mama does sort of think he's a bit of a genius. If not a genius of academics, one of creativity and resourcefulness. You want LEGO Mario and they don't make him anymore? Well, you make one yourself...... silly!
I mean, that mustache does kinda rock, doesn't it?
