Growing Up

So many  of the phases of growing up haven’t really bothered me.

However……Jordan has spent the past 10+ years collecting Legos – all different kinds/sets.  If you know anything about Legos you know 2 things – they aren’t cheap and they  take up a lot of space (especially the sets)!!!

I didn’t think this day would ever happen and quite honestly, I’m not sure I wanted it to come.  I like the Legos and the fun associated with them.

But, I told Jordan it was his choice.  So, he organized.  We took pictures –

Plus about 300 more – not even lying!!!

We posted each picture with a description and price on Selling with Friends (a local FaceBook group).  

And, then we spent hours sorting because the response was incredible.  

Now we have piles all over our living room and dining room – some have already been picked up and paid for and others will be in the next day or two.

12 hours of work (just for Tuesday!) on this project so far and the entire time I  kept remembering how excited Jordan was when he received each and every one of those!JordanSee the Lego pile?!

Many were gifts but there were also a lot that Jordan used his own money to buy!!!

Not sure why this part of seeing my little boy growing up bugs me but……

Over the years, we have sold lots of their things as they’ve outgrown and moved on.  But Legos have been a huge part of Jordan’s life for over 10 years!!!

And, now they aren’t.

I know it’s all good but this particular part of growing up has been rough for me!  I guess it’s like Jordan said – “I have all my memories of my Legos.  I don’t need to keep them for that.”

OK – I will go with the memories, too!!

Happy Wednesday!
