When Gabriel wants my attention he knows that saying "Let's play with Legos!" is pretty much a guaranteed tactic for success.
Right now there is a Lego Fun Fest happening at the expo center next to our apartment complex... you can bet we'll be there Saturday!
At the same time, being a guilt-ridden person by default, I think of the plastic that is going to end up at the bottom of the ocean or in the gut of a fish or seabird. I realize that disposable plastic packaging and containers are a bigger issue than Legos... but I still think about this every time we chuck a broken plastic toy in the trash, too.
