Lego facilitates imagination

Emmet and Rex visited for brunch!

Lego facilitates imagination in all kinds of ways. The possibilities are endless and who knows what will be created next.

My 5 year old, Owen, decided brunch was on the creative menu and of course Emmet and Rex (his current favourite Lego figures) joined in the fun. (The raptors must have had a prior engagement😂). I love the coffee machine behind Owen and Carson, hopefully it makes tea too 😂

Happy page turning and creating x

What did you believe before breakfast?

Since childhood Alice in Wonderland (by Lewis Carroll) has continued to top my list of favourites. I love the whimsical world of imagination. A place where perspectives are turned upside-down to reveal any possibility. I also really love the tea party. (Tea has also topped my list of favourites since childhood – I always wondered why waiters would smile so much when I ordered a pot of tea instead of a soda).

Childhood is a magnificent time, where imagination drives reality, anything really is possible. I love listening to Owen’s (age 4) stories and being apart of his imaginary play. I think to myself but trains don’t fly and I don’t think your teacher was eaten by a dinosaur (this was Owen’s response when I wondered why his teacher had left). I of course play along with his imaginary play and bask in it. How wonderful to believe that anything is possible.

I am not the first to ask the question: when do we stop believing in the impossible? I assume is very subjective and different for everyone.

“Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

Sometimes we forget to believe not just what is possible but what is impossible. I have added this quote to our ‘sticky note wall of wisdom‘. A reminder to believe in the impossible.
