I think most parents do this at one point or another.

In other news, trebuchets are awesome.


Look at that trebuchet. Isn’t it awesome?

As soon as I learned what a trebuchet was as a child, I tried to make one using K’NEX and blocks. It didn’t work very well, but the dream still lives. One day, I hope that we’re able to build a real trebuchet and use it to fling pumpkins during Halloween.

In the meantime, I will keep playing with blocks. Because, like, my nocturnal toddler needs to learn how to use blocks, right? You only learn through example!
