So I was playing Lego Duplo with the little one the other day and I made her a twin-jet, medium bomber, as you do.


She was very happy with it, and was playing “flying” with it, and then she picked up a discarded piece of assembly from a previous build, and announced that she was going to add it to the plane.


Now nonsensical as this was, I’m always very concerned to not ever make her feel stupid, so I said something like, “Oh that’s a really good idea!” as she did it. And then I looked at what she’d done. And I realised.


She’d only gone and built the bloody AWACS version! How clever is that?
