But I knew, she was inside!
She came from a wonderfully fun contest where we had to come up with a reason for an event. Mind you, my goal at the time was to cheer up the wonderfully creative NAPR Sheena– little did I know this would happen!
I won! I don’t win things! How exciting! You see my brother had tons of Legos. Tons. I was allowed to play and build and… Pretend all the boy Legos were girls. Not only were females uncommon but I wasn’t allowed to have any Legos. In fact, when my grandmother gifted my brother her old Legos, I felt a momentary twinge- yes I received a beautiful moment of my childhood too but… Old wounds I guess.
Suddenly here I was though, my chance to have my very own female Lego lady! NAPR was oh so nice in accommodating my secret wish- she’s fantastic. We’re going to school tomorrow 😀 how fun!
