Because Every Blog Should Have Legos

I had originally intended for this post to be my own video montage of all the amazing Lego structures we saw in Lego Land earlier in the month but this is so much sweeter!  Just wait!

I saw a tweet some time ago from my friend Julie @TheMamaMash about this guy and his great Lego videos so of course being a mom of a Lego fiend myself, I was inclined to check it out.  What can I say?  I was hooked. Line and sinker.  I had to show my son who almost immediately had his YouTube channel on his favorites and soon Daddy's In Charge? became a household name over here.  No joke.  My kids both talk about and act like they know his boys and everything with the hula hoop comparison and all...(that was when my daughter got involved..)

John Willey is his name and Legos are his obsession - GAME I meant to say game.  But he's so much more than just Legos, he's a dad that doesn't babysit who writes about his joys and trials of being a stay at home dad with two boys. He is also taking YouTube, the interwebs and soon the world by storm via Legos. I really don't think he can help it. It's in his blood. He's one of a handful of dad bloggers that I follow and enjoy chatting with on a regular basis so when I asked him to guest post, he told me he would do a video for me. I was secretly hoping I would be in it but had no idea I would be the star!!  For someone that has never met me, I think he pretty much nailed it - what do you think?







My son's response when he saw it: "I love that Daddy's In Charge!"
I am forever immortalized in the eyes of my son and I have John to thank.
David is still beaming because his mom is a Lego!

You can find John on Twitter @DaddysinCharge
You Tube for his awesome videos: Daddy's In Charge
And he's often found on Facebook at Daddy's In Charge? there too!

Go check him out, you will be glad you did and you can thank me later!

Daddy's in Charge? said...

I'm glad you enjoyed it and I am honored that your son holds me in such high regard. The videos are fun to make and it gives me an excuse to play with Legos. I mean really, that's what it's all about.

I am glad that I am liked in someone's house. What can I say this gives me an excuse to play with Legos all the time and use my blog as the reason. I think Legos could either create world peace or cause WWIII. There is no happy medium.

HA! Love it. Princess Ahem (8) wants to know HOW MANY CUPS OF COFFEE THAT WAS!! I think she wants to compare your coffee intake with MY coffee intake. (life lessons in math? sure, we'll go with that!)

I love Legovision. Yes, everything goes better with Coffee and Legos (though that was a lot of coffee-hope there was a lego dishwasher)

CoffeeLovinMom said...

What would you do without this outlet? WWIII may happen at my house if I step on another one I swear! Thanks John - good fun! I will cherish this video forever and so will my son

CoffeeLovinMom said...

He knows me so well!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

My daughter is the same age - she now wants to make me coffee all the time so interest is good at least. We could have a coffee chugging contest and see who wins..

CoffeeLovinMom said...

All his videos are great, even the non-lego ones. I will have to ask about the dishwasher, I bet he has one, if not, he could surely build one!

I agree. Every blog should have legos. Maybe I'll get in on the fun soon ;-)
