Confession- I am a closet geek on her way to becoming a full blown geekmom.
I put my geek to bed a long time ago because I needed to become a grown-up. You know, the people who read newspapers while drinking coffee.
I traded the 20 hours a day I spent playing my favorite MMORPG for college antics like frat parties and rushing. Which is funny because I could have done both had I hung around the Phi Gamma Delta boys more. I mean, I only went to the nerdiest college in town. Helloooo, Kettering University!
Geek gēk/ (noun informal)- a knowledgeable and obsessive enthusiast.
I find my life shifting back to the dark side. I get twitchy when I think about how long it has been since my last game fix. Heck, I even scheduled Star Trek versus Star Wars marathons so I, the unbiased middle man, can decide which series is better. Who would’ve guessed that my deepest secret would be drawn out by a simple shopping trip consisting of a Spiderman shirt and Justice League shoes?
I’m creeping my way back into the geekmom awesomeness that only my sister can truly appreciate… and I dig it.
Before I talk about one of the coolest events for LEGO® lovers everywhere, I need you to know these pictures are from our first visit to LEGO® KidsFest… almost 2 years ago. No judgy, mmmkay?
LEGO® KidsFest is a geekmom’s dream come true. It is SO much fun. I was just about to buy our tickets for the Saturday session when… BAM! this opportunity landed in my inbox. Wham, bam, thank you, ma’am! ‘
How do I even begin to explain how excited our household gets when this event comes around?
I can’t so you should just go.
