So, recently in my house, we have become Lego obsessed. I have two boys who can't get enough of building (one is 4.5 and one is almost 45). I have become the designated picker upper/sorter of the Legos—half out of necessity of not cooking one into our dinner and half out of my need to save my feet from the pain of stepping on the bricks that have found their way to my floor. Anyone who has stepped on one of those things in the middle of the night knows what I am talking about here. After a weekend of Lego building and sorting, when my husband and I returned back to work, we found ourselves longing for more time with the Legos and comparing what we were doing at work to building with our son. Now, my husband works in computers so his comparisons were more naturally made. When I started thinking about what I do everyday, I found that I was able to make some really interesting analogies. Since I spend all my time in the pediatric world, I have often heard of managing pediatric patients by figuring out the “oral feeding puzzle”. But as I thought about it, I found that I feel the Lego analogy is a better fit and that it didn't just apply to pediatrics.
