This Man Perfectly Depicts What Parenting Is Like Using Only Legos

Parenting is full of highs and lows.

Some days you're posting adorable photos of your kids all snuggled up and being sweet, and other days you're wiping applesauce out of your eyes and wondering what would happen if you just locked yourself in the closet for a while and let them duke it out themselves.

Now there's an Instagram account that perfectly embodies all of the funny, frustrating, and heartwarming moments that parenting has to offer. It's called Lego Dad and, as the name suggests, its creator uses Legos to re-enact the situations that virtually all parents find themselves in.

For example:

My son turns into a monster when he wants a snack. A Jedi I am not. #lego #legodad #wampa #starwars #jedi #kids #snacks
