Science

Me: Is it a Brontosaurus?
Hank: Nooo.
Me: Is it a Stegosaurus?
Hank: No!
Me: Is it a Diplodocus?
Hank: No, Mooom! It’s a T-Rex!
Me: How do you know?
Hank: Because those other dinosaurs you named are herbivores.

    Aw a little dinosaur geek. I’m working on turning my three girls into the biggest geeks I can (thank you Doctor Who). It will be my way to tamp down the dating in their teenage years ;)

    Yes I too have a 3.5 year old dinosaur scientist (if not a volcano or spaceship scientist – decision pending) and have taken to googling secretly on the side to find out which ones he is talking about. A good trick from the local toy shop owner is to use the Schlerich guide book as a way to identify the names (http://www.schleich-s.com/toys/prehistoric_animals/) love those dinosaurs!

    Especially impressive because I think Brontosaurus and Diplodocus got renamed a while back….?
