Dinosaur Boy

Rerun has exactly two favorite books that he asks for each night.  He even keeps them in his crib with him.

The first one is a Cat in the Hat Learning book, Oh, Say Can You Say Di-no-saur?

His pronunciation of “dinosaur” now sounds like “dine-door.”

He loves, loves, LOVES dinosaurs.  I mean, he also loves Lightning McQueen and Mater, and Batman, but he kind of picked those up from his brother.  Dinosaurs, while Tad likes them, is something that Rerun learned to love without any help or encouragement.  Tad uses his two toy dinosaurs as decoration when he sets up his own Bat-Cave.  Rerun actually plays with them.

He will hand us this book every night, and say, “Dine-door?  Dine-door?  DINE-DOOR?”  He gets louder if we delay taking the book from him and reading it.

And once that book is done, there is his other favorite – Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs! by Sandra Boynton.

After all, who doesn’t love Sandra Boynton?  This book cleverly mixes dinosaurs and the concept of opposites – “Dinosaurs happy and dinosaurs sad.  Dinosaurs good and dinosaurs bad.”

I think Santa is planning on bringing him a couple of new dinosaur books to expand his library.  He sure does love them!

    I sure got a laugh when he used his toothbrush on one of Tad’s toy dinosaurs! Hmm… perhaps he has hit on the actual cause of the prehistoric creatures’ demise – poor dental hygiene and the ensuing periodontal disease.
