All About Dinosaurs:
There comes a time in every parent's life when the world starts revolving around dinosaurs. My time has come, my time is now.
For J now believes that dinosaurs are omnipresent and are responsible for every audible, visible and imaginary phenomenon under the sun.
He no longer roars like a lion; he roars like a dinosaur. We don't have monsters under our bed. We have, that's right, dinosaurs. There are dinosaurs in our garden, in our shed, in our street. They have taken over our home and our lives.
Unsurprisingly enough, dinosaurs feature heavily in our conversations too. A snippet of what has recently passed:
"There is a dinosaur outside the window, Aai!"
J: Dinosaur eat J.
Me: No, J. It will not eat you.
J: Dinosaur eat Aai?
Me: No, I don't think it will eat me.
J: Dinosaur eat Baba?
Me: No, J. I don't think it will eat Baba either.
A look of utter disappointment on J's face.
"Aai, put your legs up! Up! Dinosaur coming!" J telling me to lift my feet off the floor and prop them on the edge of the bed like he has done. Because, "Dinosaur coming! Dinosaur coming outside!"
"J go see dinosaur. In summer?" Maybe, if we can invent a time-machine in the next couple of months and travel back in time a few million years. Or at least get on the train to go see dino skeletons at the Natural History Museum.
