J Speaks Dinosaurs

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.


  1. Bless I love it when their imaginatioon starts to shine through!

  2. how funny, its always amusing to see and listen to what little ones come up with

  3. Ah this is lovely, I can't wait until Baby starts to talk x

  4. Arrr, my littlest boy loves dinosaurs too and he loves shouting "Dinosaur, Roar" followed by what sometimes seems like an endles Rooooooaaaaaaarrrrr! It makes me giggle everytime :-) x

  5. hehe! We kind of missed out on dinosaurs with two girls, although youngest did have a short dinophase. Isn't there a dinosuar world somewhere. I know they have some at Paultons Park (Peppa Pig Land) which roar and stuff so reasonably realistic for a little one! #blogclub

  6. My son, 23-months, is really into dinosaurs and monsters and I find that I am now only buying clothes with those things as he doesn't like plain clothes. #blogclub

  7. Aww how sweet! I miss having little ones about!

  8. The train to the natural history museum sounds like a very good idea, my kids always love it there. Mich x #blogclub

  9. How lovely! It's so nice to hear these things. I can't wait till Nancy starts talking properly an sheer imagination kicks in. I hope you enjoy your summer dinosaur outing!

  10. Brilliant! Fran was pretending to be a baby dinosaur the other day, I think all children are fascinated by them!
