Lions and Tigers and Dinosaurs...Oh My!

I love my son. This weekend while visiting a goat farm (this is Vermont you know) Little Man walked right up to the big momma goat and said “Hi dinosaur”, then casually strolled away. This cracked me up. Not only did the ugly goat-ette look an awful lot like a prehistoric creature, but the nonchalant-ness of the statement was priceless. Its as if Little Man lives in a world where seeing dinosaurs is a regular occurrence. Lately, he has been pretending a lot- something that I can watch him do for endless amounts of time. “Mommy”, he will say while pointing at his chest “I a tiger”.


“Oh no”, is my expected response, “A tiger! Don’t eat me”. Taking my statement seriously he will change creatures. “Mommy, I a baby”. At this point I must pick him up and rock him, as he says “goo goo, gaga” and squints his eyes. For some reason when LM is in pretend mode he has to have his eyes squinted. Just this last week he has been a tiger, a baby, his best friend, a bed, Elmo and now a goat. He even pretends to be a doll- which is my favorite because he just sits there…squinting, for a good length of time.

Maybe there are dinosaurs roaming around in his world. Maybe, in Toddler town squinting means that you can change into anything that you want. Maybe ill ask him if he wants to pretend to be potty trained…

Your son is awesome. I think he's pretty much the coolest kid ever, and I haven't even met him!
