Dinosaurs and Teddy Bears; Plus, It Starts Early.

18 Oct

It’s been a while since I posted any stories about things the preschoolers have done/said! Well, that changes TODAY (mostly because today I a) have some stories to tell and b) can remember them):

We were reading How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, and were on the last page where there’s a picture of a dinosaur snuggling with his teddy bear in bed.

This picture has nothing to do with anything. But there's a dinosaur!

Me: “what does he have?”

Kids: “a teddy bear!”

One particular girl: “I was in the jungle when I was little.”

Me: (usual response) “Oh?”

Girl: “And then I didn’t want my teddy bear any more so I gave it to a dinosaur.”

Seems like a good solution. Lucky dinosaur.

Yesterday, this little vignette took place, which cracked me up for a few moments. I had to put my face behind the book to regain my composure:

The scene: little boy, wearing an orange baseball cap, is sitting in front of another little boy. The boy in the back surreptitiously reaches around and pokes the bill of the orange hat, just enough to make it move. Boy wearing the hat feels this, but does not know who does it. Boy in baseball cap looks around at the boy behind, who, looking innocent, immediately points at the girl next to him.

It starts early.
