One Good Thing About Dinosaurs.

They make your kids want to eat eggs.

Are you scratching your head yet?

OK, Gabe has had an absolute obsession with The Land Before Time lately. In fact, he insists on being called Littlefoot, walks around on his hands and knees and begs food like a dog which I guess he really thinks is what a dinosaur does. I suppose that's because in the movies Littlefoot is frequently being fed "tree stars" by his grandparents who accepts them in a very dog-like fashion. Recently, we borrowed the second in the series which introduces a pair of maniacal egg stealing dinosaurs. They like to eat eggs. They don't want to eat anything except eggs. Gabe has suddenly taken to asking for eggs for his meals. Thank God and little cartoon struthiomimuses my son will eat something besides peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! Hmm, do you suppose if I let him watch The Flintstones I could get him to eat ribs?

Here you go, Gabe. Enjoy!

A few years ago my son would eat nothing but hot dogs! But now he is willing to try other things. Your children are beautiful! I will be praying for you and your family as your Husband is away.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. My prayers for your family as Rob serves our country. Thanks to all of you for that. Your kids are totally adorable. I wish I could use the dinosaur trick on The Manimal, but he's not a fan. Most recently, he said "I no like dinosaurs, dey're 'cary. I like ants. Dey're not 'cary. I sep on dem."

And now you've convinced me to run out and buy the Land Before Time movie tomorrow! I'd love it if my 3 year old would eat eggs! lol
