My child, the dino geek.

Recently, Girl Terror has been thinking up "funny" stories or events that could happen. She's forever saying things like "Mummy, what would happen if....." and then coming up with a scenario that to her is so out to lunch it is hilarious. Like the cat wearing clothes. Or toes talking. You know, typical 3 year old humor.
On the way into town last week, she came up with her favourite one so far. "Mummy, what would happen if an Apatasaurus ate another dinosaur? Wouldn't that be silly." I didn't get the joke. I looked at her blankly. Finally she explained it to me, her uneducated mother, "They don't eat other dinosaurs! They are plant eaters, not meat eaters! Silly apatasaurus!"
My husband did this. He turned my baby into a geek. She's going to be the Ross Geller of her class at school, and she's never going to be asked to the prom.

Fifteen more years, kid, and you can be on Letterman.

Oh She will get asked to the prom, most likely by my son. :) He is huge into dinosaurs and they would have much to talk about. However, North Carolina and the Yukon are a bit far away.

Does she like to spell? My little 4 yr old nerd LOVES to spell. If so that may just seal the deal.

Nu-uh. She'll be the girl the guys are comfortable with, the one they like to hang out with. This does not mean she'll be "just another guy": my eldest is just like this, and she has never lacked for dates!

Hi Tammy thanks for stopping by. I definitely do not know too many who are in the Yukon. I mean bloggers lol. It was funny I just finished posting and then I saw you had left a comment.

Don't fret. She'll go to the prom -- with a fossilized troglodyte skull and shovel -- but she'll be there!
