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.
