Oh my, this is an obsession. Worse than birds nests or the color yellow. Way worse. Because its television. Clara loves Dinosaur Train more than any other TV show. And boy is that website I just linked cool. I don’t think I should show it to her or I may never hear the end of it. But at least Clara can tell you all about various dinosaur species, what an herbivore and carnivore are, and has decided that our family is called “Team Pteranodon.” Its educational, right? And its only half an hour a day.
But, I decided that pretending dinosaur train on our own can’t hurt anything. Its good imagination and storytelling practice. So, I got out our Ikea train and all of the little dinosaurs that Nancy bought for Clara as a big sister present and we started pretending. Who says that TV stunts your imagination?
