DJ Naming the Dinosaurs

I’m a little overloaded this week with speech writing for MOPS next week, and working on the dreaded tax return, but I wanted to share this little video I took of DJ rattling off the names of all the dinosaurs in his favorite book.

My favorite part is when he argues with me over what the book says, even though he can’t read! I think he has a promising future in debate. His counterpoint of choice will simply be, “No, it doesn’t.”

Heather is a minimalist in love with a recovering packrat. 7 years ago, she and her husband sold pretty much anything that wasn't nailed down in order to pay off their mortgage, and they've been living happily debt-free ever since. They have 3 hilarious little kids who were conceived with the help of in vitro fertilization, and they haven't had a good night's sleep in the last decade. Heather is an anglophile who loves all things British, and spends her free time looking at real estate listings in Cornwall. Every day, she and her family work toward a simpler, more meaningful life. Some days are awesome, some are disastrous, and you can read about all of them here.

    Wow, he’s so smart, I can’t believe he remembered all those big names!

    Wow, he is wonderful. I do not think I could pronounce the names of those dinosaurs. He is just amazing. It really shows that SOMEONE spends a lot of time with him to help him learn. He has an amazing family.

    That is so cute. My son loved doing the same thing with all his dinosaur books. His favourite was the Quetzalcoatlus. The more complicated the name, the better!

    After, “No, it doesn’t”, I chuckled over that one for a while. It was great how you said, “Okay”, and moved on. Choose those battles :)

    *Missing you on my regular blog-hopping-trail. :( *Hope to see you back soon– and hope Spring is beginning to awaken in your area, too (the cherry blossoms [that's what I've always called them anyway...] are covering lots of trees here in Alabama..)! :)
