My Paleontologist

Yes, paleontologist...I only knew this word few weeks ago. All because of my eldest son who suddenly is a freak dinosaurs fan. Everything down to our daily conversations are on the topics of dinosaurs.

'Mama, do you know what is Cretaceous Period?'

'Mama, see, Diplodocus. See this one, a triceratops. And this one ......'

My brain can only accommodate a few names like Tyrannosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Triceratops, Protoceratops, Stegosaurus (as I am typing this, I am checking the spelling from my son's book, ;)). So the rest, it sounded like an alien trying to squeeze in new words in my tiny brain. But to my son, all these names are fantastic and he can already easily memorizing 30 if not more...goodness.

The other day, I was amazed at his ability to spell Ankylosaurus. So I asked him, do you know how to spell mama's name?

He looked at me and tap his chin....'How mama? How to spell your name??'

Yeah, this paleontologist of mine loves his dinosaur BETTER than his mom already...aiyoyo!!

LOL You'd better brush up on your spelling and pre-historics, mom!
