Eons ago, Aunt Kate presented Vivi with a book entitled "Ooga Booga Dinosaurs." It's a very cute little book, and, being dino-based, is very popular in our home. However, a recent reading DID raise some concerns about the...um...very factual nature of Vivi's dino knowledge.
In the book, Bert and Ernie race around with a baby dino, trying to "save" it from the big dino who is chasing them. In a rather unoriginal plot twist, the big dino turns out to be the baby dino's mommy. In the picture below, they are "safe" up on a tall rock, but the Mommy Dino is very upset.
Vivi pointed out, "Look, the Mommy Dino is crying"
Thinking we would have a sweet little mother-daughter moment, I answered, "Yes, she is. Do you think it is because she misses her baby?"
Vivi looked at me, and a very solemn voice answered, "No. It's because she wants some meat."
