Last Wednesday we went to the Children's museum. They have a new Robot exhibit.. but my kids weren't too interested in that.
For Christmas the kids got two Land Before Time movies from their Aunt Casey... and well, have been kinda attached to anything dino like since! So it was no surprise that they spotted all the dino stuff in the Gift shop, right away! William was so excited when he found an Egg... Just like in one of the movies... Were a Sharp Tooth is hatched from.
He held it up to me and told me he wanted a Sharp Tooth. I told him he was crazy and that it would bite his head off.. He just laughed at me. ;)
It was a surprise egg though.. It could be one of 4 different types of Dinosaurs; a Sharp Tooth, a Swimmer, a Spike tail, or a Long Neck.
I thought what the heck it will be fun hatching it. So we spent the 5 bucks and headed home.
All the way home he was talking about his Sharp Tooth...and would get so upset if you even mentioned it could be something else.. Like a Swimmer maybe... He would throw his hands up and so "oooh.. NO! a Sharp Tooth!"
Once we got home we placed the egg in some water, just like the directions said.. they also said to wait abt 72 hours for it to hatch.
So it was kind of a Surprise when it started hatching the very next morning. And well I was getting kinda worried what William would say because it looked like it wasn't going to be a Sharp Tooth. And he had definitely made up his mind, that that's, what it was.
Finally I told him how worried I was if it was a Sharp Tooth... It would EAT us!! You could tell he was getting kinda worried after that.. He left the table where it was for quite a while.. then came back and said.. in a matter of fact tone... "It's a Swimmer!"
Well it wasn't a Swimmer but I don't think he could care less.. He was so excited to see a Spike Tail!
I was just thinking..we still get attached to the things we hatched.. even when we thought they were going to be, well.. Female. lol! :) That's parenting. I love my little Boys!! :)
