Last month while watching the Winter Olympics on tv Lil' Miss started playing Olympics/election with her dinosaurs. They were discussing amongst themselves who is going to skate what, some sort of combination between speed skating (she loves Apolo Anton Ohno since she saw him on Dancing With The Stars) and figure skating. Whoever won the competition would get to be the new president, so I guess I need to explain how elections work again! Anyway, the dinosaurs were all patiently lined up on the arm of the couch awaiting their turn on the ice, a book serving as the ice they would take turns skating on. Then, of course, Destructo-Boy comes over and knocks the ice (book) and about half the dinosaurs onto the floor, so a wrestling match between the siblings commenced over possession of the dinosaurs, amazing similarities to a real election if you ask me! Recently they have been getting pulled out daily during Destructo-Boy's morning nap (so he can't mess them up) and played with in the doll house.
I just love to watch her imagination at work and even though I don't quite understand the attraction, I do hope her enjoyment of dinosaurs lasts a good long time. You never know, maybe someday Lil' Miss will decide to be a paleontologist and discover some new species never heard of before!
