This weekend, we went to “the big Walmart”. This is news because we normally go to “the little Walmart”. But we had to go to the big Walmart to get a specific kind of DVD for our ultrasound scan this week. While we were there, we had to stop by and look for a few things that we can’t get at the little one – a/c filters, watch batteries, baby toys. 🙂
We had to see if we could find a gender-neutral toy for baby since we were at the big Walmart. Emily picked out a dinosaur toy. She has been studying dinosaurs at school for the last few weeks and so it’s fitting that she would pick this toy.
She’s only in Pre-K, but she really knows a lot about all the dinosaurs. She knows which ones are meat-eaters, which ones are plant-eaters, which ones are as big as two elephants and what’s special about each one.
Her class made Dinosaur Books that shows a picture of each dinosaur and tells a little about them. We have looked through this several times as she tells me about each one.
One day last week, she asked me if I knew what “distinct” meant. I said yes and explained what it meant. And she said “Well, the dinosaurs are distinct.” I said I think you mean “extinct”. Yes she did! I was very proud of her for trying it though.
