An Actual Conversation: Dinosaurs

I always thought Mother Bunny was a bit of a control freak, but Pumpkin Pie loves this one.

I was reading to Pumpkin Pie before bed last night and he picked out The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd.  This is a classic book that has been around forever.  It was first published in 1942 and has never been out of print.  Before I read it to him, I checked the publishing date because I was curious just how old it was.

Me: Wow, Pumpkin Pie, this book was written before Nan (my mother) was born!

Pumpkin Pie (completely serious):  Really?  Was that before the dinosaurs?

Me: Um… no.

Pumpkin Pie: Oh, that’s right!  People weren’t around at the same time as dinosaurs.

Me: You got it, buddy.

I am a stay at home mom who now and again sneaks away to be an in-home family therapist. My husband and I have 3 boys: Sweet Pea (12), Pickles (9) and Pumpkin Pie (4). Oh yeah. We have Doodle Dog, too. You guessed it! He’s a boy. At least he pees outside.
