“Really, ima. Do you do it?”
It was a heavy one, and I’m kinda not sorry that #dinovember 2016 is officially closed…

Is it 2016 and you’re still doing dinovember?
Is it 2016 and you’re still not doing dinovember?
Ok, point taken. So what is it, again?
A chance to tap into the creativity you haven’t accessed since childhood. Also, a chance to freak your kids out.
How does one do dinovember?
Here’s a quick how-to on Dinovember:
Step 1: November. Is it November? Yes.
Step 2: Dinosaurs.
Step 3: After your kids go to bed, release their toy dinosaurs from their pent up state and arrange them in some scene around the house.
Step 3a: Have fun with it.
Step 4: Keep your ear out for when your kids wake up and discover what the dinosaurs did last night.
Step 5: Repeat.
Do the kids know it’s you? They do, right? I mean, c’mon.
You know what’s amazing about kids? There’s no One Truth for a kid. This can be possible, and also, this other thing can be possible. Or this thing is probably possible, but that doesn’t mean this other thing is definitely not possible.
I won’t be the one to destroy that reality for my kids, not now, anyway. It’s a gift we’re born with, and I’m sorry you lost yours so soon.
Wow, this is genius. You started this? You should write a book!
So how can I follow this?
You got me. I’ll share the love.
Thanks on behalf of plastic toy dinos everywhere.
Season finale… unlike Serial, you definitely get an ending. The answer to November’s daily question. Unfortunately for the kids… they can’t read.
Underwear attack! Last night the dinosaurs didn’t go commando but realized they were mistaken on the assumption these undergarments were edible.
“Hmm so according to the book… you guys might have overdone it on the corn… and the foliage. And T-Rex… no. Just no.”
It soon occurred to them that perhaps they had ingested a different kind of mushroom.
Everyone googles themselves, don’t they?
Sugar and spice,
And everything nice,
That’s what dinos are made of…
(And also teeth and cartilage and probably feathers…)
(Also other pretty resilient stuff since they didn’t eat any minty green chocolate chip cookies before morning…)
(Well, maybe one…)
