What Parents Do When Their Kids Sleep

November 21, 2013 2 min read

I stumbled across this incredible story this week and was amazed.  The imagination and love that these parents have for their kids is incredible.  Just wait till you see what they did.  Article by Refe Tuma (Huffington Post) Every year, my wife and I devote the month of November to convincing our children their plastic dinosaur figures come to life while they sleep. It began modestly enough.  The kids woke up to discover that the dinosaurs had gotten into a box of cereal and made a mess on the kitchen table. o-DINOVEMBER-1-570 The next morning, the dinos had climbed onto the kitchen counter to raid the fruit bowl. o-DINOVEMBER-2-570 The morning after that, they had managed to breach the refrigerator and help themselves to a carton of eggs. "Uh-oh," we heard our girls whisper. "Mom and Dad are not going to like this." o-DINOVEMBER-3-570 Things quickly escalated from there. More often than not, the dinos' antics were less than tidy. They are dinosaurs, after all. o-DINOVEMBER-4-570 o-DINOVEMBER-5-570 o-DINOVEMBER-6-570 o-DINOVEMBER-7-570 To be fair, they did clean up after themselves from time to time. o-DINOVEMBER-8-570 Usually, though, the dinosaurs are just like anybody else -- looking to have a good time. o-DINOVEMBER-13-570 o-DINOVEMBER-12-570 o-DINOVEMBER-11-570 o-DINOVEMBER10-570 o-DINOVEMBER-9-570   Why Do we do this? Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don't want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination.  In a time when the answers to all the world's questions are a web search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery.  All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs. Childhood is fleeting, so let's make sure it's fun while it lasts.   -Honestly, I cannot imagine more thoughtful parents.  How much time does it really take to set up these little "displays?"  Ten minutes tops?  Ten minutes for a lifetime of memories and for a month where little children look forward to getting up every morning to see the new shenanigans.  It's absolutely incredible.
