Putting the 3yr old to bed and reading the bedtime story.
“ The Brachiosaurus was the largest animal on land.”
“No mummy, stop. You’re wrong.”
‘Well that’s what it says here in the book, the Brachiosaurus.”
“NO. It’s the Broccolisaurus. “ Waving hands for emphasis.
Laughing a little because, hey, that’s cute.
“Do NOT laugh at me Mummy. The book is wrong. It’s a Broccolisaurus.”
“I’m fairly sure you pronounce it Brachio…….”
“You are wrong and the book is wrong.”
Moments silence as we stare each other down, I pick up the book.
“Right then, the Broccolisaurus was the biggest land animal.”
Contended sigh of self-righteousness from the 3yr old
