Pet Dragon

"Look, Mom. This is my pet dragon."

Cringing, I said, "Oooohh! Is he gonna burn my house down with his fiery breath?"

"Oh no. He's not a fire-breathing dragon. He's a nice one. Do you want to know what his name is?"


"Daddy said that if I named him a silly name, he would be silly. And if I named him a strong name, he would be strong. And if I named him a smart name, he would be smart. His name is Humongo-saurus. That's a strong name."

Then the rest of the day, I was randomly asked to step around the place where Humongo-saurus was sleeping, or to fix some kind of food for Humongo-saurus to eat. It was fun. Aren't imaginations cool?

So wonderful! and you are commended (as is Bret) to take the time to play along and encourage that imgination of his! I'm glad Humongo-saurus uses his strength to do good things...I'm sure he got his good example from Conner!
Love you! MOM pfu,wpfy

I just love your family picture!

It was funny because he came up to me later and said, "Dad, is good that Humongo-saurus is so strong, but I think he needs to be a little smarter...I'll name him Smarty-pants now."

Good call Conner, big dumb dragons are a bit of a liability.

I think after a while I would have had Humongo-saurus confined to a bedroom so I could actually walk through my house and get chores done (I guess the chores that needed to be done in the dino's room would have to wait.) ha ha
