The Amazing Dinovember Parents

The Amazing Dinovember Parents

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.

The next morning, the dinos had climbed onto the kitchen counter to raid the fruit bowl.

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.’

Last night we shut the dinosaurs in a box to keep them from defacing more walls. They broke out—all except for Steggy. He’s gained a few pounds.
