In my not-so-brilliant attempt to teach Kai about dinosaurs (that’s what we’re studying this month) I found Jurassic Fight Club today while flipping through channels and thought it might be cool to show her what dinosaurs look like.
I mean, it’s on the History Channel, so how scary could it be, right? She wasn’t really scared to see the dinosaurs fighting. She thought that was cool. And when I told her the mommy dinosaur was protecting her baby she thought that was even cooler. That mommy dinosaur kicked some serious butt and I think moms became a little cooler in her mind after seeing that.
But, perhaps I should have screened the show first, because when I told her that her mommy was like that dinosaur and would protect her just like that mommy dino did I didn’t realize what was coming next.
Immediately after saying that, the big bad boy dinosaur killed the baby and was then beaten up by the mommy dinosaur. And then it happened. The mommy dinosaur ate her own baby. ‘Cause, you know, she needed some food after all that fighting.
And Kai looked at me suspiciously and said, “So, if I die, will you eat me, too?”
