First encounter with a …

We were at my parent’s place. While relaxing under the shady mango tree, Ayden saw a furry creature. I’ll let Ayden tell you the rest of the story …


“So I was sitting on Grandma’s lap when this huge thing came to me. It definitely did not look like any of Mommy’s relative. It has two long ears on its head and a very funny looking face. It walks funny too. It’s like as if it was crawling on all four.

Grandpa has been cheering me to crawl the entire time I am here but now that I see how I might look like crawling, I dont think I want to do that anymore. I prefer walking!


I kept looking at it. Its nose won’t stop moving. I felt insulted. It’s like as if it was telling me that I stink or something. Hello! I just had a bath ok? I smell better than you! And just when I was about to give it a piece of my mind it closes its eyes shut, totally ignoring me. So rude this fella!


As if keeping its eyes shut is not rude enough, it walks away from me when I was still trying to make myself heard! Gah!!

I remembered KorKor Ethan reading me a dinosaur bedtime story not too long ago. KorKor said that generally dinosaurs are huge except a few small ones and if I came across any I should totally run away from it.

I think this fella is a dinosaur, the HUGE ones. But it doesn’t look scary at all. I dont feel like running away from it.


Grandma saw how helpless I was so she placed me in this Bumbo chair ON the table to make me look superior but still Dino is totally oblivious of me. I am totally starting to rage when … Hey!!! Are those SOCKS on my hands?!!! WHY DO I HAVE SOCKS OVER MY HANDS?!! No wonder Dino is totally ignoring me. It must think I’m one weirdo or something. Who did this to me? Hah? Hah?! Why put socks on my hands?!!!”

*raging mode ON*

    Haha. Something i also put sock on Jamie’s hands when I couldnt find his mitten. Keep his hands warmer at night.

    Agreed with Ken. The meat is tender and nutritious.
