“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

And I mean the WAY past.

Millions of years past.

After a bit of trepidation regarding his two-year-old sensibilities, my husband and I took our son to his first “live show”.  Harry went “Walking with the Dinosaurs” at Alltel Arena this past Sunday afternoon.

We were a little worried that life-sized dinosaurs roaring with life-sized sound effects would be a bit much for a toddler to handle.

The answer would be, ah, NO!

Harry LOVED it.  He was in little boy heaven, transfixed for the entire two hours (including intermission). 

He was a little too young to understand the narration, which was a excellent balance between fact and public palatability.  But the spectacle he understood perfectly.  It was big.  It was loud.  It was colorful.  It was DINOSAURS!  From the perspective of a little boy – what wasn’t to love?

    If he likes Dinosaurs…Hobby Lobby (in West Little Rock) just got in some stuff-it-yourself dinosaurs. They’re SO cute! $14.99 There’s a T-Rex, Stegosaurus, and a Brontosaurus. The box says they have a Triceratops and a Pteranadon, but I didn’t see either of them when we were putting them on the topcap today.
