So Josiah spends about a third of the day in dinosaur character. And not just any dinosaur- a scary dinosaur. With his arms raised and folded back to his shoulders, he extends his fierce claws and sets into motion. All the while he roars (or whatever incredibly loud and frightening noises dinosaurs made) and stomps and pounds to and fro, to and fro.
Titus is the recipient to most of Josiah's tormenting, I mean, "dinosauring". I can tell he has broke into dinosaur mode when I hear Titus scream "STOP Siah" and then dash for cover under a table or behind the nearest piece of furniture.
Quite frankly, Josiah really is a scary looking dinosaur, and if it was socially acceptable for someone my age to respond in the same manner as Titus, I probably would. But alas, I am the mother and we mothers must do the motherly thing. Which in this case, requires me telling Josiah to stop scaring his brother.
And to this he responds, " Then can I scare Mommy?" Oh, the sacrifices....
