Dinosaur Train

There's a show on PBS called Dinosaur Train that is one of our new favorites. We only started watching it because it's on at the prime time between lunch and nap, when Mommy is ready for a break and Elias needs to start settling down. So we turned it on one day, and Elias just LOVES it! I'm really not even sure why, because the science and information is too old for him. I guess he just loves the colors and characters, and maybe he's learning too! I'm certainly learning a lot of things about dinosaurs I never knew! I'd highly recommend this show for anybody whose littles are a bit bigger than mine! I took a video, though, of Elias saying "Dinosaur Train" and calling "All aboard!" like the conductor. This TOTALLY cracks me up because he says it at a pitch that could shatter glass. Prepare to laugh out loud at the video. At least I did. Then at the end there's a clip of him saying a couple of the characters' names. He's gotten to the point where when he's done eating lunch, he'll start saying "Dinosaurs? Dinosaur train? Tiny? Shiny? Buddy?" Mommy doesn't mind if we turn it on. :)

It's amazing how much easier he gets on the couch than C does. I guess because he's so much taller. Either that, or you have a shorter couch. :) Very cute how much he knows from the show!

We've become fans of Dinosaur Train, too. Funny!

Hey Joni- you probably already found the online site for Dinosaur Train- but Jacob thinks it's fun. We like printing out the coloring pages on PBS sites. You know as moms of boys we're going to have to know all our dinosaurs. Too bad my extensive knowledge of Disney Princesses isn't worth anything right now... :)
