There is no doubt that boys are very different from girls. This week for preschool we had a lesson on dinosaurs. Today I had the kids draw their own dinosaur and then we did a little writing prompt about their pet dinosaur. When I sat down with Stevie (I wish that I had taken a picture of her with her dinosaur)to do her writing, she said that her dinosaur was a baby and that her name was Kima. She likes to eat plants and grass and baby dinosaur food. When I asked what Stevie liked to do with her Dinosaur, she said "hold her". So cute, sweet and nurturing, just like a girl. I loved it. Then I sat down with Austin. Here is his story about his pet dinosaur:

My Pet Dinosaur
His name is Austin.
He likes to eat meat.
He likes to kill meat eaters and eat the meat.
I like to play with him.

That last part cracks me up, because who wouldn't want to play with a ferocious meat eating dinosaur.

Isn't it funny the differences between boys and girls. I just found this so interesting today, because I seldom get the chance to see the girl side of things with all these boys in our home. Not that I'm complaining, life with boys is good!

This is so funny! There are definite differences in little boys and girls and how they look at things. I love how he wants to play with the man eating dinosaur. I guess that could be fun!? I think I'd keep my distance!
