"Dinosaur"

Tonight Audrey had a few memorable moments in a row. Tara has a bedside lamp with a pull cord, and Audrey enjoys turning the light on and off. So I left her in the bedroom playing with the light while I prepared dinner.

However, I hurried to the bedroom when Audrey started to cry in alarm. I found that she had climbed onto the bed (by herself, which is no mean feat), and was crying and pointing to the opposite wall in alarm. It was only her shadow, of course, and we learned about shadows in the fall (tears then as well), but this one was on the wall, and quite big. I said, "It's only your shadow, Audrey," but she was convinced otherwise and said, without prompting,

"No, dinosaur."

Oh, so sad and sweet! I bet she'll have fun making shadow dinosaurs in a few years, though.
