While Their Kids Sleep, These Parents Pull Off This Amazing Stunt…

Once a year, this husband and wife team spend the month of November convincing their children that, each night while they are asleep, their plastic dinosaurs come to life.

It starts off moderately enough.  The kids wake up to find that their little plastic dinosaurs had gotten into a box of cereal and made a mess on the kitchen table…

Soon things progress, and the next morning the dinos have made their way onto the kitchen counter to raid the fruit bowl…

The morning after that, they had managed to breach the refrigerator and help themselves to a carton of eggs.  “Uh-oh,” they heard their girls whisper.  “Mom and Dad are not going to like this…”

Things quickly escalate from there.  More often than not, the dinos’ antics are less than tidy.  They are, after all, dinosaurs…

To be fair, they did clean up after themselves from time to time…

Usually, though, the dinosaurs are just like anybody else - looking to have a good time…

Why do they do this?  Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, they don’t want their kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination.  In a time when the answers to all the world’s questions are just a web search away, they want their kids to experience a little mystery.  All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs.

Hats off to these great parents!
