Another snowy day in Brooklyn...one would think we are in the Ice Age.  But today's request takes us to the Triassic period.  Ah, I love when Oscar wants me to draw a dinosaur - the great ancestors of birds.  And today, his utterance was "draw your favorite dinosaur."  What a generous spirit.  How can it be anything but a Pterodactyl?  But here's my geek-out moment:  not really dinosaurs, strictly speaking.  Scientists are so darn specific with their nomenclature.  So let's review:  winged lizard; also known as pterosaurs; hollow bones; and the most important reference?  Inspiration for the greatest character on Pee Wee's Playhouse - Pterri!  I really loved his lisp - so endearing.  Oscar was pleased with the sketch, and even said the eggs "looked yummy."  Um, nice Fred Flintstone moment sweetie.  Happy Tuesday all - keep warm :)  xoxo
