My toddler loves dinosaurs. Any toddler who doesn’t?
Seeing my toddler with his dinosaurs and knowing how he adores them, my Korean friend arranged for our visit to the Seodaemun Museum of Natural History today. After her own toddler’s nursery class, she passed by my place to pick up Little Dynamo and me and off we went to the museum.
As the musuem is all about natural history, expect to see all kinds of minerals and rocks on display. I’m not into this so I breezed through this section which is located at the third floor. My son didn’t know where to start or which large dinosaur model to go to when we went to the outdoors of the third floor. We stayed there for quite a while as this was a hit to the kids. The second floor displays birds and animals… and dinosaurs. The Little Dynamo just kept on pointing and can’t seem to decide which to concentrate on. Case of visual overload for my toddler. But he was all smiles:-) When he had enough of the exhibits at the second floor, he asked for “the dinosaur movie, mommy”. Good thing there is a 3D dinosaur movie at the first floor. He kept on bugging me to watch the 15-minute 3D animation again.
But, what made my son’s day complete? He was able to bring home a Pterodactyl Dinosaur… a flying dinosaur which he never stopped eyeing until I gave in. I shelled out 6,000-won for that toy for these:
- my son beaming with pride as he showed his new toy, “look tita Cristin”
- non-stop playing with his dinosaur while we were having our afternoon snack at PoeTree coffee shop
- I convinced him to go to the gym before dinner and aside from doing my weights, I was able to do my cardio while he enjoyed “scaring” his three 6-year old playmates in the aerobics room of the gym
- and as I am writing this, his flying dinosaur is safely tucked beside him in bed – he endlessly played with it before dozing off to deep slumber
Time to be under the sheets with my Little Dynamo…
