Daddy always loves to surprise us. So when daddy came home one day and said

"I got some chickens," Simon and Schuster, my silly brothers, did the chicken dance.

Schuster squealed "Chick ..."

Simon shouted "... ens!"

Simon: "Chick ..."

Schuster: "... ens!"

Back and forth.

They talk like that. They finish each others sentences. Back and forth. Back and forth.

They think they're twins and they are. Sort of.

Daddy and mommy call me "Mapetite". I'm six. My weird brothers are four.

And look! They try to stay in their jamies all day.

Daddy brought home two chickens. A hen and a rooster. They made a lot of noise which Simon and Schuster repeated.

Simon: "Cock ..."

Schuster: "... adoo ..."

Simon: "... dle ..."

Schuster: "... doo!"

Over and over. They thought they were really funny.

We gave them chicken food. The chickens. Not Simon and Schuster. We took them for walks.

We called them Prima and Donna.

Prima made lots of noise. He danced all around Donna. Donna didn't like him much.

But then Donna laid eggs which we saw but then they went away.

Simon: "Daddy took ..."

Schuster: "... the eggs."

Simon: "To eat ..."

Schuster: "... for brekast."

Simon: ".Mmmmm"

Schuster: "Yummy!"

Then they did the chicken dance again. Silly brothers!

One day Donna laid a really big egg.

"Don't touch it!" Daddy said. We always listen to our daddy. Well, I always do.

Simon and Schuster don't always. So they would walk up to the really big egg and pet it.

Simon: "Good ..."

Schuster: "... egg."

Daddy said, "That's a really big egg! Chickens descended from dinosaurs. Maybe there's a dinosaur in that egg."

Simon: "Oooo ..."

Schuster: "... ooooh!"

They looked at the egg to make it crack open faster. They checked it a lot. We waited forever.

One day it cracked and popped open. Guess what came out!

We had to give him a name.

Schuster said: "Di ..."

Simon said: "... no."

I said: "Dino!"


We took Dino for a walk. His legs were shaky at first but then he got better. He made squeaky noises a little like a chick.

Simon said: "Sque ..."

Schuster said: "... eak!"

Schuster said: "Sque ..."

Simon said: "... eak!"

Over and over. Silly brothers!

Dino ate leaves. He ate grass. He tried to eat our clothes.

Schuster: "Sto ..."

Simon: "... op!"

Simon: "Sto ..."

Schuster: "... op!"

And so on.

I finally said "Stop it, Dino! Just eat grass!"

He did.
