WASHINGTON -- Move over facial hair, November is no longer reserved for mustaches.
One Kansas City couple has dedicated the entire month to convincing their children that their plastic dinosaur toys come to life while they sleep.
"It began modestly enough. The kids woke up to discover that the dinosaurs had gotten into a box of cereal and made a mess on the kitchen table," Refe Tuma writes on Medium.com.
From there the dinosaurs went haywire. The next morning, they had climbed onto the counter and eaten all the fruit.
"The morning after that, they had managed to breach the refrigerator and help themselves to a carton of eggs. 'Uh-oh,' we heard our girls whisper. 'Mom and Dad are not going to like this,'" Tuma writes.
It was only a matter of time before the dinosaurs messed with the toilet paper and took a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle hostage.
To see what the dinosaurs are up to, follow them on Facebook or on Twitter using the hashtag #dinovember.
