The Big Three

Based on one of our latest Library finds- "Pajama Day", Caiden has called a McLaughlin Pajama Day for this gray and drippy morning. Super fun! We're going to have breakfast for lunch and wear our p.j's. In honor of our pajama day, I though I would write a proper post about my big three year old. This post was inspired by our bed time conversation last night. (Plus, I knew I needed to get this down before I forgot it! ) =)

After I got Addison down last night, I snuck back into Caiden's room to snuggle with her and help her settle down. We usually tell stories during this time, but last night I decided to take the time to really get to know my daughter. Here's a (non-verbatim) transcript of my peek into her world.

If God ever allows me to become a G.G., you can bet I'll have toys to play with! In fact, I've already started collecting them!
