Last night Spence was putting Lezlee to bed and she started to tell him about a boy in her Preschool class. Here's how the conversation went.....
Lez: Daddy guess what! Yesterday, my friend Preston left his blankie in the mailbox for the "Blankie Fairy" and in the morning he went to the mailbox and there was a baseball glove!!
Lez: I want to put my blankie in the mailbox and then the Fairy will leave me something cool!
Spence: But honey, if you leave your blankie then you will never see it again. The fairy will bring you something cool, but you won't get your blankie back.
Lez: Oh..... (thinking...) Well maybe I could just put in a blankie that I don't like very much and still get something cool.
Spence: (Totally trying not to laugh at our conniving 3 year old) Well sweetie, the "Blankie Fairy" knows if you don't leave your favorite.
Lez: Oh man!
Seriously! Maybe all other 3 year olds are this smart and I'm the clueless one! But really, she can find a way around ANYTHING!!

Lezlee and Lincoln were playing "Doctor" last night. It was very cute as they took each other very seriously. They came to the kitchen and asked if I had set up an appointment yet with the doctor and then told me that they could take care of that for me. It was sweet. So a little while later I asked Lezlee if she wanted to be a doctor when she grows up and she said, "No." So I said, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" And she didn't even hesitate when she said, "I want to be a mom. I want to be a mom just like you, Mommy!!" Oh it was so sweet! It made me feel like I might be doing something right sometimes. There was something in her tone that made it seem like she thinks it is a great thing to be a mom and I am so thrilled that she thinks that! If I can teach her one thing about myself it is that I LOVE being a mom! I want my kids to know that every day of their lives..... that being home with them is exactly what I want to be doing!
