My sweet little L has an addiction.
It's her cassie (known to others as a pacifier). We recently went to the dentist and he mentioned, no TOLD me that she has to lose it. I know this. I've known this for over a year now. It's just hard. Very, very hard. L is a screamer, crier, mean-face maker gal when it comes to her cassie. We've banned cassie except at night and naptime, but occassionally cassie still finds her way back into L's mouth. Yesterday, my mom was trying to get L to lay down for a nap with the understanding that she could only have cassie if she was laying down. No sitting, no standing - only laying down. As they got quiet and comfortable, mom heard L quietly mumbling, "Don't even think about it. If you get up, no cassie!" It was like a little "pep-talk" in her head. It sounds like the ones I have in regard to Dr. Pepper. Don't even think about drinking that!
L also has some other cute sayings....
She likes to play a game called "Silence Says" - you might know it as Simon Says!
N built a cottage out of cushions this week. L says, "let's go play in Bubba's college"
The other day while playing doctor, I said, "are you dr. L?" to which she replied, "no, I'm Dr. Suess"
I LOVE the sweet voice of my 3 y.o. as she discovers more and more of the world around her. I love that she is passionate about things! I'm so thankful God gave me a daughter to love! I hope that one day L and I will have fun and enjoy being together the way I enjoy being with my mom.
My mom's mom was not able to be a very good mother and my mom missed out alot on some encouragement and unconditional love. I'm so grateful for all my mom has invested and is still investing in my life and the lives of my children!
