Part of our nightly routine with Addison is that each of us takes a turn to read a bedtime story before lights out (his little 3-year old self included). Last night I read Mercer Mayer's "When I Get Bigger", which led into a great after-story conversation.
"What do you want to do when you get bigger, Addison?"
"I'll drive all by myself and I'll make dinner for you."
"You know what I want to do when I get bigger? Paint furniture." (I want to refinish and restore old cabinets and dressers into unique pieces like these and these and these)
"You can do that now, Mommy."
I can't help but smile. *more hugs*
Soon, buddy.... soon.
