Pretend play is great

Around 2 or 3 this afternoon, I was feeling really tired. I went and lay down on the spare bed we have in Chloe's room so that Kara could play while I got some rest. Chloe came in and decided that I would be Chloe, she would be mommy, and she would put me to bed. So she did our normal bedtime routine for me: got me (pretend) water, asked me which toy I would like to sleep with, rubbed my back and tucked me in. She even ended with my customary "I'll see you in the morning." I was so sweet, and reminded me just how much children want to be like their parents.

We've also been playing a lot of "pirates" (spurred on by her Dora's Pirate Adventure DVD), going pretend fishing and making pretend cookies. 3 year olds are fun :)
