Last night I was talking about Allie's upcoming birthday before her bedtime. The past few days she has been excited about her approaching party, but when we talked about it at bedtime yesterday, she started to cry. She held up 2 fingers and told me "I don't wanna be 3 (free as she says it), I wanna be this many. When I asked her why, she looked at me with tears in her eyes and said, "Cause I don't wanna go to preschool I scared. Big kids might run me over."
I melted right there and then caved and let her little almost free year old bottom sleep in my bed with me last night since she was feeling "scared to be free". Jeff was kicked to the guest room to make room for my squirmy almost 3 girl ~ amazing how much room such a little body can require!
