My favorite part of the day is our playtime/schooltime which comes after naptime in the afternoon. Yesterday we were playing with Grace's new teaset. She set her little table with the plates/cups/utensils for four people (me, Grace, Mimi, and Granddaddy). She pretended to cook and serve us a menu containing: juice, coffee, hot dogs, spaghetti, carrots, and ice cream. In her pretend play, she told Granddaddy to, "Be careful...don't spill your coffee....use your napkin!" She wouldn't serve Mimi the ice cream until Mimi ate ALL her carrots!

It is so sweet and precious to engage in pretend play with Grace. It makes me realize how much she watches and pays attention to everything I say and do. Children's minds are like sponges, soaking up everything, both good and bad. What a responsibility it is for us as parents to carefully monitor what they see and hear!
