Into the Mind of a Three Year Old

in a different perspective, Baby Girl

My three year old daughter is incredibly cute. I’m not biased or anything. Just see for yourself.

Baby Girl
See? I told you so.

Not only is she beautiful on the outside, but she’s an incredibly sweet little girl as well. And smart. Also? Funny. Truly funny – not just “Oh, she’s so cute so I’ll laugh at anything” funny either.

I love all these qualities about her. She’s definitely got a strong combination going for herself.

Sometimes I look at her and I can just see the wheels turning in her head. Then she’ll burst out with some random thought. I love those moments. They give me an opportunity to glimpse into her little brain and get an idea of what she’s thinking about all day.

Some of the random thoughts she’s said lately:

  • Mommy, you’re my best friend.
  • When I grow up, I want to be a detective.
  • Daddy’s a funny guy, isn’t he mommy?
  • You know what abuela? I’m from the United States.

They all make sense to me and my husband. And all show different characteristics of baby girl: love, aspirations, admiration, and culture.

She continually surprises me and never ceases to amaze me. And I just want to eat her all up. But, then she’d tell me “Mommmyyy, we DON’T eat peopleeee!”

What craziness do you love about your children? Let’s share some positive memories in the comments to get away from the everyday aggravations for a little bit.

Thanks so much for visiting Pajamas and Coffee- I love your blog!
Let’s see- what’s cute about my 4 kids? Um. My 4 year old son, who still (thank God) wears footie pajamas, climbs under the covers and curls up next to me and says “You’re always cuddly, Mommy!”
Love. It.

@marymac, Awww…I love the snuggle time! Question: Where in the world do you find footie pajamas for a 4 year old? We love footies but can’t find them big enough. And, I’m so glad you like my blog!

My son likes to snuggle in the morning. He goes ”mami, let’s shnuggle wuggle puggle before getting up” … that might explain why am late to work sometimes, lol

@Elsa, Ha! That’s happened to me before too. But, I adore the morning snuggles!
