Conversations with Cash

Saturday night, bedtime:
Cash: Mom, where does God live?
Me: God lives in Heaven.
C: No, where does he live right here?
Me: Well, I guess God lives in your heart.
C: Oh...(ponders this a few minutes, grabs his foot)...Jesus lives in my toenail.

Cash is almost 3 1/2 now, and I feel like he is becoming a different child lately. He asks a lot of questions, tells stories, and seems a lot less tormented than earlier this year. He is a really curious kid who still loves his naps and especially likes imaginary play. He has also started having conversations with himself where he asks himself questions that only he can answer. Example: What do you want for lunch today, Cash? Oh, grapes? Okay. (I am thinking this is normal, right?)

Cash is in just his undies 70% of the time, so it's hard to get a picture of him dressed. I wanted to show this picture to illustrate how Cosette can not get enough of him. She calls for him when she wakes up. Here, she had a lot of space to choose from, but she climbed up on the couch and sat almost directly on Cash's lap. He was annoyed, but she loves him so!

Most of the time, Cash is good-natured about Coco wanting to do everything with him, like here:

These kiddos definitely keep me on my toes and do end up slap-fighting if I'm not watching, but most of the time they play so well together. I feel like they are experiencing toddlerhood at the same time, which is so fun. They are actually the only kids in the nursery right I hope they stay good buddies for a long while!
