Story Time

My daughter is 3 years old, and every night I read her a story, sing her a song, and we say our prayers. Last night she shocked me, while I was reading about a squirrel she said "Ouch" and started rubbing her head. I said "What's wrong"? She proceeds to tell me that the squirrel threw an acorn at her head. I started laughing. Then she continues to tell me a story. I got lost in the forest, and she was looking for me. It was the cutest little story, and she just made it up. She was getting into it and making faces as she was telling me about all the animals we encountered. I was so impressed by her imagination. I could not get over how she was really into the story. Even after I finished reading the book, she wanted to continue her story. I did not want her to stop because it was so adorable, but it was past her bed time, so I finally had to tell her to dream about it, and tell me what happened in the morning. I could not get over how into the story she got. Everyday she amazes me.
