Throw Elmo Away

We have been prepping Noah for the day that he will be done with his "night-nights" (pacifiers). I am planning to have him throw them away when he turns three and I tell him that I will buy him a Cranky Toy (crane from Thomas the Train) as a reward. I also have been telling him that throwing away his night-nights is the first step to being able to go to pre-school which he always seems to get really excited about.
Today, on our way home from church, I was having this conversation with him about becoming a big boy, throwing away his night-nights, getting a Cranky, and going to school. Out of nowhere Maia looks at me and says, "I be a big goo-low (girl) and get a Thomas and go to skoo and throw my Elmo away?" I was amazed. I cannot believe that little girl is only one and that she understands and grasps concepts the way that she does. I have never mentioned her throwing Elmo away or getting her a Thomas toy but she figured if it applied to Noah then it would apply to her as well.
I told her that she didn't have to worry about throwing Elmo away any time soon!

HAHAHA!! She is SOOOO SMART!! WOW! It is funny... I don't think Noah uses the night nights here... he just has ALL of them - including Liam's - next to him when he sleeps!
