Quality Time With A Three Year Old

This past year has been an interesting one for us.  Emily is three and a half now and basically runs the show.  She's so independent and strong willed.  She's got a huge imagination and a mind of her own, which I adore.  Sometimes she'll want to cuddle up and relax but most of the time she's non-stop, wanting to go go go.
