Okay, I’m just going to come out and say I don’t mind princesses – and I kind of like Sofia the First and Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. But there comes a point when there are too many princesses! Toddler, like many 3yo girls, is OBSESSED with princesses. Of the loooong text file we keep of her funny sayings, I bet 40-50% of them involve princesses (the rest involve toots and body parts, naturally).
So today I bring two princessy conversations, the first from at least a year ago and the second from Saturday night at dinner (and FYI, my husband really can do that! And well!). Typical princess talk!
Toddler: “Cinderella had dreams.”
Me: “What did Cinderella dream about?”
Toddler: “Cinderella was dreaming about more princes.”
(Apparently one Prince Charming is not enough.)
Toddler: “I’m a princess! That makes you…. [points to me] … the queen!”
Me: “Wow, great! And so that makes dad the….”
[Husband and I are laughing!]
Toddler: “He’s the court juggler! He juggles Rice Krispies .. and mittens!”
There you have it: my family in a nutshell – the queen is married to the court jester and we have a princess (just one, because she later said her little sister is not a princess).
