Raising two self-proclaimed princesses brings all sorts of fairy tales back to me daily. My girls are obsessed with princesses! Even at two years of age, C can identify and name each and every Disney princess.
But lately, it's been the Princess and the Pea that runs through my mind most often.
I always enjoyed the story of the Princess and the Pea as a child. It was a little fantastical for me, but the idea that a true princess could feel a tiny pea under all those mattresses? THAT is the stuff that fantasies are made of!
Since E's started school, C has really begun to come into her own. It's been fascinating, and a bit frustrating, to watch her little personality grow and expand when her big sister isn't around.
And C? She must have a bit of real princess in her.
Why? Because every morning while M is taking a nap, C asks for a snack. And do you know what she asks for?
Seriously; the kid asks for frozen peas. And she'll eat two bowls full. Every morning.
Sometimes it's nice having a princess (or two) in house!
But, no, I'm still not the queen.
