Best Princess Friends

We are two peas in a pod, my little girl and me. She wants desperately to be me. She copies everything I do (with the exception on whining - I so don't whine...okay, maybe a little, but not in a high pitched, sing-songy kinda way). She wants to dress like me, walk like me, cook like me, talk like me, read like me. She's 3 going on 30. Even today she asked me when her prince will come. She just doesn't think she can wait any longer.

It's no wonder she thinks I have all the answers to life's questions. I've been writing down several of the adorable questions she's been asking me of late. Thankfully, these are easy ones that I know the answers to. Princess Mommy to the rescue!

*At McDonald's eating a happy meal. "Mommy does this circle meat make little girls muscle's bigger?" Oh yes, honey. Lot's of muscles from circle meat!

*Driving in the car together running errands. A look of deep contemplation etched in her face. "Mommy, why don't Daddy's get wedgies?" Obviously, she's been having wedgie issues. I recently let her in on the technical term for getting your panties in a wad in your behind. Now, I imagine her looking at everyone wondering if they do or don't get wedgies.

*I just finished a rather serious, frustrating talk with another small, boy member of the family (to remain nameless). I was very perturbed by his choices and my countenance as well as my face were reflecting this mood. Chloe, hating to see me upset, came up to me and asked, "Mommy, is there anything I need to say sorry for?" She thought her apology would make me happy again. I informed her that just because I was upset with her brother, does not mean I'm upset with her. You should have seen the look of relief cross her face. Whew!

*I was cuddling her in the morning and her feet were ice cold. I asked her why she didn't have her slippers on. "Mommy, Lava girl doesn't get cold cuz she's made of lava." Duh! I should have seen that one coming. Sometimes I just don't think.

*Upon seeing a messy room she declares, "Everything rat girl sees is junk." Love the superhero theme, but how on earth did you come up with these names?

*I recently showed Chloe that every time she sees a church, she'll see a steeple or cross. That cross should remind us of Jesus and what he did for us and how much he loves us. EVERYTIME since aforementioned educational moment she yells out, "Mommy! A cross! I LOVE Jesus!....and Santa!"

Brilliant post. I had a similar situation with my son. He wanted to be me and was desperate about his blond hair - mine's black. He could never be like Daddy! It took some long convincing but I got him to like his hair by pointing out that most everyone has brown hair, and only a few special people like him & Mommy have blond hair. So he felt sorry for me and wished I was more like him. Um, probably not PC. But it worked!

How very sweet! I love those questions, and there seems to be a never ending supply at that age!

My favorite: "I love Jesus! And Santa!" Precious.

Great picture of the two of you!

Maybe it's a natural thing to be a princess and be a bit whiny--at least that's how Princess Esther is. Such a cute picture of you two!!

Katrina stole my favorite part..."I love Jesus...and Santa!" That's great. I love inquisitive children...

Jennifer said...

You just can't include Jesus without Santa...I mean, what if Santa found out that you didn't love him too??? Where would that leave her come December??? You have to be sure to keep all of your bases covered, right?!?!

Such a good picture of the both of you :)

Cute, cute! Little girls and their mamas! See some of our little girl's questions and comments on my post from Jan 11 or 12. I've been keeping a book of funny things....

Awwww...I absolutely LOVE talking with or listening to my 3 year old. It is fascinating how their minds work and the reality they see vs. ours.
