After 2 very serious posts, I think it's time for me to lighten the mood around here a little.
Here's the conversation between me and Princess this morning:
Princess: *Hands me her empty cereal bowl* "I'm going to get married now, Mommy."
Me: "Okay, have fun!"
Princess: "Okay, bye!"
Me: *Spots a mess of dollhouse furniture scattered on the floor* "Hold on, kiddo. Before you can get married, you have to pick up your toys."
Princess: *Sighs* "Yes, Ma'am"
A few minutes pass...
Princess: "I'm all done! Can I get married now?!?"
Me: *Checks to be sure she's telling the truth* "Looks good! Okay, you can get married now."
Princess: "Yay! Thank you so much, Mommy!" Bye!" *Puts on her tulle covered tiara and pink sequin dress-up shoes and disappears into her room*
I never thought I'd be giving my 3 year old daughter permission to get married on the condition that she clean up her toys first.
