The Princess Proclaims.....

"My mind went on vacation but now it's back!"

"Mom, when I grow up, I'm going to be a Princess Ballerina Fairy Mermaid Astronaut."

"Mom, I'm really sad right now. I wanted to marry Prince Eric. I want to have a real baby. I want to fall in love."

"Mom, I love learning about God and singing about God. Everyone needs to learn about God!"

"Mom, when we say I Love You to each other, it makes my heart sing!"

"Dad, I have to tell you something. Did you know when you eat, your ears wiggle?"

I'm A Big Girl Now

The Princess LOVES the water. Up until now, she has refused all attempts to learn to swim, even with water wings on (you know, those little inflatable bands that go around the kids' arms) instead using her orange floaty to float around the pool. I finally put my foot down and told her that if she wanted to continue to play in the pool, she must TRY every day to swim, starting with floating. She was so scared and could not relax even with my arms holding her from below. So, we purchased a swim vest and the difference was like night and day with her. She had a small kick board from last year that she wanted to try out so she was practicing her swimming holding onto the kick board. I convinced her to put the water wings on and that was the push she really needed. She is all over the pool now, using her legs AND arms to "swim" all over. She told me today "I can swim better than daddy." Not quite Princess, not quite....but soon. :o)
