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?"

It was another 90° day today. We normally go into the pool at least once a day, usually twice. This morning, like most mornings, we got on our suits and got into the pool. After playing for a while, I asked E if she felt like taking her water wings off. She initially said "No." I said, "trust me, I won't let anything happen to you." She said "No." Then she changed her mind. Off came the water wings. Tentatively, she got herself in the water. I had her start at the shallow end of the pool, where she can stand with her head out of the water. She took a breath, leaned forward and off she went....swimming right into my arms. She was ecstatic. We were static. She said "I never thought I would do that!" Then, with new found confidence, she swam over to her dad. Then back to me. Then over to show her "friends" Flounder and Ariel. I knew she could do it. She was afraid. But in the end, she decided that she would trust me.
