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?"

Warm and Sunny and Fun With Friends!

Beautiful weather beckoned us outside today, so this afternoon, The Princess rode her bike over to our friend's house to play with her granddaughter, "B". 

Even though there is a three year age difference, they play very well together and enjoy each other. We made body outlines on the driveway and colored them with chalk, then went inside and the girls played while I visited with my friend, Tami. Then the kids came out and danced to the theme song to "Frannie's Feet" on tv, over and over and over and over and over...and giggled the whole time. I LOVE hearing them laughing together. E's daddy was due home from work so we headed home, with the promise to come back and visit soon.

Now hubby is home, dinner is over and he and E are playing in her room. Perfect end to a great day!

Baking With Mom

The Princess asked me to make some brownies.  I had gotten a new recipe in the mail with a catalogue that showed mint brownies with mint icing.  So I had Nick go get a few things at the store but didn't tell E so it would be a surprise.

After her rest time, I told her to wash her hands and come in the kitchen.  I had all the cooking supplies out, plus a chair for her to stand on to help.  She took one look and got a huge smile on her face "We're making Mint Brownies" she said. I asked her "Why do you think we are making Mint Brownies?"  She said "Well, Mom.  You Do have all the cooking stuff out!"  *said with the a long suffering voice, rolling of eyes, hands on hips* LOL

We had a nice time mixing up the brownies.  It was tough for her to wait until it was time to ice the brownies.  Every few minutes "Is it time mom?"  Anytime I made a move to open a drawer or cabinet in the kitchen (I was making diner) she'd say "WAIT MOM. I WANT TO HELP!"  

Finally it was time to make the icing.  After I put the icing on the brownies, The Princess got to lick the icing bowl.  What kid doesn't love that treat??  

After dinner, we cut the brownies and enjoyed some of the most delicious brownies I've made.  The icing was so good (mint flavored like the brownies) but I know this is not a treat I will make often.  Very fattening.  But you need to have treats like once in a while, right?

She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

I've noticed over the last few weeks, a tendency for more drama from The Princess. Today was no exception.

I was on my computer, when The Princess came up to me and asked me if she could play on Disney Online. I told her no and before I could say that she could play later, she scrunches up her nose, clenches her fist and says "You Are A Mean Mom Who Doesn't Want Me To Have Fun!"

Now, I'm feeling the love those are not words you want to hear from your child. I told her "You want to see a mean mom? Go to your room and sit on your bed. Don't play with any toys or read any books." My point being, your accusation of me being mean was just as unfounded as me sending her to her room for no reason.

Apparently this lesson was lost on The Princess. Well, she is only five but that was the best I could come up with on short notice.  I don't think quickly on my feet.  I'm hoping she doesn't notice this anytime soon.  Anyway, she lost it. Lost. It. Screamed at the top of her lungs for a good ten minutes. She knows the rule...if she screams and screams, I shut her door. She doesn't like that. She soon settled down.

When I went to talk to her, she was laying on her bed, with her eyes closed. I thought she must have worn herself out screaming so she fell asleep. Nope, she opened her eyes and sat up in bed giving me just about the saddest face I've ever seen. After a brief conversation about why I had her go in her room, she told me "Mom, do you know why I had my eyes close? I was praying to God. I asked him to please forgive me and wished that you would forgive me to. Do you?"  Well, how can you be mad at a sweet little girl after that? "Of course I forgive you, Princess." She said "I'm so glad mom, that you always forgive me."

A few minutes alter, she asked me if she could have some Bunny Crackers. I told her sure. She looked at me with a smile and said "Mom, You Are The Best Mom In The World."

Five year old girls can be fickle and full of drama.  I have no idea where she gets it from.  Really.  Drama or no drama, love me or not, I'm so thankful that this five year old is mine! :o)
