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?"

A Girl And Her Dolphin

Ever since going to the Clearwater Aquarium this spring during the Grandma Invasion, E has fallen in love with dolphins.  A few weeks ago we saw that Flipper (the version from the 1960's) was on a cable channel so she began watching the show everyday (well not anymore as of today but that is another post). 

During the daytime she often sees the PillowPets commercial on tv.  Can you guess which animal just happens to be offered by PillowPets?  Yep.  A dolphin.  She asked me a few times if I could get her one so I gave her another standard parental answer "Maybe you will get one for your birthday or Christmas."  She really seemed ok with that answer.

I've really noticed a HUGE improvement in E's behavior over the past few weeks.  She controls her temper more, she is more agreeable at bed time, she tries really hard to listen when I tell her something, she doesn't argue about I said, a HUGE improvement.

I decided to go online and order the dolphin PillowPet for The Princess.  It arrived late last week and I wish I had had my camera ready to take a picture of her face.  She was beyond thrilled.  The joy in her voice and her behavior was just the reaction I hoped for.  She was so surprised and has spent the last few days telling us over and over again how happy she is to have her "Flipper" PillowPet.

PillowPets really are cute and seem to be well made.  They are also BIG...and soft and comfy.  And she is never without it.  Don't worry Clarice (her stuffed reindeer), you are still her favorite.  You're like Woody from Toy Story and Flipper the PillowPet is like Buzz.  She loves you both. :o)
