Queen for a Day

Missemilysmom was drawn from the comments for the 1st and Adrienne and Lisa D. for the 2nd. Congrats!

Thanks to all for sharing your stories with me! I've had so much fun reading through the comments. The Dora bed arrived on Thursday. The UPS dude motioned for me to hide Dailaesse as he was coming down the road. Thankfully my dad was home and out in his yard so he grabbed the boxes for me and I took Dailaesse for a walk out back. The bed came in the box it's packed in. She would have lost it right there in the front yard if she had seen it. We won't set it up until Christmas day after she opens it. Maybe she'll be so tired from all the excitement that she won't argue about sleeping in it. I plan to put it in our room to start. Ease her into the idea of sleeping by herself. Although after what she said I don't know that it'll really be a problem. Later that day she got in my face and told me she wasn't going to have to sleep in the middle anymore and that she was glad because I stink. WTF??? I shower everyday. Honest.

Meg in Arizona, Heavenly Evil and Bev please contact me at kerrycrone at adelphia dot net about the scarf exchange. I'd love to add more the exchange if you'd still like to participate.

I took my mom running around town today. She wanted to stop at the dollar store before we went home. Wandering around this toddler's paradise, Dailaesse found about $20 worth of Disney Princess accessories. When we got home we stayed at my moms for a bit and Dailaesse opened all of her new treasures. When my dad and Bran came in from down back my dad whistled at Dailaesse and said, "Well hello Queenie. Don't you look beautiful." Dailaesse's response? "You said I'm a queenie? Uh, NO. I'm a princess." Daddy apologized profusely for the terrible error he had made.

That "princess" tale sounds like our house when gd Breanna's here. From the time she was born, Papa has always called her "Precious" rather than by name. If she's with Mom & Dad and you ask her her name, she'll tell you, but when she's with us and someone asks her, she tells them she's "Precious". Which reminds me... it's time to fire up the embroidery machine and do her a new shirt that fits. Made the first one when she was just a baby and keep making new ones when she grows out of them. They've all said "Mommy & Daddy call me "No! No! but Papa calls me Precious"

ps... I'd love a chance to play in the scarf exchange if you still need a warm body to pair up with someone.

Day 4 and here I am bright and early as usual - haven't missed a day yet :)

I'm wondering if your "stink" could be hair product?

Well, it'll be nice to get your bed back, won't it? Then when it's cold you can snuggle up to Bran without having to worry about little "Princess Dora"...... hmmmmm

Have a lovely day all!

Loved the hat! Good luck with the bed. My granddaughter will not sleep in the spare room when she visits. I have not tried a new bed but I thought the glow in the dark stars were a sure keep me in bed trick.

Stay warm! It snowed last nite here!

A little princess with a queenie attitude - hilarious. How do you stop laughing with all the things she comes up with to say?

adrienne said...

i think all little girls want to be a princess. and when we get "growed-up", we are "the queen"! it is good to be queen 8 }

All that Disney Princess stuff scares me. Especially those tv/vcr/dvd player things. They're just too pink and silly looking. But for a child I bet it's heaven.
