And You Too Can Be a Princess!

During our bedtime routine last night, my little boy said: You look beautiful like a princess.

Just as my heart melted from an overload of precious sweetness, he added these qualifiers:

Well, if you had on make-up... and if you had a ponytail... and if you had yellow hair...

What a toot!! I can't match Belle's princessly beauty but I can manage make-up and a ponytail.

However I draw the line at 'yellow' hair!

By the way, I have indulged his StarWars obsession by fighting the darkside as Princess Leia with over the ear hair buns-- teeny tiny hair buns but my little one was absolutely thrilled.

But really, I do draw the line at 'yellow' hair... maybe I can find a wig...


  1. I think you look beautiful like a princess regardless of the colour of your hair!

    And Disney princesses now come in all colours, thank goodness, so that little girls can identify with at least one!

  2. +JMJ+

    Humph! You know, Lesa, I've been neglecting to mention that I love your new profile pic . . . Your hair is just as lustrous and beautiful as that of any Disney princess!

  3. Way cute! Children say the darndest things.

  4. Thanks guys! I wasn't fishing for compliments but I'll sure take'em!

    A FB friend commented that 'kids lift you up then drop you with a thud' yep...
