Princess

I love kids! This weekend I got to meet Princess Cinderella and her big brother who sings pirates songs, waves a light saber, and had his 5th birthday. They were just what I needed-a breath of fresh air. Kids are great and you can learn a lot from them if you give them a chance. Here are a few of the things that little Anikin Skywalker and Princess Cindrella taught me:
  • If you are patient I will love you because I trust you
  • When I'm hurt, if you will pick me up, cradle me in your arms, and let me cry for just moment-then you are my new friend because you saw me weak and still love me
  • Singing is a good thing almost any time of day
  • Play games with me, not so much to play the game, more I just want to know you are paying attention to me (This lesson learned with the kids kept hiding in the exact same spot while playing hide-n-go-seek, just so we would find them and tickle them)
  • Tell me my shoes look pretty (even though they are on the wrong feet and 5 sized too big)
  • when you want me to understand you come down to my level, speak softly and look into my eyes.
  • I understand better when things are simple
  • A little love goes a long way
  • If you give me positive encouragment then I am more willing to try things I'm not so good at and succeed
  • if you make eating interesting then I might actually eat
  • every little girl (and big girl for that matter) is a princess
I am continuosly amazed at how easy it is to love the wee ones. I will miss my princess and Anikin greatly, but they put a smile on my heart and brought laughter to my lips and for that I am greatful!

With lots of love, Princess Snow White
