I Caught Her


I caught her running across the yard in pink plastic princess slippers and a gown.

Her destination was not the ball at the palace, though.

Her destination was either the chicken coop or the cow pasture.

I convinced her that barbed wire was not kind to ball gowns. I figured that would convince her to stay closer to the house where I could more easily supervise her.

She considered my words carefully before looking me straight in the eye, stripping off the pink plastic princess slippers and ball gown, and running back toward the pasture.

It is a humbling experience to be outsmarted by a three-year-old on a regular basis.

Sounds like things are about back to normal around your home! LOL

BTW... being outsmarted by your offspring doesn't feel any better when they're 13, either. Ha!

It's so cute how little girls just LOVE anything pink or princessy! :) True country girl spirit though.....wasn't going to give up her adventures for it, though!

That is a country girl at heart!!
my little one wears her ball gowns with her mucky rubber boots... and she also loves to be at the chicken coop.

She looks every inch a princess on that cute little outfit ... but obviously the ball will have to wait until she checks on the chooks and the cows.

I wish I would have snapped a picture of my girls making mud pies in bridesmaid dresses the other day. I did make them bring the dresses in the house and then they proceeded to make mud pies in their bathing suits and slather mud all over their limbs... I DID get pictures of that. Redneck princesses.

She looks so cute! I remember when my oldest girl would dress up everyday in a ballet or princess type costume. I guess all girls want to be princesses! God bless, rose
