My Pretty Pretty Princess
We finally got a chance to have Pretty's real birthday party with her friend, Andrea. They have tons of mutual friends, so it just made sense to have their party together. We had scheduled to have the party at the local children's museum, but due to a series of unfortunate events, we had to move it to a nearby park. Really, though, it didn't matter one bit. The kids all had a great time playing together and eating princess cupcakes and running around like the banchees that they are.
Pretty was delighted to realize that virtually every present had something to do with making her into a princess. She got a princess gown, princess jewelry, princess "make-up" (which is just bubble gum chap stick), princess shoes, princess nail polish, and anything else anyone could think of that would help make a princess all that she should be. I think that, when all was said and done, she had something like three tiaras...and wanted to wear them all.
When we got home, she immediately needed to put on all of her princess stuff and go show La La and her friend, Ms. P. Honestly, even if she were wearing nothing more than a brown paper bag and had dirt and leaves in her hair, she would always be my Pretty Pretty Princess.
