Princess Balboa

Earlier this week, Ryan got into the van, full of a story about how:

"Kyle pushed me on the playground, and I fell down.  I can't believe it, he just pushed me, and I got hurt.  I told the teacher.  He had to go sit by the wall."

All in the breathless cadence of a seven year old, the sentence was out in fifteen seconds.

I'm driving away, and I hear Audrey start to babble, talking to herself, me, who knows?

I catch this:  "....hurt Ryan...and I'm gonna go to 'chool, and I'm gonna find Kyle, and I'm gonna push him down...I push him down, and pour spiders on his face." 

??? What? <grin>

"Sweetie, what are you talking about?"

"That boy, he's mean, he hurt Ryan.  I push him down."

I see.  "And the spiders?"

"Spiders are 'cary.  I 'care him."

All this time, we joke about Audrey not dating when she's older, with all the men in her life. 

Here she is, protecting one of them.    It's probably a good thing she doesn't know what that kid looks like.

My three year old, not the Princess we think she is, but Defender of the Realm.

I kinda like that.

And should there be any doubt that she is abandoning the girliness, this also has happened, over the last week or so...

I parked the van, and got out, opening the door behind mine, because that is where her carseat is.

No Audrey.

What the.....?

There she is, in the passenger seat.  The visor is down, so the mirror is exposed.  She's checking her lippy.  (*kid lippy*) I do a double take, as she leans in, closer to the mirror, and wipes the excess that is outside her lipline off her face. 

"Now, I'm ready,"  she announces.

I don't know where she got that from.

Aww, what a sweet Little Sister :)

And yes, she'll have no chance in
dating with all the men in her life... lol...

Oh goodness... She is going to be a
killer with the kid lippy :)

And just know this, Rowan does the
same thing with the excess... I so
don't know where she gets that from
either ;)

OMG - TOOO FUNNY!  She cracks me up!  My princess had to go put on lippy before she went to grandma's this evening - told me we were going out and we needed to look nice - where DO they get it from?!!

I loved this!  I can remember my daughter jumping in front of her little brother a little wonder woman..., with hands on her hips stareing at me defiantly, while I was trying to discipline his little  2 year old behind about something....she is 12 now, and his is 8, and though she would never admit, he is her best friend, (and biggest fan)...

Very cute.

All of you guys here in j-land are gonna have to stop it with these little girl stories. Almost makes me want one...

My husband is on me all the time about having another. I keep telling him he is crazy. I have two of the boys on my side. One is on his  side with wanting another. Hummm... I just don't think it is something I really want to do. But hearing all these girlie stories, kinda make me think twice. LOL

See, I am just wishy washy.
