A Letter

Dear Princess,
I like you.
Not just because you are my daughter, but because you love girly stuff.
You see, Mommy has been surrounded by dirt, farting noises, cars, trucks, tractors and penis talk for years and honestly, it is getting old.
Now that you are into dancing, frilly skirts, tiaras and all things pink, I feel my life is where it should be.
I can put up with burps and holey socks because I know, once a week, you and I will put on your dancing shoes and I will be able to watch you spin and twirl for an entire hour...uninterrupted.
You and I can take trips to the dancing store to buy crowns, tiaras, tutus and hair bows.
Mommy can take pictures of you in your pretty pink tights and bodysuit.  We can put your hair up in a pretty bun with a fancy shmancy bow and talk about how pretty you look.
You are always so pretty.
But you already know that because you tell me all of the time.
You can pretend you are Belle from Beauty and the Beast because you seem to think that dancing class will transform you into the pretty girl with the yellow dress.
Then we can come home and you can toot and play with tractors until the next dance class.
Love Mommy

Ha! You gotta love a well-rounded, CONFIDENT, girl. I look forward to all the pictures of Princess Belle.

And by the way you happen to have written this letter right about the time my Letters of Intent carnival published. You could totally link up and become all kinds of famous. Well, maybe not the famous part, but you could link up if you want to. No pressure. (But I will totally hunt you down if you don't. Kidding. Kinda. No really- it's just a joke. You don't have to link up if you don't want to. But you do want to, right?)

awwww SWEET!

I really hope one of my daughters will want to do ballet. I think it is such a beautiful and fun activity. :) And very girly. ;)

Awww these sweet ballet slippers - what a memory.

Such a sweet letter.
I am starting to embrace that girly side of my daughter... So different from her brother in many ways.

Awe shucks, you linked up on my blog! My little ol' blog. I feel so honored and humbled to have you join in. Thanks so much for thinking of me!

Love this!! Isn't this THE reason to have a daughter?

If she actually likes dance and really dances when she gets older you will LOVE it. It's an amazing thing to watch your daughter do.

Little girls are so dang fun! They are fun when they get older too, maybe even more fun--just a lot more expensive!
