So Maddie is pretty much in the princess phase now (along with the WHY phase which started 3 days ago). She likes princess dresses and musicals and pink and ruffles etc. etc. etc.
John has a Little Mermaid CD in the car for her that she insists gets played every time we go somewhere. She also insists that I sing along.
The other night I was tucking her in and she requested the Part of Your World song as her lullaby. I began and couldn't get more than one sentence into the song without being corrected.. and I had to stifle my laughter the rest of the way through the song. My first error?
Me: "Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?"
Maddie: "No, meat."
Me: "Meat? Oh, sorry. Look at this stuff. Isn't it meat? Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?"
I sang the rest of the song imagining I was singing about an underwater cave full of sausages and hams and roasts and steaks a hundred deep.
