Once upon a dream...

I am overwhelmed by the joy that I feel from being a mother. It's amazing to be fascinated by every move that this little delightful person makes. I want to tell everyone about everything she does, such as how she guzzles down her yogurt and looks at me with a yogurt mustache and smiles saying, "That is pretty dewishes (delicious) mom!" Moments like that happen countless times throughout the day. Times when I think my heart can't possibly grow any bigger and hold any more love because it's already bursting, it still grows. And still grows more.
Tonight after dinner we were all enjoying some ice cream together on the couch. Caroline had assigned us all crowns to wear as we dined on our royal treat. When we had finished, she got up and walked over to the chair and started to lie down. Then she said, "Kiss me," and covered her eyes by draping her arm over them. Adam replied, "Oh, are you a princess?" Keeping her eyes covered she nodded her head.
So Adam, or Prince Charming, gave Caroline a kiss and she sat up and smiled. (I was crying by this time because I was laughing so hard!) She gave her prince the biggest hug. Then she put on her hat and stated, "I'll put my hat on now for true love's kiss."
She reclined, yet again, and waited patiently for true love's kiss. When she sat up again, she took Adam to our room and started singing, "I know you I walked with you once upon a dream.." It's just not hard to see why these little ones have us smitten.

Adam's crown was a lovely feather headdress that Caroline and I made yesterday for the Thanksgiving season
Waiting patiently for 'true love's kiss'
(The filming starts with her saying "the look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam...")

You hear so much about teaching young girls to not need a prince charming and to work hard and become something. Yes, there is truth to that but I love the fairy tales and I adore watching my girls make believe that they are princesses. Caroline is a beautiful princess! I got my prince, as did you with Adam, and I hope I can show my girls that true love does make life a little sweeter.

That is way too cute!

Here And Happy! said...! Is she the sweetest little thing in the world????!!! I can't wait to see these performances again IN PERSON. I hope the Pea has some pretty impressive attributes up her sleeve--she's going to need them to keep pace with the beautiful Princess Caroline! (We do not doubt The Pea--she'll come equipped :0})

Can Caroline be any cuter??!!! She so darling and I can't wait to see it all in person. I hope she makes me a crown too so I can play along. I'm so glad that you are documenting all this for the future. You are such great parents. It's obvious because of the how cute Caroline is. They say that a child is happy when they sing all the time. So Caroline is one happy child.
