We just looked at the Storypeople More than a Princess print that is hanging on Grace’s wall. I finally tired of Grace swanning around in her Cinderella dress and heels and jewelry and tiara and said, “Gracie, you are much more than a princess – they just don’t have a name for it yet on earth. And, you don’t need the tiara to make you a princess.” She responded by ripping off her tiara (which she was wearing with her pjs) and putting it on the table, then turning to me with a radiant smile. I burst into tears.
As we were lined up on the couch to read the Berenstain Bears, I took this picture. Gracie said: “Hey! All three Russells!” and then she quickly corrected herself: “I mean, all Eldredges!”
And, cue another round of tears.
