my little princess

March 2, 2011

On Sunday afternoon, having finally kicked the flu and coughs, we went outside to celebrate daffodils and light jackets.

While Don did a little yard work, Jack asked me to help him take over a small make-believe kingdom in the woods.

“You be the king,” he said. “I’ll be the princess.”

And I took up my pinecone sceptre, happy to be playing in Jack’s world, where boys and girls and titles are all different things, and a king or a princess is just another important job, “like a nurse or a teacher or an astronaut or Judy at Home Depot.”

P.S. Speaking of non-judgmental parenting – after a rinse-and-dry, I’m rocking the pee shoes today. Word, Jana!

    Oh that we could all raise up a world where titles aren’t boxes, and no one feels trapped, and everyone, everyone has permission to wear a tiara.

    Good for you! His imagination probably grew by leaps and bounds that day, and every day that his parents encourage his free play and role experimentation.

    He looks quite Bieber-ish in that photo, and I mean that in a good way. Absolutely adorable!! And I’m all for rocking the pees shoes. Good times.

    Such precious moments. (Just another job indeed. May we all have playful scepters and imagination!)
