The Princess Speaks

Here is an exchange my daughter and I had last night.

Daughter: I want to watch Dora.
Me: Don't you want to watch the game with me?

Daughter: No. I want to see Boots and Dora.
Me: We'll have to do that later, the Lakers are coming on now.

Daughter: I am the princess and I make the rules.
Me: I am the king and this is my castle.

Daughter: Who tells the king what to do?
Me: Everyone.

Daughter: Everyone? But does the king have to listen?
Me: Nope, he is the king and he makes the rules.

Daughter: Ok daddy. I'll watch the game with you.
Me: Thanks sweetheart.

Nice :)

Can you take a picture of you with your crown on?

BTW, are you going to the Israel Festival at Brandeis in 2 weeks?

I can't believe you didn't give into the the whole Dora and boots thing.

Jewish American Princess should trump King anytime. ;)

And she bought into it? The king story?

In our house, I would welcome Dora. However, my fiendish sons taught my daughter how to watch Cartoon Network on the Internet recently. Yuck.

Enjoy it while it lasts. Your reign will end pretty soon, I'm guessing.

No way.


Got to start early, or the inmates will take over.


She is.


I try.


My reign will last forever. She loves waffles. ;)
