Frequently for bedtime stories, Lydia likes me to make up (and tell her) stories about their adventures. Usually the girls are princesses and everything has to be yellow for Lyd, pink for Kayla, and blue for Emma. Last night I changed it up a bit:
"Once upon a time there were three little girls: Lydia, Makayla and Emma. They wanted to go to the aquarium, so they got in their pink carriage. The carriage was pulled by a yellow horse, a pink horse and a blue horse. Max, the driver, took them up the big hill towards the aquarium."
"Wait, Mom! That's not right!" She was obviously not OK with my story.
"What's the matter?"
"Mom, only princesses can ride in carriages to the aquarium. We MUST be princesses."
They certainly are not ordinary girls!
