Caitlin has been sick since Saturday, but seems to be fully recovered as she was fighting with baby sister yesterday over who was going to pretend cook in their toy kitchen. (Thankfully she tested negative for strep throat on Monday.) Many cinematic classics have been viewed during her recuperation …cinematic classics such as Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper and My Little Pony: The Quest of the Princess Ponies. Cough, cough.
The My Little Pony DVDs are nightmarishly bad, but Caitlin loves them and unfortunately this means the My Little Pony theme song is stuck in my brain for the duration of winter, which in and of itself is a form of excruciating mental torture. The Barbie DVDs are much more tolerable. Good Lord, did I just admit that?
After the curtains finally closed on our Barbie Princess and the Pauper movie marathon in our den yesterday, Caitlin twirled into the kitchen last night wearing a play crown, bejeweled with dazzling purple and pink gems. She looked at me and curtsied.
“Oh, good evening Princess Caitlin! How are you?” I asked.
“Mommy, I am not a princess…I am the queen!”
