all things princess

all things princess, originally uploaded by tommiea1.

A little background: It is very dry here in KY. So dry that Livi and I have taken to using "body butter" on our legs. Livi has one flavored butter cream frosting. It does have a super sweet smell. This morning as we were getting ready for her Student of the Week at school, we slathered it on as usual. I can't like dry itchy legs!

So, the above self-declared Princess is student of the week: meaning she got to bring a few special things to school. I went to her class to read her favorite story: The Princess Primer

So today afterwards her teacher mentioned she got her "crayon pulled"<----a time out for something. Apparently self-declared Princess took a swing at Susie (name changed for the protection on others). Miss J asked her why.....she had no answer. But for someone who talks to a box of rocks, I am surprised she didn't tell her why, even if it was to say that the other girl hit her first.

As we were walking to Will's class, I asked her why she hit Susie.

Livi: "She was being mean."

Me: "How was she being mean?" <----very skeptical about her next responce.

Livi: "She wouldn't smell me."

Me: very confused...."Smell you?"

Livi: "My legs...my Butter Cream Frosting legs."

Me: "You hit her because she wouldn't smell your legs?"

Livi: "Yes, wasn't that mean of her?"

Me: "Girl, we need to talk!" It took everything I could do not to laugh. I don't think that little lesson was in The Princess Primer

"She wouldn't smell me'-- I am busting up laughing. Seriously, that is the funniest thing I've heard all week.

This girl is a firecracker! :)

Janet said...

ROFLMAO! I hate when I smell so good to myself and other people won't smell me, too!

Lisa- She is a handful! She is three in a four year old class. So she is also tiny compared to the other kids. But her verbal skills, as well as a year of Montessori, they let her go into the four year old class. She turns 4 in Oct, but you would think she was going on 13!

Janet- I am almost scared for the teen years!

Livi: 1. Susie: 0.

Just when I think she can't get any cuter or have any more sass, she proves me wrong. :)

Wow, that's hilarious! Now I'm wondering what butter cream frosting would smell like...

First of all that must smell DEE...licicous! I couldn't have seen that one coming. It was mean of her- sounds more like a queen bee than a princess. lol.

She is a riot. I'm sure there is never a dull moment around your house. You are going to appreciate that she is so sure of herself as she gets older.
