For no other reason, I suppose, than because she could, my adorable three-year-old stood up on her chair during dinner, lifted her dress above her head and yelled, “Underwear!!!”
This could be my daughter in a few years, red hair, blue eyes and all. Minus the wings, of course. – “Take the Fair Face of Woman”, by Sophie Gengembre Anderson. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Note that there is no mention in this description of underwear.
Knowing that my girls enjoy princesses and fairy books, I figured I was doing some parenting at its finest when I told her solemnly, “Good princesses and fairies don’t show people their underwear.”
“I’m not a princess or a fairy,” she replied and lifted her dress once more.
What a little lady I’m raising! I assure you she doesn’t get that from me.
