Second-hand Princess.

Our library offers themed kits that they put together filled with books, DVD's, stuffed animals, etc.  Part of our weekly library story-time ritual is checking out a kit.  There is much melting down on the part of a certain 5 year-old if we "forget" to check out a kit.

Sometimes I choose to "forget" because my hands are already too full of car seats and purses and coats and other library bags.  Those kits get heavy.  I've escaped the library kit-free only a time or two, it takes some serious distractions to work one over on Annie.

(Another reason I "forget" is because I have a major brain malfunction when it comes to returning things to the library ON TIME.  These kits are $1/day if they're late.  Pre-tty steep if you ask me.  I KNOW from first-hand experience.)

Today was the Princess kit.  Why this kit comes with a purple feather boa is beyond me, but to Annie, it certainly enhanced the princess-ness that was HERSELF.  She was a library princess all day long: shedding boa, broken crown, bent wand.  More like a second-hand princess, but adorable nonetheless:).

Sometimes, I get awfully giddy about the girlishness circulating through our home.  It's a delightful contrast to these rough and tumble boys.

If only her wand could work a little magic in my laundry room!  I'm hoping this embarrassing disclosure pushes me to tackle the issue.  Can you tell I've avoided it for, um, about 3 months?  I'm pretty good at pretending something isn't there.  Denial.  Sometimes we all need a little to get through life:).

You're laundry room looks like our office. Nice to know I'm not the only one putting off the task.
