Hush now, Princess

Somewhere in the space between little and big there is a screaming time. A time when "I WANT SOMEONE TO HELP ME!!!!!" is the repeated phrase...
followed by "I CAN DO IT MYSELF."

Hush now Princess. This day is too beautiful for you to waste away in tears.

(Though your screaming is quite accomplished! My, how you must practice.)

Let's look out across the muted spring and let the soft greens and pinks drip into our hearts. Let's let the icy winter melt away and laugh instead of fuss.

What say you, princess? Can you hush now?


"I WANT SOMEONE TO HELP ME!!!!!!!!!"

followed by....

"I CAN DO IT MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!"

Ah, to be five years old and have a mother who is still trying to learn patience.

Out we go. In our pajamas. To the grocery store.
