Mostly Wordless Wednesday: The One And Only Time She Was A Fairy Princess


She was three
And I talked her into it
She was adorable
Beautiful
Everything a fairy princess should be
Except the crown was scratchy
And the wings didn't really work to make her fly
And the dress was too pink and sparkly
Not deep red or vivid purple or black like night
And she didn't get to have a sword
Or a bow or a dagger or a lightsaber
"I can't do anything in this," she told me
"Sure you can," I answered, "you can be a princess"
She heaved a sigh, and gave me a smile
And let me take the picture
Then she lost the crown and the wings
And she's never looked back
