Princess & the Queen

Knowing that our family was growing we spent a  lot of time talking to each of our kids, making sure that they fully  understood what was happening. We wanted each of them to  be as welcoming and as understanding as possible when the new little Intruder made their way into our lives.

During one of these talks I asked our 3 year  old –  “If we have a baby girl are you still going to be our princess?”   Of course she said yes, she didn’t want to give up being the  princess of the family…. Trying to figure out how to make things ‘fair’ I  asked her if the new baby could be the queen if she was a girl.  Our 3 year old princess jumped all over that! If  she could still hold onto her title and still let the baby have a  special title too then that would be great! Of course at 3  she doesn’t understand the hierarchy that goes with being a princess or  a queen… One of the visitors asked her: “So if you are the princess and your sister is the queen, what does that  make Mommy?” Very sweetly she replied: “Happy!”  *warm fuzzies*
