The Little Princess

Today I was having a lovely little conversation with my resident princess while she was eating spoonfuls of peanut butter. It went something like this:

Me: Mommy didn't have a very fun day. I had a long class I had to go to. And I just want someone to want my book.

The Little Princess: What book?

Me: Remember the book I wrote? The one about Hatshepsut, the princess Pharaoh from Egypt?

(Note: The Little Princess is rather keen on Egypt ever since she got to ride a camel at the Pyramids.)

The Little Princess: Yes.

Me: Well, I'm waiting for someone to say they want my book.

The Little Princess: (takes my cheeks in her hands and pulls me close to her peanut-buttery face) Oh, Mommy. Someone will want your book someday.

Man, I hope she's right! And I hope it's someday soon!

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Munchkins are great for reassurance and pick-me-ups. :)

And yes, Stephanie, someone WILL want your book! I know I do!

Amalia T. said...

That is SUPER cute!

I'm with LT and the Little Princess. Someone will want your book :)

Stephanie Thornton said...

L.T.- Yeah, she's the best pick-me-up ever. I think I'll keep her!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Amalia- You snuck in there! Thanks- I sure hope so!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Oh, she's a worthy little princess! And she's right. Your book will find its home.

Stephanie Thornton said...

Tricia- I'll tell her you said so! And thanks!

Josin L. McQuein said...

Iz jellous of princesses that get to ride camels and go to the pyramids.

(Other than that, listen to the munchkin - EVERYONE loves Egypt. The ones who say they don't are either lying or haven't figured it out yet.)

That is an awesome photo, btw. And I'm with Josin about being jealous about said trip to Egypt.

Aubrie said...

Oh this is so cute! And your daughter is so pretty. Love the necklaces :)

Guinevere said...

Aw, what a cute story! And I believe she's right... I'm very much looking forward to reading your novel. I'll even break from my usual library habit and buy a copy, I promise! :)

Stephanie Thornton said...

Josin- I've always thought everyone loves Egypt, but then it occurred to me that I might be biased. :)

Matt- Yeah, we drag the princess all over the world, whether she likes it or not!

Aubrie- Thanks! The girl certainly likes to accessorize!

Guinevere- Thanks! I promise to buy a copy of your book too. We just need to hurry up and get published, eh?

AWWWW!!!! She knows what she's talking about *nods*

Libbie H. said...

Aww! What a sweet little kidlet!

Somebody will indeed want your book some day. Patience and perseverance!

Vicki Rocho said...

Your daughter is adorable! I remember when mine were that age and *had* to wear every piece of jewelry they owned to be princessy enough.

Keep the faith! Your book will find a home someday!

Your daughter is beautiful, the perfect princess. And a great cheerleader. She's right, you know, someone will want your book.

She's adorable! And, I'm sure, right. :)
