|All glorious is the princess within her chamber; her gown is interwoven with gold.|
Psalm 45:13 (NIV)
One of my little darlings brought a suitcase full of dress-up things today. As Em tried on the pretty, pink princess dress, I heard her little friend remark, "I'm already a princess." I smiled. I had heard her daddy say, "Goodbye, Princess," when he dropped her off this morning, and she certainly did look like a princess in her little pink dress and sweater. (It brought to mind this photo taken back in October on one of our preschool field trips.)
The suitcase was sadly lacking in princess clothes, just one frilly dress and an abundance of necklaces, heeled shoes, hats and scarves, and a pair of little pants. I went upstairs to see if by some small miracle we had anything left from my own girls with which to play dress-up. We were in luck. Hannah had saved three little dresses from her early days and they fit the little princesses perfectly. I will now be keeping my eyes open for frilly dresses for little girls to wear.
