Already a Princess

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.


  1. That's such a sweet story. She'll always remember her pet name from her dad. :)

    Martha...prayed for you and your allergies this morning. :)

  2. Thanks, Betsy. I think I actually had some kind of virus to go along with the allergies. I'm feeling much better today.

  3. I have one princess-minded daughter and one who passes on the title. ;)
    I hope you are feeling better. Maybe today's rain will make some of the stuff *stick* down and slow down the inhalation.

  4. One year for Christmas, Mom gave my kids dress up things. There were an abundance of gaudy beads,hats, shoes, etc. Even Allen was little enough to get in on the deal and appreciate it.
