Mean Princess...

Earlier today I asked AK to pick up some of her toys and take them back to her bedroom where they belong (the front room was a disaster and I've really been trying to get the girls to help out rather than doing all the cleaning myself). Here's the gist of the conversation:

ME: AK, please take these two toys back to your bedroom and put them away.
AK: No mama.
Me: Excuse me? You are not playing with them right now and this is not where they belong. Please put them away.
AK: Hmmph. [also rolls her eyes while grabbing the toys of out my hand. She then proceeds to saunter off down the hallway, swinging hips and all, hitting the toys against the wall while she goes. I hear the clunk as the toys are thrown into the room against the wall, AK then comes running back out].
ME: AK, Did you put your toys away nicely?
AK: No...I throw them.
ME: Is that how we treat our toys?
AK: Mama...I a mean princess today. I don't put away toys because I don't caa-aare [she proceeds to roll her eyes and folds her arms across her chest for emphasis].

Seriously - how did I end up with such a sassy little girl? One who looks so sweet and innocent, but who can have such a spunky, diva-ish side to her. I'm just glad she doesn't act like this all the time....I much prefer my sweet little girl to the "mean princess."

Here's my mean princess...simply adorable, even with so much attitude.
If AK is a mean princess today, then I supposed Roo could be called the nice princess - she has (luckily for me) been quite cheerful and pleasant today...especially with her chocolate chip cookie in hand.


  1. Am I crazy or did the girls get haircuts? I love the princess story. So typical of little girls! Do you guys have any fun plans for the summer? We should get together and play.

  2. This made me laugh so hard and miss those girls so much. Cant wait to see you guys in June!
