Before I begin this, I want to make it absolutely clear that in no way, shape or form am I hinting at, trying to get, wanting sympathy for, or in any other way fishing for an award. I DO NOT NEED ONE. I just had to share this little tidbit!
I was over at Elasticwaistbandlady's blog, reading more of her older posts. She is one hilarious woman! In the middle of reading a post, Princess walks over and spies Elastic's "Nice Matters" award. Not surprising that Princess loved it, due to her love of all things girly, flowery and pink. I'm sure that the flowers stuffed in a shoe reminds her of Cinderella's lovely slipper. From the moment she wakes up It takes her no more than 2 minutes to get into a dress and her dollar-store plastic pink dress-up shoes which she clatters around in most of the day. Have I mentioned that she's two years old? Anyway, here's our conversation:
Princess: (Quick intake of breath at the lovely sight, then pointing) "Mommy, Mommy, it's so
beautiful, it's so beautiful!"
Me: (Pointing to the one I just know she's gazing at) "That one?"
Princess: (Rapturously) "Yeeesss."
Princess: "It's so beautiful!"
Me: "Yes, it is, isn't it? You love the flowers, don't you."
Princess: "Yes..."(then said in a grave voice) "Mommy, you don't have one."
Me: (Smiling wryly) "Yes honey, I sure don't."
I know that I've started blogging not that long ago, and I don't even really know how awards work. I'm just happy that there are people out there that read and comment on my posts! That's gratification enough. You guys are awesome. I just never thought my 2 year old daughter would be the first one to point out my lack of awards!
