Yesterday, I was playing with my two year old cousin, Bea who was fond of the Disney Princesses. So, naturally, she was Cinderella and I was demoted to just being Gusgus, the fat mouse in the movie. So I asked her in my best Gusgus voice. “Cinderelly, what is a Prince Charming?”
She beamed as she twirled around and then went to me and whispered conspirationally. “He’s a boy.”
“A boy!?” I pretended to be shocked. Mice, apparently does not know gender.
“Yes, and he’s tall and handsome and nice and smart and he can dance!”
“Really? Wow, I’d love to meet this prince! Give me his number, maybe
I’d give him a call. So who is this Prince Charming?”
Then Cinderella grinned. “Daddy.”
I smiled and gave her a hug.
So much love…
