Brayden : "Hi mom, I'm just a princess."
Me: "Oh, you mean a 'prince' since girls are princesses.'
Brayden : "No mom, I just want to be a princess."
Me (slightly agitated but not showing it) : "Well, don't you want to be a prince with a big sword?'
Brayden : "No, I just want to be a princess mom."
Me : "Well, okay but I sure do know that girls are princesses and boys are princes. Or...maybe you could be a king?! " (getting more agitated but trying to sound excited instead of annoyed.)
Brady : "I just want to be a princess."
Me : "How about you be a princess tonight and then tomorrow or the next day mom will try to make you a crown for a prince - okay?"
Brayden (thinking very seriously about the proposal) : "Umm...okay...that would be so nice."
Me: "Good. Now, why don't you go get ready for bed okay?"
Brady : "Alright mom" ....he takes off in his flip flops only to trip on them...
Me : "Uh oh...you tripped on your flip flops!"
Brady : "Oh...these are just my glass slippers mom."
I kept my mouth shut....grrrrrr....
