prince charming and his ladies

Sid came home early at 4 o’clock today.  The children were preoccupied upstairs and didn’t immediately notice his arrival, so for a few minutes, I had him all to myself.

I gave him a big hug and held on, enjoying the peace and simple pleasure of the moment. 

Then the other 2 females in the house found us —

“Daddy!  Daddy!  Daddy!”

“Daddy’s home! Come on, Daddy.  Can I go with yuuuuu?”

In a quietly commanding voice, Sid says, “Wait a minute, girls.  I am hugging My Lady.”

“I’m a lady, Daddy.  Hug me, hug me,” says the 5-year-old.

“You are A lady, but you are not The Lady,” he says.

I’m not a lady,” declares the 3-year-old.  “I’m cute.”

Humility is not Prairie’s strongest attribute.
