“Hey Mommy,” said princess, “I have something to say!”
I was thinking about something while I was at play
I think that the book that we read was wrong
and they’ve been telling it that way, all along!
We have to change the story mom, yes please
cause look mom, I’ll tell you, it’s all of these
her finger pointed to the pictures in the book
she looked at me with a confused sort of look.
How does a princess ride her new bike?
With a fluffy ol’ dress, it doesn’t seem right!?
and those pointy shoes, just wouldn’t work too!
They would get stuck in the muck, when they play like I do
How does a princess have any fun?
It doesn’t seem right mom, you said that I’m one
I am a princess, and when I go play
I wear these fun clothes and my hair flies away
into the wind, it’s not in a crown
It flies all around when I jump up and down
on my trampoline out in the back yard
how do they wear that stuff when they play so hard?
princesses don’t play in that silly ol’ book
see right there mom? just take a look
I think that those books are silly, you see?
a princess is someone like you and like me
A princess is someone who just wants to be
happy inside and laughing like we.
Sparkles are fun and look really shiny
but they are itchy, scratchy and not very comfy.
I like my tanks, my shorts, and my tees
When you ask me to wear them, I always say please!
Real princesses don’t wear that scratchy stuff
She folded her arms and said with a puff.
and all of my friends are princesses too!
Can we write a new story about the things that we do?
Playing with dirt, toys, dolls and pretend
That is what my princesses do, ask my friends
A princess is something that lives deep inside
As she stretched out her arms so far and so wide
Look at me mom, I am a princess, now don’t you see
A princess is someone like you and like me!
How real can you get? My daughter is the most beautiful thing in the world. She was painted just for me. God knew my flavor and made sure he gave me exactly what my eyes wanted to see. I love her to heaven in back again.
My husband always calls her princess. This little poem is exactly what we have. A real princess. One that plays, has wonderful and powerful opinions, great imagination and the gentlest soul I have ever met. She is a powerful force to be reckoned and when she expresses herself. I love listening to all of her special little thinks. Her mind is so perfect and so beautiful.
God is good. I encourage all of you to carry on the great fight princesses! We are all soldiers of God. We grind, we get dirty, we play hard and we constantly strive to do God’s will.
Proverbs 31:25 – She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.
I love this verse in the Bible. I think this is a great description of what we princesses truly are. What do you think? Have your daughters said the same thing about what a princess really is?
