I have found myself saying "no" or "not right now" and "maybe later" a lot lately. Life has been moving ahead at warp speed the past few months, especially and I forget that to the kids, life moves a tad slower & certainly with much less stress.
As I was packing, Gianna found some old silk nightgowns that I haven't seen in forever.
This sparked her imagination to life. She decided Cinderella was coming for a birthday party.
She dressed up.
She ushered Cinderella to the door.
She entertained her guest with good conversation & reminisced about how Cinderella came to her 5th birthday.
And eventually we had birthday cake ice cream to celebrate.
Because this was something I could say yes to. And why not? She had a great time playing dress up & entertaining her favorite princess.
I need to remember these little things bring these little ladies the most joy.
