This past Thursday Jenn had to work very late, so I assumed Mr. Mom duties with Raelyn. During her nightly bath we had the following exchange:

Me: Raelyn?
Rae: Yes
Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Rae: A princess!
Me: Really? What do princesses do?
Rae: They dance!
Me: *grinning ear to ear*
Rae: *Smile*
Rae: *Laugh*
Rae: *Splash*

It’s moments like those that make me wish I could fulfill her every wish and fantasy and desire. I know I can’t shield her from hurt and heartache and life forever, but part of me wants her to stay two-and-a-half forever.

I love you Raelyn, my little princess!
