Prince Charming and his groupies


Isla brought this crumpled up picture home from school a few weeks back. It was just after Ian had come home. When I first saw it, I asked her who was in the picture.

"That's our family, silly!" she said.

"Really?" I said, starting to understand, but needing more explanation.

And who's that guy in color? Is that a rock star. Is it Roger Daltry, perhaps? "

"Noooo," she said. "That's Daddy. He's a prince."

 "And the three girls dressed like princesses? "

"That's Esther, and me and You."

"Of course," I said.

Of course.

Now that Ian has scolded her for unloading the entire contents of her dress-up box onto the floor of her room, room and mixing it all together with spilled popcorn,  I'm wondering if her next family portrait picture will change. He may be a prince but he's not unconditionally charming.

So thankful that you are old enough to know who he is...
You can't be too sure and I certainly forget how old I am sometimes. Sorry about your computer.

it is very Roger Daltry! Maybe Isla is channeling some 70's rock idol in that artwork? ;)
