When will this story end? It has been going on for weeks! Let me explain. We have Netflix and have been renting the various Disney movies for Buggy. So far she's seen Aladdin, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty (her favorite), Ice Age, and Fox and the Hound. She's into everything princess and toy story right now.
I was unloading the dishwasher and we were talking about favorite colors. She told me hers was pink and asked me what mine was. I told her that I have two. I really like orange and green. She told me that I liked orange the best. :) Then she went on to tell me that she likes pink because it's a "girl" color, and orange was a "boy" color. (Mind you, she'll only be 3 in a few weeks!) I tried my best to explain that people can like any color they want to, that there are no "boy or girl" colors. I gave a few examples of people that like colors that aren't stereotypical. Anyway, in our house, for the last two weeks I have been a Princess. Buggy is a prince, and daddy is a dragon. It was fun for the first two days. Now, I can't even talk to daddy without calling him dragon, or talk about him to other people unless I refer to him as dragon. Buggy, excuse me, prince takes this very serious. (I wonder if she continues this game at school, or if it stops at the doors.) Before this she would pretend to be a mermaid or Sleeping Beauty, but just for a day. We'd have to make sure to tell the mermaid (or who ever she was) good night and call her by that name. We have never had the whole family be something for so long.
I asked her last night after supper when I could be mommy again. That I missed being mommy and I want daddy back too. Buggy just looked at me like I was crazy. She protested that I wasn't mommy and was in fact a princess. But, that I could be mommy in the kitchen when I make supper.
Has any of this happen to any of you? What did you do? I just want the "game" to end and be mommy, Buggy, and daddy again. Any ideas?
