Maiden: Mom, we need a girl baby. That One (pointing to Prince Charming) pulls hair.

Mom: So you want a girl baby and a boy baby?

Maiden: No, take him to the doctor. The doctor will give us a girl baby and keep him.

Mom: But he's your brother. You love him. We don't take babies back.

Maiden: That One pulls hair. We need a girl one.

(I am getting a little worried. I don't know if I should be more concerned that she has clearly distanced herself by not calling him by his name, or that she has obviously given this an enormous amount of thought.)

Mom: No, we will keep him forever. God gave him to us. We love him and he loves us.

Later in the day when I was changing Prince Charming's diaper....he was screaming and squirming, trying to get away.

Maiden: See, I told you. That One doesn't like you. We should take him back to the doctor and get a girl one. She will like you. Girls don't pull hair.

Who wouldn't pull hair trying to escape this "grip of love"? Sorry Maiden, I don't think trading the baby in for a new model will solve your problem.


  1. Poor Prince Charming is getting his poor cheeks wonder he pulls her hair!

    I think maybe you should give her another sister and keep the brother!

  2. Oh, that was so cute! I see a child's book there!

  3. Joshua walked by while I was reading your blog and asked in a worried voice,"What is she doing to him?" LOL

  4. Ha ha ha ha!!!
