Val, telling me a story of her own invention: ...and then there was a store with all the princess dresses in it, like Snow White and Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella and then Mommy bought Val a princess dress! AAAAAAAAND there was a prince *giggle*
Me: Oh really? Did you say there was a prince too?
Val, grinning: Yeah. *pause* Mom, what's 'fall in love'?
Me: It's when you love someone SOOOOOOOOOOO much and you think they are so wonderful and you think about them all the time. When you were born Daddy and I fell in love with you. And I fell in love with Daddy before we got married.Val: Oh. I want to fall in love.Me: Well sweetie, usually people fall in love when they're older.
Val, scowling: But I want to fall in love RIGHT NOW.
Thanks, Disney. Thanks a whole lot.
Fortunately Val is still planning to marry Daddy, despite my insistence he's already taken.
