When we go on vacation or I get sick, TubaDad buys me a stack of trashy magazines and I read myself into happy reality-free oblivion. I always gravitate toward those “Stars They’re Just Like Us” columns and crack up at the captions they come up with. Lately I’ve noticed I get more pics of the girls wearing princess garb than regular clothes, so here’s our own “Princesses They’re Just Like Us” article. Heh.
They sew and do crafts!
They wear dark glasses and look fab even when they’re tired:
They dance with their girlfriends (who are princesses too):
They play board games:
They go grocery shopping for junk food:
They have trouble getting into cars gracefully with those huge skirts:
They sneak the dough while they’re baking cookies:
They drink plain water from the fridge door:
They track how much exercise they’re getting:
They eat out at chain restaurants:
They like the occasional wild party:
Rock on little princesses -- it’s good to know you’re just like us regular folks underneath those glittery gowns and sparkly crowns.
PS: Ree ended up missing the entire week of school because of this cold, and Ro did a double fist pump when she came down with her own fever and got to stay home and watch movies and snuggle on Thursday and Friday. We went to the doctor’s office yesterday because the low-grade fever was hanging on so long, and they both got the all clear for lungs and ears, so hopefully we’re a go for school on Monday. We’ll see.
