Toddler Tuesday: Lessons From My Dragon

Max: Dragons eat stars. That's why they breathe fire.


Max: I'm a dragon. You're my princess.
Me: What's Daddy?
Max: He's an ogre.

Thought so.

Max: (adjusting my plastic headband so that it fits like a circlet) Mommy, do you have a real crown?
Me: (pausing) Yes, I do.
Max: Thought so. Go get it.

I rummage through the closet to find an eighteen year old tiara and present it to my son.

Max: Let me put it on you. (He crowns me.) That's better.  I love you, Princess Mommy.
Me: I love you, too, my little dragon.

Who says being Prom Queen doesn't have real life applications?


  1. I need to get you a new crown, happen to have a few in my closet (from Party Galaxy). Love the post, there is a story there!

  2. Bring on the crowns! Max is really into Shrek right now. He asked me if I had a yellow crown like Princess "Biona."

  3. Princess Mommy. :] Haha, Max sounds so adorable! Thanks for sharring.

  4. Yes, Gabi, he CAN be adorable. Thank you.
