Do you remember this picture?
It’s from this post, the one where the Princess was devastated that she wasn’t getting a sister.
For a while we had come to an understanding. She was going to be our one and only Princess and she really seemed to be on board with that plan. She began to see the benefits to being our only daughter. Girl’s time was always going to be just her and I. She wouldn’t have to share any of us with a sister. However, with a little time she started thinking again about how nice it would be to have a sister. So this morning she broached the subject with me again.
“Can I have a sister?”
As it turns out, she had decided it’s not fair that there are 3 males in the house and only 2 females. We are out numbered and because of that we have a serious problem. Once again I had to explain to her that it just wasn’t going to happen no matter how hard she pleaded with me.
After going through it over and over again, I decided to approach it at a new angle.
What if sometime in the not too distant but not quite yet future we get a girl puppy? Would that work?
Not only did I get a yes, but my Princess leaped off the bed into my arms.
I was so happy to have moved on, that I had no idea the can of worms I had just opened.
Now the Princess would like to pinpoint the exact date we will be getting a puppy!
