A few days ago, The Princess and I were enjoying some time in the yard. I forget what we were doing, but I suspect it was the usual “time in the yard” activities. I was most likely inspecting the plants, and The Princess was probably swinging.
I decided to head in, and I mentioned “Let’s go in and see what Mommy and Little Dude are doing.”
The Princess replied with, “Nope. I’m going to the belly button…the belly button store. To get a new belly button.”
I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I laughed and headed in.
Such a great comment. Out of nowhere.
Does this mean she’s growing up, and her imagination and humor are taking shape? Or is she’s holding on to the innocence of early childhood and talking nonsense?
She knew it was funny. I think she was telling a joke.
She loves going to school now. And she’s learning a lot in the first month. All signs are pointing to The Princess doing a great job growing up.
And tonight was the next step towards adulthood; no more booster seat. She made the request, so we made it happen.
We’ll see how it goes, but I think it’s in storage until Little Dude needs it.
