Twins have it made, always someone to play with and are sort of like an old married couple.
As The Littles have discovered the joys of having an automatic plus one, an interesting pattern has developed. As we read many fairy tales, they bring them to life with Little J always the boy character role. They are Wendy and Peter Pan, Aladdin and Jasmine, Sleeping Beauty and Prince, Beauty and the Beast. I suggests that they both play princesses or two girl characters. Though Little J would love to be a girl character, her chief concern is a complete set. Obviously, in her three-year old mind, a princess with no prince is incomplete.
How do they so intrinsically pick up on this prince and princess thing? Before they ever watched a princess movie, they knew they wanted to be a beautiful princess with a man to pursue them.
I don’t know if I should be concerned our not. This morning Little J (shirtless because I could not produce a princely enough shirt) pampers the princess, Little A. She does not seemed bugged that Little A is almost always the female role.
Actually, Little J is the sweetest prince, hugging and caring for her princess, following her around, with lots of hugs, saying things like, “I love you princess and I will come for you!” “Dance with me, Princess”.
Today, after I suggested they both be princesses, Little J said, “but where are we going to find two princes to marry us?” (Little A had a solution, Obie and Tait ;)).
What would you do?
