The next few days were filled with personal telephone conversations between the Princess and her daddy as she wanted to make sure he completely understood the necessity of the visit to the Boppy-Pop Store. And yesterday her daddy returned but not before our homeschool Valentine's Day party at Jungle Jump. After a couple hours of jumping on the huge inflatables, we broke for lunchtime, a time which also included a Valentine craft and a Valentine exchange. Much to the Princess' delight, the valentines accompanied many sweet treats, including boppy-pops (unbeknownst to her, another one of her subjects (me!) had recently purchased a 300-piece bag of Dum Dums). From Jungle Jump, the whole crew of kids and moms headed to our house for Michael's birthday celebration. There was, of course, cake and goody bags with more boppy-pops (how else is a mother to get rid of 300 Dum Dums?).
Perhaps it was all of the excitement of yesterday as well as the multiple boppy-pops the Princess snuck in her mouth. Or maybe she was just so happy to have her daddy back on Valentine's Day. Or maybe a little of both. Whatever, the case, it slipped her mind to inquire of her subject about his trip to the Boppy-Pop Store. This morning, however, the Princess was quick to remind her daddy of his promise. In her little mind, I would suppose she thinks it really took her daddy 4 days to select just the right kind of boppy-pop for someone of such royal blood as herself. And he didn't disappoint: he presented to her the most royal of lollipops: the Tootsie Pop.
And, no, I don't feed my children lollipops for breakfast, but I can't help it that she slept until 9:00. And I can't help it if she hadn't eaten any of her breakfast yet when the thought popped into her mind that she hadn't yet received her lollipop. So, yes, I guess that, although I'd prefer to think she had a lollipop for snack, she in fact had a lollipop for breakfast.
