|Rebekah Grace getting a little help from an older Princess|
Some of the suggestions from my girls for rules a Princess should live by have been hilarious, triumphant, flops, successes and just plain endearing.
I was visiting a message board recently and was intrigued by the following question a visitor posed, " I have watched many Princess movies and have read quite a few Princess books. Could someone please give me a list of 10 princess rules to live by?"
Well yes mam I believe I can. First and foremost ALL girls are princesses no matter what! This is an important rule my Princesses live by.
Secondly, when Nicki and I were in the beginning stages of writing our book we used our real life experiences with our own Princesses and a lot of our Mommy and Daddy friends stories, ideas and thoughts on raising Princesses. We were told repeatedly that everyone likes a Princess with manners who is well meaning even if sometimes her plans don't quite work out.
So in answer to your question message board visitor, we have a list of very important rules for Princesses of all ages and you are most welcome to check them out in Rebekah Grace The Practically Perfect Princess's first adventure.
Some might think rules for a preschool Princess wouldn't apply to an older Princess. Perhaps, but, when my first Princess was in preschool she came home with a copy of a song that she was learning for a program. I think the world would be a different even happier place if we all followed the simple rules I read in the song.
Play fair * don't hit people * put things back where you found them * clean up your own mess * don't take things that aren't yours * say you're sorry when you hurt somebody * wash your hands before you eat * flush * learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some * take a nap every afternoon * when you go out into the world, watch for traffic, hold hands and stick together!
What are some of the rules your Princess has come up with? We would love to hear about them!
