Sometimes I Think She Really Is A Princess

Anna is obsessed with all things princess. Anything pink, frilly, or shiny is of endless interest to her. The sight of a dancer on a tv competition show for instance, or a bride, will cause Anna to stop whatever she is doing and gasp with reverence and announce to everyone in the room that "she's a princess!" Sometimes when she is acting up we have an exchange similar to the following:

Me: Anna, please stop jumping on the couch.
Anna: But Mommy, I'm a princess.

Last night she surveyed an assortment of crackers arranged on a plate before her and excitedly chose a multi-grain seeded one. Because, she explained, it had sparkles.
