Justified in Her Tears….
Today my little 4 year old daughter abruptly started bawling in the living room. That kind of cry only means one thing – number 3 Boy has exerted some form of torture on her.
Number One Boy came carrying her into the kitchen….As in many previous altercations, I tried to get to the bottom of what exactly had happened.
Me: Why did #3 hit you?
Princess: (snubbed up crying) Because I was just trytrytrying to be next to hiiiimmmmm……
#3 (from the living room): I DID NOT HIT HER! (lying)
#1 Boy: Yeah right! She may cry ALL the time but she doesn’t cry about nothing!
Let that one sink in for a minute…Cause ya’ll, there’s lots of reasons for tears from a lone princess in a testasterone filled world. It is quite distressing when your three brothers will not wear pink feather boas, let you sit in their laps while they are trying to beat the final level of Mario Kart, or try out your new body glitter lotion while wearing your favorite plastic
high-heeled shoes. Nevermind how unforgivable it is when they don’t want to watch Barbie as Rapunzel in the car dvd player.
So if she cries a little more than her brothers deem necessary, and if she gets petted a little extra by her momma when no one is looking…well, can you really blame me? :)
I guess #3 finger wasn’t hurt too bad to whack his sister. I guess I am going to have to come to terms with the fact that “my boy” is not perfect. Haha. It’s a good thing R doesn’t have any pink feather boas. The closest thing she has is a pink four wheeler helmet and he has been known to wear that. Some things are just worth it. Haha.
#1 boy said what my Brendan would have said. lol
My poor daughter is also alone in a world of three boys. BUT she gets along great with the boys at school because she’s so used to them. Wait–maybe that’s not a good thing!! :(
Nope, totally justifiable. And she is raising her future body guards =) Preacher man will have help answering the door for future dates, kind of like the wall of testosterone, if you pass this wall then you may go out. (hehhe)
Bless her heart! You just dote on her all you want…she deserves it…having to put up with 3 brothers!
That is priceless! She definitely needs more hugs dealing with all that boy stuff!
And I must say, realestategirl, I just love your comment. It is spoken like a true Southern lady!!
Bless her precious heart! That’s me by the way, I am always crying and its about something!
Bless her bones! That kind of makes me glad that I had 2 sisters!! But then again they did beat up on me too!! LOL!
You know you have the perfect setting for a Mastercard commercial, right? You could use examples of your children…
1 tube of body giltter for the little princess, $6
3 pair of hot pink plastic highheels, $22
3 brightly colored feather boas, $18
Watching the little princess play make-over with her older brothers, PRICELESS!
God love her little heart for putting up with them!
awwwwwwwwwwwww princess, baby girl dont worry you will grow up knowing just how to handle those brothers. I have it the other way round my baby is a boy and let me tell you when those two princess of mine gang up against him he says I am sick of here. love always me
Ducks and Boots has it right on…whenever Mastercard puts it out there again for a new commercial – you have it girl!
The Lord has given her this place in the family for a reason – I am excited to see what comes of it in the next 10-20 years. I guess revenge would say those boys will have ALL girls as children. :)hee hee.
I was the only girl with three brothers, but I was the oldest so rather than cry I was just a little bossy!
And I remember thinking to myself I would never want to have three boys, but God has a sense of humor and here I sit today with three boys…I tell my daughters they are blessed to have each other.
Such a cute and funny post! I am the oldest of three and the only girl. And I now have two boys of my own. So I completely understand living “in a testasterone filled world”. (LOL)
Have a blessed day!!
Can’t wait til they’re teens and someone tries to mess with little sis…#1 to the rescue!!!!!
Aw! I am so ready to have a crying princess in my home I am about to burst!
It is a tough world out there…
However, when Prince Charming shows up, honking from the curb, with 100s of tatoos and piercings, he’ll have quite the welcoming committee. You see, #3 is just practicing his moves on Princess for her future protection.
Or something like that. :)
