Prince Charming and his groupies
Isla brought this crumpled up picture home from school a few weeks back. It was just after Ian had come home. When I first saw it, I asked her who was in the picture.
"That's our family, silly!" she said.
"Really?" I said, starting to understand, but needing more explanation.
And who's that guy in color? Is that a rock star. Is it Roger Daltry, perhaps? "
"Noooo," she said. "That's Daddy. He's a prince."
"And the three girls dressed like princesses? "
"That's Esther, and me and You."
"Of course," I said.
Now that Ian has scolded her for unloading the entire contents of her dress-up box onto the floor of her room, room and mixing it all together with spilled popcorn, I'm wondering if her next family portrait picture will change. He may be a prince but he's not unconditionally charming.
