The Princess was reading to me last night as I "nitpicked" her hair (which is another story altogether). She was reading Never Too Little to Love, which is about a mouse named Tiny Too-Little who loves a giraffe named Topsy Too-Tall. Tiny Too-Little wants to kiss Topsy Too-Tall, but he can't reach her. So, he has to climb on top of a thimble, a matchbox, a watermelon, etc., etc. Each page adds a new object to the list, and the Princess was reading the list very quickly. Then suddenly she slowed down. I asked her why she slowed down. Trying to explain that she was out of breath, Princess E said, "Because I'm breathtaking." And you know what? She really is.
