The Princess and The Duck

Here's what happened in my house tonight:
Older daughter says~ 'we are fighting about whether i am a princess or not.'
Younger daughter~ "but you HAVE to be a princess"
Older daughter~ "but I'm not a princess, I don't want to be a princess. Mom?"
Mom~ "In HER mind, and in HER heart, she can make you be a princess. But in YOUR mind, and YOUR heart, you can be, or not be, whatever you choose."
Older Daughter~ *squints eyes, tilts head...
Mom~ "If she calls you a duck, would that make you a duck?"
Older Daughter~ *smiles "no" *walks away happily

*this was exactly the lesson I needed to learn tonight...

Kids make great teachers! ♥♥♥
