The Princess Bribes

Our playdate started out relatively tame. "Hummingbird" gave me my milk, we listened to music, played with my dolls, and had a snack. Then all heck broke loose!
It all began when I dressed up like a fairy princess. Harmless enough, right?

But Hummingbird said that she was also a princess and required the power of a magic wand!
I told her, "be careful fair maiden, you know not your powers!!!" But she took it and ran away, into the night! As you can see, I tried to remain calm.

So I stole her tiara.

Finally, she agreed that I was indeed the fairest in the land and gave back my wand.

But then she said, "SUCKER!!!" and stole it back. I said, "look girly, you may be cute, but there's only enough room on this block for one princess. And that position has been taken!" She said, "whatever," and then we watched a little Sesame Street. Before Hummingbird left, she helped me with my respiratory treatment and even pounded my back and chest. I guess we really are best friends after all. We'll rule together!

FM-So glad the MRI is normal and I hope Froggy is feeling better soon. I love your poem and can soooo relate. After my daughter was diagnosed with CF I could have driven right off the Grand Canyon!

If you would like to send me a note my email is Karen_Humphreyjohnson@uml.edu for now. I might be changing it soon.

Thanks Karen, and I'd love to take credit, but the poem is actually by Nancy Henry. But I hear ya, at first I just wanted to drive into the ocean. But after a little time, hope crept in and we knew we would all survive this.
