So Chase really wanted to study castles. And I thought, I'll just go down to the library and check out a book for inspiration. Well, there weren't any books on castles (go figure), and there aren't any castles we can visit, and I've made about 1,000 castles out of cardboard boxes for barbie already. And I was tired and feeling "off" all week (I blame the insane heat!) - I hate to admit I couldn't even come up with a craft idea.

We did, however, check out a book on living royalty - a book that profiles all of the princes and princesses all over the world. And Chase asked if she was a princess, and I told her "you're always going to be MY princess," but that wasn't exactly what she wanted me to say.

I think she was really hoping I would say, as I once hoped my parents would say, "oh yes! And I was waiting for the day you would ask. Come with me and we will go to your castle and I will tell you all about how to rule your kingdom." Seriously.

So then she said, "well then we need to arrange a play date with a prince. Mom, can you do that, please?"

Sooooo, if anyone happens to know a bored 4- to 6-year-old prince who is available for a play date, please let me know.
