Sera's Story
I know this isn't my usual Sera picture, but it's one she requested. She asked me to take a picture of her folding her blankets. She does a really good job.

When I discovered last weekend that we didn't own Cinderella, I went to Ebay and bought it. It arrived in Thursday's mail.

Sera's preschool had called Jim to pick her up. They said she was running a temp of 103 and had green stuff oozing from her nose. This is the first time we've ever had to pick Sera up early. We made it through all last year's school year and the first three months of this school year. He whipped together sub plans and ran to get her. They sent her home with an ominous note with the above symptoms plus coughing and extreme irratibility. Of course, she ran laughing and playing when he arrived. He came home with her, took her temp while calling the doctor. It was 101, so he gave her Motrin and headed to the doctor. By the time they got there, it was normal. She never coughed. She was in a fine mood. And she's barely congested. Even so, she couldn't go back to school on Friday because they require 24 hours fever-free, so I made sub plans and didn't go to work on Friday.

When I got home on Thursday, we opened up the dvd and popped it in. To say Sera was enthralled would be understating her reaction. She sat right next to me on the sofa for the entire movie. When it ended, she asked to watch it again. Of course, we said no.

Now the thing is, I am sick. Staying home on Friday was probably a good idea for me, but staying home with a 2-year-old who is feeling fine is not restful. When she asked me Friday morning to watch the movie again, I said yes. Again, she watched it like she was glued to the sofa. She is in love with all things Cinderella right now.

We read to her every night, but none of the books we read begin with the words Once Upon a Time. Tonight, she took the book I was reading and starting reading to me. Here is her story:

Once upon a time a beautiful princess
Once upon a time a beautiful mommy
Once upon a time a beautiful Sera
Once upon a time Sera run to mommy
Once upon a time Sera run to Shadow
Once upon a time Sera run to Ava
Once upon a time Sera run to Marcia
Once upon a time Sera run to Ava's daddy
Once upon a time Sera run to daddy
Sera run to daddy fast

Hmmm...wonder where she learned Once Upon a Time?

I love it!! What a great story!! We are all about the princesses too. Apparently, the "Disney Princess phase" is basically a right of passage these days!! Hope you are feeling better!

Maybe "Once Upon a Time" is just already programmed into little girl's brains at birth...kind of like the love for shoes. Ava wears about 3 pair a day if she is home, but her favorite are her shiny boots...which she has on right now with her PJ's!

Hope by now you are doing better. I have Cinderella on our netflix, but maybe I better take a look at ebay. :)

Cheers, Kiy
