Know yourself, spelled with a capital T

"Meeeee want dat!"

"What do you want, Madigan?"

"Dat! Dat DJ's. Meeee want dat!"

"Yep, that is DJ's treat. It is not yours."

"Madie-Meeee want dat!"


"Yes. Madie-Meeee is a princess. I want dat, now!"

*** Conversation with my 2 year old daughter. I am not sure if the lesson from this encounter is that it is always good to know who you are, and what you want (both wonderfully, perfect characteristics a gal should have) or if the lesson is that we (the parents of the self-confessed princess) are in T-R-O-U-B-L-E when our princess is a teenager!!!! Maybe it is both???

I think you're right in that it is a little of self-assuredness AND Princess-ness. Good luck!

It's great that she knows she's a princess! It's also very funny. That will be a nice story to use to your advantage later.
