Tiaras, tulle and Charlie

**Hola! Buenas tardes...we're back from Spain! We had a fabulous trip and loved every minute (also missed our little ones every minute we were gone). I can't wait to post pictures from our trip, but for the moment I'm swamped with work and catching up around home. While I get to work downloading and organizing pictures, here is a post I put together awhile back but never used.**


We went to a Birthday party for one of the girls in Charlie's class. The party had a Princess theme, complete with a real live Cinderella to tell stories.




Charlie was a good sport and wore a tiara, but he was only mildly interested in Cinderella and her stories. We don't tell Charlie that some objects or activities are for girls, others for boys. I think kids figure those things out on their own soon enough. At school, they play dress up and Charlie is just as likely to choose a Princess costume as he is the fireman's outfit.


He was excited to have his face painted -  can't you tell? Note the lovely drawing on his arm - Cinderella was doling out rainbows and butterflies, but Charlie asked for a hippopotamus. It was a bit of a challenge and outside her usual repertoire.


My little prince!

New posts coming soon on our new CSA adventure and eating local, and LOTS of pictures from Spain! Stay tuned...
