Such was the question Claire posed over breakfast. I hardly knew what to say. Still don't actually. This is yet more proof that anything I say can and will be used against me later. Who on earth said such a think to my daughter? I bet this came from listening to her dad's talk radio drivel in his car, right? How did I come to have children with a man who listens to talk radio? How? Well, they are appealing children, anyhow.
After I read a book to Claire she often likes to "read" it back to me. This is Claire's version of Beauty and the Beast (board book edition).
Once upon a time there was a kind and beautiful girl named Belle.
There was a prince and his dungeon cast a spell on him and made him a beast.
That's Belle and her dress is yellow.
And then they had soup.
And she is not a teapot anymore, and he is not a cup anymore, and she is not a candle anymore. And he is not a beast anymore. And when Belle wears the yellow dress, she gets babies.
Now I know how I got those girls. I am getting rid of my yellow dresses ASAP.
