Overheard

Cora is sitting on the first step of our staircase, in her Sleeping Beauty shirt and pink tutu over her dress of the day, with her new pink princess shoes on. Chris walks by and says, "Don't you look like a nice princess!"

Cora's response? "No, I'm a dirty kitchen wench."

In a diagram of Cora's daily thoughts, Cinderella would overshadow pretty much everything else.

Kids! Always they come at you from around a bend, a corner. I love this. What did Chris reply? Or could he?

And where was the phrase "dirty kitchen wench" picked up? Not sure that anyone else's child except that of an English teacher would respond that way...

I think Chris's reply was, "I thought you were a princess?" And Cora said patiently, "No, daddy, these are my rags."

I am pretty sure that "dirty kitchen wench" was in one of the library books. I'm sure that's it. Yeah - I'm blaming the library! :)
