My Two Princes
The boys and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at Chick fil A this evening. Tuesday is "Family Night" and KIDS EAT FREE...woo hoo! Tonight's family night had a theme! PRINCESS NIGHT! Just up our alley...not...at least, I would not have guessed that it would have been! Maddox took off to play in the play area with about 5 little girls...several wearing princess dresses! He picked a favorite, the oldest of the group (probably around 6 or 7) and they ran and played as hard as they could. When they came back to the tables to take a hydration break the little girl introduced Maddox to her mother...she said, "This is my new friend Maddox, he's 5 1/2!" Oh my goodness...he's already fibbing about his age to try to get in with the older ladies! Cinderella showed up while we were still there. Melissa, Maddox's new love interest, ran with her sisters to get in line to talk to the princess. So, Maddox just fell in line behind them! He waited patiently to speak to her and told her his name (without being prompted) and that he lived just around the corner. What, was he trying to pick up Cinderella?? I asked him if he'd like to have his picture with her...he said no and that "That's not cool" until he saw his lady friend Melissa have her picture taken with her sisters...he (a bit reluctantly) stood next to Cinderella for a quick photo. So funny!!!
