"There was a beeooooooootiful princess named...Awowa. But the mean, um..."
*whispers behind her hand* "Mommy, what is the mean lady's name?"
"Oh, yes...the mean lady, Malificent, didn't like Awowa. She was jealous and it isn't nice to be jealous!"
*frowning* "So mean Malificent tricked Awowa to touch the noodle at the top of the stairs and all the land fell fast asleep."
"The prince heard about the beeoooooootiful princess and fought the dragon" *She stabs around with an air sword*
"And the dragon got dead and flew far away! The Prince kissed Awowa and all the kingdom woke up and they got married! *she says this part really fast and nearly breathless*
Be Friend. *she bows her head in appreciation for the applause she's about to receive*
Yes, she ends stories with "Be Friend", how cute is THAT? I love LOVE that Bella tells us stories now. Watching her pull stories together from what she's heard or seen and how animated she becomes during her story-telling is a delightful peek into her imagination. *sigh* So blessed...
