"She's Kinda Like the Principal"

Lately, Addy's been waking me up at the crack of dawn to tell me about her dreams.  She's been a dreamy girl lately--again, further proof the child is mine, mine, mine.  We do this. Regular. Last night she had a dream that she and her cousin, Alexis, were riding the bus home together after school and another girl started picking on Alexis.  Addy proudly told me how she stood up for Alexis and told the bully-girl she better stop or, "I'm telling my mom!"

Side Note:  We watched Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix last night and Addy went on and on about how brave Harry was.  I think this had something to do with her dream.  Awesome.  

Anyway, so in her dream, the bully-girl progressed to slapping Alexis, so Addy pulled The Card, and warned the bully-girl--"MY MOM'S ON THE PTO! She's kinda like the Principal."  

Enough said. 

p.s. I sure don't condone fighting, but I sure do condone the standing up for oneself and others.  Be brave.

I read this to Katie and she said, "It's a little bit true." Kinda cool that our kids think we're way more powerful and important than we are, hm?

Love that A-girl's mind.

Oh thank you soo much for the kind comment! I'm getting up in years and it's nice to still get a compliment from time to time :)

Sounds like you'll have some big shoes to fill if your daughter is already comparing you to Harry Potter! :)

Love it! I already have a perspective on that PTO from hearing Jen's stories, but now I KNOW it's true. You guys rule!

And I love dream recaps too; the mind is a wild place--at least mine is!
