Princess Rachel

Princess Rachel wakes up in the morning.  Mommy is there to greet her as soon as she opens her eyes to the morning light.  Princess Rachel gracefully yawns and stretches, then daintily rubs the sleep from her eyes before greeting her Mommy.  Her eyes light up with the smile that adorns her face as she says, “Wake up! Wake up!  Dinner!” Princess Rachel crawls to the edge of the bed, climbs down, and races for the door yelling “Eggs!” as she opens the door and enters the room filled with toys.

Her mother turns on her favorite show, Sofia the First, as she passes through to the kitchen.  Soon the small apartment is filled with the sound of Disney singing, the smell of eggs and sausage, and the sight of Mommy’s little princess playing with her favorite toys in the warmth of the morning sun.

After breakfast, Mommy puts Princess Rachel into her favorite gown so she will be comfortable and warm playing in the toy room.  Mommy goes through her mental check list of things that she needs to do and/or any engagements that she may have agreed to that day.  Since her memory resembles that of Swiss cheese with way too many holes, Mommy shrugs and does whatever chores she has in the time available before she has to get her Princess and herself ready to go outside and face the world.

While Mommy does her chores, she pauses every now and again to watch her little princess in her pajama gown and jewelry.  She smiles as her little princess holds her dress out to the sides as if to curtsy, but instead wanders around the living room (aka, toy room), turning so her pajama gown will twirl like a real princess dress.  Princess Rachel catches Mommy watching her, and runs to her Mommy declaring “HUG” as she wraps her little arms around her Mommy’s legs.  She then dances away and goes back to playing with her toys and twirling around the room.

After Mommy has gotten ready for the day, she goes in to pick out what her princess will face the world in and starts on the task of getting her princess ready.  Princess Rachel looks up at her Mommy and smiles, then she says, “Poopy diaper,” as she pats her behind.  Mommy faces the daunting task of changer Princess Rachel’s diaper, but bravely gets everything she will need to complete her new task.  While changing Princess Rachel, the princess looks at her and inquires, “Stinky poopy diaper?”

“Yes”, Mommy confirms, “Stinky poopy diaper”.

When the task is completed and the evidence properly disposed of in the biohazard canister that has been placed in the kitchen (aka – trash can), they gather up their things and prepare to open the door. “Do you know what is outside?” Mommy asks Princess Rachel.  Princess Rachel looks up at her expectantly, knowing that Mommy is going to tell her.  “Adventure,” Mommy says. “You never know what is going to happen when you step outside your front door.”  With that, Mommy and Princess Rachel step outside….

I'm a medical coder by day, hermit by night, a 24 hr mommy, and a closet line-dancer whenever I get the chance. I love my daughter, I love my job, I love my friends, I love my cats, and I love my family. I love the dry heat, driving into the middle of the desert at night to see the moon and the stars, beading jewelry, torturing the unaware, and scaring people. People say I'm evil, but I'm not. I'm just a little mischievous.
