What can transform this terrified child:
Into this child who was so enthusiastic that we couldn't snap a photo without vigorous in-front-of-face waving?
Only the magical power of the princess float!
Sasha has been steadily educating us on the very real differences between the genders, and the Summerfest parade afforded us another opportunity to learn.
The fire trucks, motorcycles, and honking cars produced floods of tears and emphatic "All done! All done! All done!" signs. I can't blame her too much for her adverse reaction to those parts of the parade, it was really loud and I'm not a huge fan of sirens either. Yet without fail, as soon as a princess (a.k.a. beauty pageant) float rolled by the tears stopped and were immediately replaced by enraptured waving. Just put sparkles and tiaras in front of this girl and all is right with her world!
