By the time they made it to our house, Miss Caralyn was so full of herself that she had a major attitude. She was bossy & demanding & we hadn't made it a couple miles before I turned around, looked her dead in the eye & said, "Caralyn Camille! You lose the attitude!". She looked me dead in the eye & said, "yes ma'am!" & then nodded off on the drive there.
Here I am, changing the brat into a princess! ;o)
Here she is, waiting in line to get Cinderella's autograph. She was so excited! So was the little girl in front of us, whose mother kept saying "are you sure you really want Cinderella's autograph bad enough to wait in this very long line?" To which, the girl would say, "yes Mom...I really really want it!". A few minutes would pass & the mother would say again, "I just want to make sure that it's important enough to you, cause this line is really long & it's going to take forever" ... over & over again. I wanted to say, "look Lady, either disappoint your daughter & step out of this very long line or shut up!" but I didn't, of course. I just kept shooting pictures of Caralyn. ;o)
I didn't get a picture of her glass slippers. Truth be known, she didn't wear them very long cause they give her a blister. We expected that though & brought along flip flops. I told her "Life's too short to wear shoes that make your feet hurt...even if they are reeallllly pretty."
Until she said, "Honey!!! Stop taking pictures of me!" LOL
This is my favorite shot of the day & it doesn't even have Caralyn in it. But it captures the reaction of the Prince & Cinderella when they saw Caralyn, in all her finery.
They wouldn't pose for pictures, as they wanted the line to move as quickly as possible, so all I got was the back of Caralyn's head w/ Cinderella but she did tell Caralyn, "I LOVE your dress... it is so pretty!"
Look at the awestruck look on her face...she thinks she really met royalty. And don't anybody tell her any different!
And not the King either. She wasn't even all that interested in the handsome Prince...the only one she thought was important was Cinderella.
The pollen count has been very high here & Caralyn had already been wheezing ... the fake fog they used in the show didn't help matters any so by the next day she was having a full blown asthma attack. My daughter took her into the Dr, not too concerned cause this happens all the time but Caralyn's oxygen count was so low that she had to be taken to Cook's in an ambulance! It was very traumatizing @ the time for Caralyn but true to her Princess nature, she's now lording it over her brothers that she got to ride in an ambulance & they didn't! That's my girl!!! *grins*
