Hornie Princess

I don't like babies. I just thought I'd throw that out there because I always get nervous smiles or laughter when I say it. Most people who know me just shake their heads and laugh cause, well... they know me.

However I totally get the biggest kick out of kids once they turn about 2. 3's perfect and 4 year olds can keep me entertained all day long.

Crazy Twisty (who is getting her own special post as soon as I gather all the evidence) has a little boy whose words will delight me for days on end. I love the way little kids talk, they way the enunciate their words, their odd little accents that they have picked up from who knows where, and especially the stories that come out of their mouthe's.

This weekend my friend was here with me. Her almost 5 year old joined us Sunday but that story is way to convoluted to delve into so I won't even try. So yesterday Marc walks in with Saige and Chase and Hannah to drop them off and puts a unicorn on the couch. He looks at us and says, "Meet Hornie."
"I'm sorry?" I say.
"Her unicorn. She named it Hornie," he informed us with a smirk.
"I got it at Build a Bear," Hannah stated proudly with the brilliant innocence of a child who has named their unicorn Horny because it has a horn. Shame on the rest of us for giggling and laughing.
"Yes, well maybe we can think of a different name for it," her Mom said looking a little embarrassed.
Marc just smiles as he shakes his head no.
"No. I put it on the birth certificate," Hannah states proudly.

Fast forward to today. We were getting ready to run some errands and Hannah says to me in the cutest little voice ever, "Amy, can I bring my horse to play with because I never got a unicorn at build a bear before."
"By all means, pack up Hornie and let's get a move on," I say.
"We are calling her by her middle name today," Hannah says, "Hornie is her first name."
"What is she going by today?" I ask.
"Princess! Her name is Hornie Princess!"

Of course it is.

That's so sweet of Hannah to name her unicorn after me. I'm blushing.

We knew you'd be honored.

Wasn't that the original name for Snow White?

(And by the way, I am totally with you on the "Baby Thing". I am only willing to go as young as 18 months.)

Kathy, I think you might be right.
Billy-You knew I would delete that! Did you just want to watch it happen? :) Silly thing.

First of all, babies are disgusting.

They are floppy. They smell like rotten milk (or worse, spoiled formula) and shit and vomit. Or the chemicals that people pour on their kids to cover up the milk/shit/vomit stench. They can't do a godamned thing but lay around and whine about how horrible they are feeling.

Second of all. That's hilarious about Hornie

I think the name is clever. Who wouldn't want to be a horny princess. A pink horny princess with a neigh button in the hoof as well.
