Apparently I Live With Royalty

I know what you are probably thinking, my husband is the King of our castle and I am the beloved Queen. I suppose that would be true if we were living in a fairytale but my Queenly crown has been missing in action for almost two years.

I think it may have something to do with this:











Or perhaps this:









And well, this:


My son is the Prince and I am his sole minion. The King (Dad) will never be ruled by the little Prince. I on the other hand am at his beck and call.

Dinnertime: Would you like green peas?
Prince Mekhi: NO!
Minion: Would you like burgers?
Prince Mekhi: NO!
Minion: Would you like grapes?
Prince Mekhi: NO!

And so it goes, a full litany of food choices until the Prince settles on the old standby: yogurt (it is just not a Princely day without yogurt).

Of course, I am the chambermaid too. There is no one in this castle that can change a poopy diaper or pull-up faster than me. As a matter of fact, chambermaid is one of my chief duties (no pun intended) around here. I change 9 out of 10 diapers!

Finally, I am the royal dresser. No Prince could live without one. And dressing the Prince takes careful planning. As soon as one article of clothing comes off he dashes down the hall to the relative safety of (King) Dad’s office. Yes, he gets sent back but dressing a Prince takes no less that 15 minutes. Every single day!

Aaaah, the life of a Prince. I just hope he remembers these days when I am old and decrepit and our roles are reversed!

That last sentence is so true. I always tell my husband "Be careful how we treat the kids now, cause our future is in their hands".

MOMMY-MOMO said...

sooo true... and sooo cute!!!

Ali said...

And what a cute little Prince he is! My 4 yr old wanted to feed me some jello one day and I told him that is was good training because in 50 yrs he may have to do this again!

Sheliza said...

yes, I have an 11 month old Prince and he gets the royal treatment daily! Oh and he LOVES yogurt too :) Don't you miss being the Queen? ha ha ha!

Marinka said...

He's the cutest royalty that I've ever seen!

Yolanda said...

Your prince is so cute. I tell people that sometimes it's like I have 2 very short and demanding little bosses- they don't believe in breaks or in raises of any sort. But I love them more every day even if they are tyrants. :)

I look at it as payment toward my days when I'll need someone to pull up the blanket for me. LOL!

Sage and Savvy said...

Ha ha...so cute and funny. My little boy loves yogurt too.

I'm sure your Prince will treat his mommy like a Queen when he gets older!

Talking with Tami said...

Awh let him be a lil prince charmer too cute!

CaraBee said...

I am so with you. It is a shame that they don't remember these days and all our hard work. Of course, the good news is they don't remember all the stupid stuff we do either. So I guess it balances out.

Carrie said...

If he is the prince that makes you the Queen!

Mocha Dad said...

I think that I'll get some of those utensils to use at work. People will treat me much differently if they knew I were royalty.

Kat said...

Oh, so cute. The last year was like that for us. I think all my kid ate for six months was chicken nuggets and milk. Or anything with ketchup on it. It has all changed now, though - he demands vegetables, and will eat anything we are eating.

anymommy said...

Seriously, will they remember? Because all these years as the chief chambermaid and lady in waiting are going to take their toll.

Dejoni said...

Story of my life too! I just have to remember these are the ones that will pick out my nursing home. LOL!

♥georgie♥ said...

shunee said...

Threeboys1mommy said...

Nuh uh mama, I'm the queen around here... just let me believe that hmm k ;-)

Dori said...

What an adorable little prince :)

fly tie said...

lol @ the image of him dashing down the hall while being undressed. little ones love that freedom of being naked or near naked any chance they get! (heck, so do i, lol!)

such cute and funny commentary. but yes, you are still the queen. rather than sitting your throne, though, you've been on active queen duty to ensure that the prince is growing and healthy. then, once he's older, he can be at *your* every beck and call!

Nikki Seals said...

I too have been feeling like a servant to my son. It's amazing how well he is treated. And I've got to tell you, I am a little jealous.

Wifey said...

Love it! We're so on the same page ... there's a coup going on at my house right now with my son - smiles!

He'll remember when the time comes and he'll get his wife to take care of you, too! LOL.

LaTonya Yvette said...

Do your "Thang" Little Prince.

Frogs in my formula said...

Hah--I think we are on the same food groups: yogurt and grapes. Though sometimes he switches it up and eats a grilled cheese. They are little princes aren't they?

the prisoner's wife said...

LOL the conversations about dinner is so true. my 3 yr old has turned into some kind of picky eater who only likes ice cream, or things that taste like it (yogurt, certain fruit, milk shakes). and sometimes, he doesn't eat dinner at all. i've just sort of given up. he will eat when he wants, but he will still have to eat whatever i make for him. i'm not resorting to feeding him ice cream 3 times a day.

Sara said...

Maybe soon you will be "Queen for a Day".
