If Our Lives Were a Fairytale...

Hannah, in the eyes of her three-year old brother
Apparently it would be written by the Brothers Grimm.
Caleb's favorite story lately has been "The Three Billy Goats Gruff." I must have read it to him about a million times lately, and today was no exception.
"Read me THIS!" he ordered as I was putting him down for a nap.
"Ooh, let's give the Billy Goats names today, instead of calling them just 'little Billy, middle Billy, and Big Billy,'" I suggested, desperate for a fresh change in the oft-told tale.
"Yeah! That's a ger-ate idea!" (My son says "great" like Tony the Tiger")
"Ok, so this one's Caleb (little Billy), this one's Hannah (middle Billy), and this one's Sarah (big Billy)," I told him.
"NO MOMMA! You're wrong! This one's Caleb (little Billy), this one's Sarah (Middle Billy), and this one's Mommy (Big Billy)."
"Well then, where's Hannah? She's gonna feel left out," I warned.
"She's right here, Momma! (pointing to the Troll)"
So I clarified, "You think Hannah should be a troll?"
"Uh-huh, Hannah's the Mean Troll!"
Sorry Hannah, but somebody had to be the Troll, I guess. Don't worry, you're still Momma's Princess, even if you're a Troll in your brother's eyes ;)
