Ariel According to Addie

Addie and I had a rare moment to just hang out together this afternoon. Em was at school and I asked Ad if she would like to lie on Mommy and Daddy’s bed and just read some books. Take a little rest.

Of course she said “yes” and grabbed a stack of princess books from Em’s room.

So we were all cuddled up in the comforter with the sun was streaming in through the windows.  We were just lying there giggling and having a totally fun time. After I had read a few books, Addie looked at me and said, so sweetly, “Me read to you, Mommy? I read Ariel to you.”

“I would love that, Addie!” I said, as I settled back in the pillows and waited for my story.

This is the story of Ariel, as told by Addie.

“Once upon a time, there was an Ariel. She was a princess.” (turn page)
“Once upon a time, Ariel swimmed in the ocean with the fishies, their names are Flounder and Sebastian.”
“Oh, no!” Sebastian is no fish (giggles), Sebastian is a crab!” (turns page)
“Once upon a time, Ariel had a dinklehobber (I believe it is really a “dinglehopper” in the story.) and she combs her hair.” (turns page)
“Once upon a time, Ariel marries Prince Eric.” (slams the book shut)
“THE End.”
“Good story, Mama?”

The best story. Told by the sweetest storyteller, Addikins.

    Such a sweet story! 🙂 I love the smiley picture of her, too. She is such a pretty little girl. I love seeing how their personalities come out now that they have a decent grasp of the English language. Listening to them is so fun. 😀

    Is there nothing better than listening to your child’s version of any favorite story? I love their unique little spins on stories and of course the mispronounced words that are absolutely endearing to us momma’s.

    First I just HAVE to say how much I adore darling, happy, crinkley-nosed Addikins! And I love her version of Ariel. No bad guys in that story! i can’t wait until N is old enough to tell me stories – how fun to get that glimpse of their little minds!
