It just might be sinking in. The Queen and Prince Charming often wonder if the lessons that they teach the prince and princess are getting through to their busy little minds and hearts. Evidence reared its head on Saturday.

The Queen took the prince and princess to a local church for their Easter Egg hunt. It is the church in which Prince Charming grew up and his father still attends. The royal family attends another church in the area. We arrived to find approximately 20 children excited to hunt for colorful eggs filled with yummy treats.

The leader gave the signal and all 17 dozen eggs were found in a matter of minutes. The prince gave his basket to The Queen for inspection. Since he is allergic to certain tree nuts, he must have his confections checked for possibility of contamination. In addition to the prize egg ($5 and jelly bean center), he had many eggs with questionable chocolates. After The Queen confiscated the chocolates, the prince started to pout. He was convinced to try the cake and juice. After getting his plate, he came back to his basket and took the jelly beans. "I'm giving these to Granddaddy," he said.

Prince Charming picked him up from the church on his way to do a farm errand. The pouting continued. When we got home, the pouting continued. He was upset that he couldn't have the candy and only knew one child at the event. I asked, "Prince, why did you give your jelly beans to Granddaddy?" His reply almost made The Queen cry. He said, "Because he didn't find a single egg."

He gets it. He really gets it. And that is the Easter message ... selfless love!

The grass is green. It's good to be The Cow Queen.

    That's why I shared the story. I'm sure I'll get around to some stories that "aren't so adorable" too.
    Thanks for stopping by.

    Every time one of my little boogers says something like that it gives me the tingles. That IS a reflection of good parenting.
