Wordful Wednesday

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

Wordful Wednesday is hosted by Angie at SevEn cLoWn CirCuS

The other night, at dinner, we were minding our own business, eating and talking about this and that when, all of a sudden, silliness descended upon us. I can’t remember exactly how the conversation began, but by the time it was over, all of us had received fairy tale nicknames.

Here’s what we came up with:

  1. My husband ::             The Specifically Non-Lion King
  2. Me::                    Fairy Godmother
  3. Laura (our married daughter)::     Beauty (Uh-oh! Then who’s the Beast?)
  4. Diederick (our 2-year old grandson):: Goldilocks the Little Bear
  5. Carly (our 5-month old granddaughter):: Sleeping Beauty Baby
  6. Rebecca (our 16-year old daughter):: Dragon (think Donkey’s girlfriend)
  7. Lydia (our 15-year old daughter)::    Mushu the Dragon
  8. Seth (our 12-year old son)::        The Handsome Prince/The Beanstalk (it was a tie)
  9. Lassie (our old doggie)::        Noble Steed (of Shrek fame)
