She’s The Princess

I’ve heard many times that whether you’re a parent of a girl or a boy it really doesn’t make much of a difference, but I have to say they are WRONG! I can remember when I was pregnant with Zeva people would look at me and say your boys are going to spoil her rotten. I didn’t believe them because I just remember being tormented and picked on by my brothers. I was very shocked by the reality of what these veteran parents knew.

Zeva has been spoiled rotten since she was born by me and the boys. She asks for something and one of us usually help her get it. As a result she’s a demanding little princess. She knows she’s in charge. She knows her limits and we are getting better at enforcing that she learns she is not the little queen bee (that’s my slot.)

I never in a million years figured my boys would spoil her like they do. They make darn certain she is as happy as any little girl can possibly be. They were pushing her around her in Fisher-Price Rocker when she was a baby. They have ensured that she is never excluded when they play.

They’ve even humbled themselves and held tea parties with her. Her wish has become their command in so many ways. Yet, they love her with a passion. They don’t look at the things they do for her as a chore or an annoyance. They enjoy making her smile with delight.

Although Zeva has no quarrels with getting dirty in the mud, she prefers to get frilly things. Her little bathing suit has a  Toto attached to it. I can’t polish my nails without doing hers. She has literally already taken Koolaide and tried to use it as lipstick. She loves her dresses and fancy shoes.

She is all girl. I love the fact that her brothers are treating her so well. I hope and pray everyday that they maintain this bond. I never dreamed that their relationship would be as grand as it is.

I’d love to hear about the little girls in your life.

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.

  1. Hello,
    I decided to pay you a visit as well. That’s great that your boys know how to treat a little lady. I’m sure it is special to watch. Love the look of your blog. Best wishes.

    • Thank you for the compliment on the blog look. It is definitely special to watch, and I hope that she continues to teach them how to properly treat a lady.

    • I have to agree both as the little girl in the family and now as a mother to a little girl. In both cases it has held true.

  2. I helped with my twin sisters and they were so spoiled too! I was 10 years older than them, but I would dress them up and comb their hair and when I got a job when they were older, I bought them tons of stuff with my pay check. I just loved making them happy!

    • I find that interesting that parents have kids so many years apart. I bet your parents were glad for the help with the twins. I can’t imagine handling two or more babies at once. I’m so glad that you have that you enjoyed making them happy like that.

  3. My youngest is a girl and her older brothers both spoiled her and teased her. Of course, now that they are grown up, we learned that they teased more than we knew. On the other hand, she was the baby and is the baby no matter how old she is and that means something.

    • That’s so sweet. I love hearing about how other siblings treated each other. Thank you for sharing.

  4. My daughter is a princess. She doesn’t have brothers but her big sister always has her back and loves her.

  5. Aw! Your children are adorable- and she is quite the princess 🙂 I don’t have any children yet but hope to soon!

    • As a father to three kids, don’t rush it. Enjoy your independence for as long as you can. Nah seriously, I love my kids and wouldn’t trade it. I just miss my free days sometimes.

  6. I have to laugh because my step-son will do anything for his niece that lives with us. So I can relate to the she is a princess.

    • Thank you for sharing about your step-son and his niece’s relationship. I think it’s something we can all relate to.

    • Thank you. I didn’t realize how different they were until I had both of them on my hands.

  7. Thank you for sharing this post. When you look at the pictures of the boys with their little sister you can’t help but smile. Your daughter is very lucky to have such devoted brothers.

  8. My daughter is an only girl and is such a daddy’s girl and her brothers are all ready protective of her she is such a princess. You have a cutie 😉

  9. I adore that they have this bond. I was in the grocery store this week and saw a little girl throw a tantrum and drop to the floor. She must have been 2-3 yrs old. Her mother scolded her and her brother (I assume 8 yrs old) went to the girl and told her she would be okay. He picked her up and carried her as she cried. It was so beautiful! It made me miss my big brother even though we are MUCH older.
