Assault With a Deadly Pea

We have been reading a lot of Princess stories lately. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid...and for some odd reason, The Princess and the Pea.

Now, straight up, I don't get this one. It's not OK for the Queens' son to marry a girl who he has fallen in love with (in one night) until she proves she is high maintenance, because she can't sleep with the pea under 25 mattresses. OK? Miss Peach LOVES it. I read it over, and over, and over...You get the picture.

Today in the car on the way home...

Miss Peach: "Mommy peas are dangerous!"
Me: "What? What are you talking about?"
Miss Peach: "Peas hurt people. They are dangerous."

I don't think she quite gets the story...

  7. I always liked that story too, although I'm not sure why. Perhaps because the play is so cute. ???

  8. That is funny. I think Peas are yucky. Maybe my Mom wouldn't have made me eat them if I had told her they were dangerous...

  9. I've never gotten that story, either. Don't you think the pea would be squished by the time all those mattresses got piled up on top of it?!
