Being at the castle on the 4th of July has it's perks. Of course the parade route runs right in front of our place. So, we all enjoyed a great beginning to a special month. This was Princess Peach's first parade experience. She wasn't quite sure about the whole thing. After the fire truck rolled by, she wouldn't leave my lap, not even for suckers. She'll learn!
This is kind of an off year for the Fairy Tail Family. Each night the queen gets a little bit worse, which is a surprise since each day we talk about how we can't imagine how she can get any worse. Last night Plum woke up at 11:30 PM with a fever, the queen woke up, also sick at 12:00 AM, and Peach woke up at 1:00, just in time to cling to my leg as I helped the queen get more comfortable. At 2:00 Plum was up again and with so much excitement in the middle of the night, Peach refused to go back to sleep until 4:00. Thank goodness The Dukes and Duchesses were visiting this weekend. They saved the day all weekend, holding, feeding, and chasing the princesses while I took care of Royal Business.
The whole situation makes the happiest month of the year a little bitter sweet. my emotions are definitely on overload. I mean, come on! Who tears up during a neighborhood 4th of July parade?
Have I mentioned that I miss Charming? Life just isn't the same without his help and hugs and kisses.
