A birthday story

Each night we read bedtime stories to Phoebe and tuck her in to bed. When the lights go out, she asks us if there’s going to be any “rain, storms or wind” overnight (She's done it every night since this happened).

Then, she asks for one more story, which Kates usually makes up based on something that happened that day, starring Princess Phoebe.

This is the story Kates told Phoebe tonight …

Once upon a time there was a princess named Phoebe, and she had a little sister, Princess Faye.

And one day it was the king’s birthday.

To get ready for the big day, Princess Phoebe helped her mommy bake a cake, and she drew a beautiful picture for the king.

And when the king came home, they ate supper together. Then, they put on their party hats, and Princess Phoebe helped the king blow out his candles.

And they lived happily ever after.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.
