Tree love

Meet Little O’s latest love:

Yup, that’s a willow tree. A willow tree in my parent’s backyard, to be specific.

But not to Little O.

She took one look at it and proclaimed it a Rapunzel Tree. Because it has long hair just like her favorite character in the world, Rapunzel from Tangled.

Little O loves her Rapunzel Tree. She talks about it multiple times every day. She looks for other Rapunzel Trees when we’re taking a walk. She visits the Rapunzel Tree every chance she gets and give it hugs.

I’m thinking the Hubs & I might need to find a Rapunzel Tree in our neck of the woods. 


The best part? Just like that, “Rapunzel Tree” has become a part of our vernacular. Willow trees have ceased to exist in our household.

Have you experienced something similar with your little one? Leave a comment below, I’d love to hear what object your child has renamed– and that you’ve adapted into your family’s vocabulary!


Counting My Kisses: It’s incredible to see the way a two-year-old’s mind works. I love how they can connect two seemingly different things– like a willow tree and a Disney princess– and somehow, it works. It’s such a gift to watch them learn, grow and explore!

  1. That is so cute! I just came to your blog from the apple ipad 2 giveaway over on Deals4Dummies and thought your girls are adorable. I am married but don't have kids yet, but I have two nieces with blonde hair & blue eyes that are 5 and 2 1/2, and so much fun! They LOVE the Tangled movie too. Nice to meet you by the way!

    • Thanks so much for stopping by Melissa! Nice to "meet" you too! 🙂 I'll have to swing by your blog during naptime. 🙂 So funny that you have two nieces who also LOVE Tangled…I swear most of our day is spent either talking about Tangled or singing songs from Tangled! 🙂 Hope you stop by again soon– and good luck in the iPad 2 giveaway! 🙂
