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!
