I was talking to Autumn about this fairy tale thing and we were sharing some of our thoughts and memories. We twinnies had our favorites, as did our four younger sisters. What kicked off the memory was seeing a set of the girl fairy tale books on sale. Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel…And the list goes on and on! We had so many to choose from and the twinnie and I read them all…
Our favorites? That’s hard to nail one down, I was partial to Cinderella…The glass slipper and the whole thing. How romantic, the prince saved her from that evil stepmother and sisters. They were all just shameful to her after all…I know it was pretend! Autumn’s favorite, she was torn between Snow White and Rapuzel and also The Princess and the Pea. I couldn’t get a straight answer out of her…Sometimes that’s how the twinnie is, what can I do with her?
We did have a good old laugh over a shared memory of two of our sisters fighting over the one part in Snow White. You all know what I’m going to say…I just have that feeling you all do. “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall… Who’s the fairiest of them all? Well, those two sisters had a nice sized hand held mirror each. They went around shoving those mirrors in us poor twinnies faces and asking the famous question. It was cute at first, but then got annoying, you know what I mean? It didn’t matter if they asked who was the fairest of them all, they turned the mirror back to themselves! So, of course they were the fairest of them all…The mirror said so! Then, they would break into the laugh like the Evil Queen…Those girls got that laugh mastered pretty well!
Autumn and I tried getting them interested in other fairy tales, so did our Mom and even our Dad. We were all getting weary of the hand held mirrors in our faces, yes they actually pulled it on Mom and Dad a few times! That was getting rather bold and gutsy, wasn’t it?
What finally ended the mirrors and the whole deal? Well, unfortunately one of the little sisters got a bit rowdy with the other one, insisting she was the fairest.Before we could stop them…Oops, a crash. They were acting like the mirrors were swords…Both of them hit the floor and broke! That was the last we heard about “Who was the fairest of them all!” 😉 🙂
