Kid Conversation

I'm still asleep (or trying to be) and Jay and Peach come in to wake me up.

Jay:  Peach, this is the beautiful princess.  She has been asleep for many years after eating the poison apple.  If you kiss her, she'll wake up!
[Peach kisses me on the cheek and I open my eyes]
Me: You are my hero!  What is your name, fair maiden?
Peach: Peach
Me: What a beautiful, glorious name!  I will remember it with the greatest of reverence, all of my days.
[Peach is staring at me dumbfounded.  Finally she breaks the silence]
Peach: Mom.  [Studying me.  Then with amazement] You sounded like a real princess!  I've never heard you talk like that before!!!  My eyes were swirling because you talked like that!

That is THE best! "My eyes were swirling" -- I feel like that's the sort of phrase that lives on in family legacy forever. :)
