The Griswold Family's Favourite Things - A Princess' Perspective

I was cleaning the girls' room and discovered a small stack of papers with The Princess' writing. I thought it might be some more of her songs, but I was soon to discover it was a window into a 7 year old's perspective on her family.

There was a page for each member of our family. The Princess seems to have a pretty good handle on us.

Things That The Princess Likes


  • butterflies
  • school
  • drawing
  • skipping rope
  • Webkins
  • books
  • ladybugs
  • especially Snuggles. She is my favourite toy.

Things That The Baby Likes

  • dogs
  • the park
  • books
  • Mommy
  • my sister
  • Snuggamugga (the Baby's nighttime stuffy)

Things That The Eldest Likes

  • books
  • sleeping
  • movies
  • hugs

Things That The Boy Likes

  • the computer
  • xbox games

Things That Daddy Likes

  • poker
  • playing golf
  • hugs
  • kisses
  • books

Things That Mommy Likes

  • coffee
  • hugs
  • sleeping
  • books
  • kissing
  • my family

I find it interesting that Daddy likes kisses and I like kissing. Somehow there seems to be a difference.

I also think it's funny that The Boy only has two entries. But it's very accurate.

I love her last entry under my name.

I love my family. And I love the fact that my seven year old knows that.

Of course there's a difference. Obviously, you're the one who likes GIVING kisses. The Husband likes GETTING kisses. Sounds like a win-win situation actually.

Love the boy's likes.
