Details of love. Do you share them?
Sacha asked, "How does a girl like to be treated?"
I said, "Listen to her. Share with her. Notice who she is."
Sacha replied, "Mom, Mom, Mom... we are talkin' my age, nowadays, not eighteen century whatever. "
(Photo this summer of my friend Ulla and her jewelry that she creates.)
I asked Sacha if he remembered when Molly (his cousin and my four year old niece,) dressed up in a vintage dress said, "I need a Prince." I asked him if he remembered when she asked him, "Cousin, will you be my Prince? I need a handsome boy?" He nodded yes.

"Sacha," I said, "Girls at any age, whether four, fourteen, forty or more, want to be loved and appreciated. They want to share life and laugh and enjoy the freedom to be loved as they are. They want a Prince of a man to believe that they are worthy of everything true and beautiful. A fairytale can be real life.
Isn't it true?
Sacha you have the golden slipper in your hand. Send positive thoughts to the woman of your dreams. She is there, and she too is dreaming of you. Your time will come."

I know deep down Sacha heard me, though he still shook his head and said, "Mom, Mom, Mom, I was kinda hoping you would say something like offer them a piece of gum and say "Hi" when you walk by. You know something normal day to day stuff like that."
Yeah that works too.
