“Mum! Mum… What’s that?”

“Oh, um. That’s a foot, Darling.”

“Someone’s foot? Who does it belong to?”

A glance around showed a relatively empty city square. Too early for office lunch crowds, the air bit at their throats and made their noses drip. “Well, uh… Cinderfella of course.”

“Who?” Giant eyes grew rounder.

“Poor Cinderfella. His fairy godmother helped him get to the ball but alas midnight came, and he had to leave the Princess behind…”

“Will she find him, Mum?”

“I’m sure the Princess will hunt forever and ever to find him.”

“Princesses are awesome.”

“You’re so right, Jimmy.”

  1. Princesses are awesome 🙂

  2. My granddaughter has been a princess for the past two years. They are awesome!

  3. Ha! I love this. Cinderfella indeed.

  4. Cinderfella… saw a play called that and it was just as funny as this.

  5. I love the way you changed the story around. Brilliant. Loved it!

  6. Wow! What a great way of breaking gender stereotypes so early one. Loved it.

  7. I’m sure they will find him, one step at a time. I do wonder though, if children can unfathomed the little white lies that enhance their imagination? Fun read.

  8. Mum is pretty quick on her feet, I’d say…. Nice one.

    🙂 Love Mum’s quick thinking there. I don’t imagine Jimmy ever gets bored at home.

    • She’s definitely got some great Mommy skills! And nice swap of the glass slipper for the artificial leg! It does not seem to bother the child one bit that the hero is missing part of his leg. That’s raising the next generation right!

    • Hahaha I hope so!! 😊
