Yesterday, my 3-year-old son became a mermaid.
Many parents dream of greatness for their children, but to think that mine has achieved becoming a mythical creature (and a different gender) at such a young age is astounding. So long Harvard, hello Pacific Ocean! Prepare the coconut bra!
Some of you may be asking yourselves, “How is this possible???” Well, let me enlighten you.
TheLittlePrince’s 3 Steps to Becoming a Mermaid
Step 1) Find a green pillow case
Step 2) Insert your legs into said green pillow case
Step 3) Tell everyone you’re a mermaid
Now, I must warn you that mermaids cannot walk on dry land and may need some assistance getting around the house (ie, you will carry/drag your very heavy child and their fins everywhere). And siblings may or may not get angry and throw a little tantrum that it’s their pillow case that has transformed their younger sibling into a creature of the sea, but that’s a trivial matter.
Congrats on your new mythical creature!
