My 5-year-old daughter, Evie, is painfully shy. Even as a baby she would glare at anyone who dared to give her a smile. At home she is a silly, giggling, occasionally dramatic child, but outside of our family she still has trouble even saying hi or making eye contact with anyone.
And now, her first and only friend has moved over an hour away! I have been praying for my little girl, hoping she will make a new friend. This past weekend, I unexpectedly got the wish I had been praying for. Meet Princess Davis:
My daughter spotted her lovely rock out the window and rescued her from our dangerous yard. Now she and the princess are best friends. They go everywhere together. The princess even eats breakfast with us and brushed her teeth this morning.
According to my daughter, they are both 5-years-old, shy, and only talk to each other. Evie is her stylist and insisted that Princess Davis wear a necklace for her photo shoot today.
Later this week we will work on befriending real people, but for today, I am grateful my daughter has found her princess.
