A Bedtime Story.
A mess of smooth, shiny blonde hair, burrowing beneath blankets, until a pair of radiant blue eyes peek above the covers.
And the story begins.
Once upon a time, in a kingdom far far away, there lived a kind, smart, princess named Naomi.
Princess Naomi was a very good painter. Everybody knew that Naomi was the best painter in all of the land.
One day, a DRAGON! flew into the kingdom. He told everyone that HE was the best painter in all of the land.
Princess Naomi knew that this simply was not true. So, they decided to have a painting contest, with the townspeople there to judge.
They settled in the town square and started painting. The dragon only used browns and greens, but Princess Naomi used every color in the rainbow!
And what are the colors of the rainbow?
The little blonde head speaks up, in a sing-song voice,
"Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, gold, it's a rainbow!"
She believes no rainbow is complete without pink and gold.
They finished their paintings. The dragon held up his painting and asked, "WHO THINKS MY PAINTING IS THE BEST?" and two or three townspeople raised their hands (but we think they may have been dragons).
Princess Naomi held up her painting and asked, "Who thinks my painting is the best?" and all of the townspeople clapped and cheered because clearly, Princess Naomi was the best painter in all of the land.
The dragon was sad, but Princess Naomi made him a pretty pink cupcake to take back to his cave, and this made him happy.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Good night, sleep tight.
Have a lovely day.
