Wordless Wednesday - Do Princesses Kiss Toads?




During an evening shower two weeks back we found this toad outside our front door. He/She had better stay away. My daughter's life goal is to become a princess. I'm sure kissing a frog/toad has crossed her mind.

Hopefully reading Do Princesses Really Kiss Frogs? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle has helped clarify the situation. We picked up a copy at the library. Highly recommended for all princesses by nature. Watch out for the hidden dragon! Adorable, clever illustrations by Mike Gordon.

Oh, and please don't think I'm a bad mom...my daughter wasn't really drinking a whole mug full of coffee...she tries to fill her cup and winds up with a little trickle...

Very cute...sneaking a book into your WW! In our house, princesses aren't allowed to kiss toads until they get married ;).

How cute! We have two ponds close to us so there are tons of frogs around here and they make a racket in the summer.

I haven't heard of that book, but I will check it out for sure. It will pair nicely with the new Disney movie coming out this fall. Just hope my girls don't get any ideas about kissing toads! lol

Happy WW!

I have totally kissed toads. We used to catch them all summer long where I grew up. :) Cute!!

Now that is one really cute toad! I can see where your daughter would be tempted to kiss him! LOL! Hopefully she actually won't!

Be sure to stop by Roads to Learning for my special back-to-school giveaway during the month of September!

That would be so cute if she tried to kiss it!....if it makes me a princess, I might give it a shot!

Kirsty @ Gone Bananas said...

Oh My I don't think it'll turn into a prince as much as case of froggy lips. Yuck! But my Meg would probably try the same thing, she's no fear of bugs or amphibians. ;-)

Staci said...

This would be the time to lie and say that toads spread warts. (Not that I would ever tell my little one that, lol)

Sarah said...

How can you be sure unless you try it? I guess I'll always be left wondering!

Baba said...

LOL, No way could I bring myself to kiss a frog now, but maybe I would have when I was young. Kids will try most anything.

Stacie said...

Yikes that is one big toad! My son would love to catch that little guy. LOL
