The Princess, The Pea, and The Lou

Once upon a time Lou’s kindergarten class was studying fairy tales. As the culmination of the unit, Friday was Favorite Fairy Tale Character Day. Can you guess what Lou was?

She was the pea from “The Princess and the Pea”. It was completely her idea. She even designed the costume herself, drawing on her experience as a plump turkey to become a plump pea.

When Lou got to the second question on the second page of her character study (the one concerning the character’s problem), she faced her own dilemma – was the pea actually a character? She paused for a moment and then reasoned that while the pea itself doesn’t have a problem, it helps solve the problem, so it must be a character. Whew – “homefun” crisis averted!

They all (the princess, the pea, and the Lou) lived happily ever after.

The End.
