Leila quote of the week

Leila: "Mama - have you had trials and tribulations?"
Me:  "Um, no...not really."
Leila:  (sighing) "I've had my share."

{Some background info...}
Leila is slightly obsessed with "The Princess and the Frog" and we listen to the soundtrack just about everyday, and watch the movie a few times a week.  One of her favorite songs is called "Almost There" ....here are the lyrics:

"Almost There"

Mama! I don't have time for dancing!

That's just gonna have to wait a while

Ain't got time for messing around
And it's not my style
This old town can slow you down
People taking the easy way
But I know exactly where I'm going
Getting closer and closer every day

And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
People down here think I'm crazy, but I don't care
Trials and tribulations, I've had my share
There ain't nothing gonna stop me now 'cause I'm almost there


I remember Daddy told me: "Fairytales can come true"
You gotta make 'em happen, it all depends on you"
So I work real hard each and every day
Now things for sure are going my way
Just doing what I do
Look out boys, I'm coming through

And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
People gonna come here from everywhere
And I'm almost there
I'm almost there

There's been trials and tribulations
You know I've had my share
But I've climbed the mountain, I've crossed the river
And I'm almost there, I'm almost there
I'm almost there!

Can you even imagine the trials and tribulations of a 3 year old!? Not getting apples sliced the way she likes? Bathtime too short? Funny girl!
