2. Wrists and/or ankles must be adorned I must admit that I can relate to this one on the surface. I truly feel a bit bare without a watch and wedding rings when I leave the house, but this is a whole other level. Miss Priss must always have something, whether it be the multiple plastic bracelets (see #1) or a silicone wrist watch or simply an elastic ponytail holder. You will not catch her without something. Sometimes we just loop the ponytail holder around the ankle. This helps when we have to do activities such as gymnastics where the bracelets aren't practical or go to Kindergarten where they are just banned. Such absurdities are simply a natural part of life for her, it separates her from the masses.
3. Must have high maintenance demands Maybe I should have labeled this one needy personality quirks. Call it what you want to, but in order to be a true in training diva, you must have a couple of "need these to get through my day" demands tucked away in your back pocket. A good example is that Caroline must always be accompanied by a stuffed animal, two blankets, and a pillow pet dolphin when she is lounging around the house or traveling or sleeping. Flippy the Dolphin and BB and Soft B (the blankets) are a staple, but the stuffed animal or animals are interchangeable. This week it may be a Care Bear, next week it may be a stuffed horse. Who knows? There is no rhyme or reason, and that is what keeps her entourage (that is us...the rest of the family) on our proverbial toes. Bedtime and we don't have Jessie's hat, oh how can we ever sleep? Going to church and we don't have Shiny GaGa, (which by the way is a very specific Care Bear, thank you very much) we can't possibly learn about Jesus without her!! See how this works?
