This little ‘illo’ was done awhile ago after a series of thoughts and discussions between my husband and I. It has been very important for my husband and I to teach our sons chivalry, and treating women with kindness and respect. So while we were teaching our 4-year-old son why you hold doors for people and why it is important to show respect for people, I was reminded that some think chivalry is dead. That thought led me to the very dusty and cob webbed memory of me reading a fairy tale and saying to myself… “Prince Charming didn’t ask her if she needed or wanted help. I wonder if she was annoyed or wanted to see if she could tackle it by herself?”
All that to say, chivalry isn’t dead to those who are romantic. 🙂 But if you are Prince Charming and want to save your princess from hang nails, missed placed car keys, or even, (gulp) spilled milk, you may be in for a rude awakening. After all, most princesses of this day can tackle that with their eyes closed! If you want to be Prince Charming- just love like crazy and the rest is in the bag!
