(Snow made a lovely cake but sadly I missed pictures of Rose’s first birthday .. I was off tending to other sims when she jumped out of the crib… sniff!)
Happy Birthday little Rose White. Childhood is a wonderful time of discovery and joy and for Rose it is proving no exception. She is a congenial child who is adored by her family.
Especially happy is Princess Caroline who has long yearned for a playmate. She is so glad that she can have fun without having to worry over her “position” as mum calls it. Despite the age difference these to have formed a fast bond. Snow and Prince are delighted to see the relationship grow.
Little Rose will never know the loneliness of being a royal. It is easy to see this friendship lasting far into the future!
Snow watched as Rose bounded down the stairs ready for her first day of school. Snow tried very hard to ignore the lump in her throat and the tears that threatened to spill from her eyes. Rose chattered away thru breakfast unaware of her mother’s heartache.
All she could think of was that Caroline was meeting her and would show her around and introduce her to her school mates. Rose was heady with the thought of the adventure that lay ahead of her. Snow considered how very much like her father she was in this. Snow watched from the window as Rose left. How had this day come so soon? She was not ready to give her daughter to the world out there.
The tears she had fought now tumbled down her cheeks as she turned in to the empty house. Prince had long ago moved back to this office at the palace. Rose would not stop pestering him long enough for him to get any work done. All of a sudden Snow felt very alone. It had been a very long time since she had felt these feelings. She decided she would call Queen and ask her out for a coffee. Queen had become like a mother to Snow … Queen would know what to say and do.
Queen knew exactly how Snow was feeling. After all she had been thru it three times before. Contrary to popular belief the first day of school did not get easier with each succeeding child. Queen embraced the teary-eyed princess. Oh how she loved this girl! Her heart smiled at the way Snow has tried so had to pull it all together .. fooling most yes but NOT her.
With a bit of coffee, a sweetie and some chats, soon Queen has Snow smiling and feeling better.
Good thing so quickly too. Snow had a way of drawing a crowd. The people of Windenburg loved her so much. Young girls snapped pictures and tweeted furiously about her every move.
A smiling Queen left Snow to her adoring public and slipped up to the counter for another espresso. Striking up a conversation with the Barista and the young boy who earnestly watched him perform his tricks with steamed milk.
Snow was going to be just fine .. they all were!
