A Walking Prince Is A Backwards Prince

Several readers commented on yesterday’s post that the Little Prince was facing forwards. Don’t worry, he is still our backwards prince.

The Little Prince out for a walk.

The Little Prince out for a walk.

First, don’t worry, everyone else was out for a walk, too. The Little Prince Typhoon Phooey was focused on a rabbit far in the distance while everyone else was stopping and smelling the flowers along the side of the road. Or, maybe, they were watering the flowers. Whatever.

Anyway, several readers thought maybe Typhoon had grown up and was now walking forward during group time.

Maturity? Don't make me laugh.

Maturity? Don’t make me laugh.

We would like to assure all of our readers that Typhoon steadfastly refuses to grow up and that includes walking backwards.

Why does Hu-Dad call me the backwards prince?

    I LOVE all their different personalities…and how you are able to share them with your writing! …Even better that they are all rescues!!!

    Way to be Little Prince! Don’t grow up… always play, instigate, and walk backwards ❀️
