I tried to keep her away from princesses as long as I could (for different reasons, like how ridiculous the plots and values are), but being around girlfriends who love princesses was an insurmountable obstacle. She is a princess at heart–and in costume. She LOVES wearing dresses and skirts, and curtsy. She loves role-playing, and I love seeing her happy.
She hopped into a friend’s Snow White dress and joyfully jumped on the trampoline with Cinderella.
…princesses all tired out.
I have since then bought Shiloh two princess dresses! Tiana and Belle. Every mother wants their daughter to feel like a princess.
