Our girls love their princesses. Even our 17 month old lives them. And u refuse to let them run our lives.
We TOTALLY limit the amount of princess stuff. Princess books are A-okay. Princess toys, in moderation are fine too, as long as they are high quality - not trying to sound like THAT person but if you are going to buy my kid a princess toy I'd rather it be one really nice item and not 20 dollar store plastic ones.
The girls have ONE princess dress. Shoes or clothing with princesses, or any character, is not allowed. I just really don't like them!
Today we are on our way to Pricesses (and Heroes) on Ice. Surprisingly this was my husband's idea and he hates princess crap more than I do!
Our oldest, Mallory, is pretty excited:
Okay so it IS nap time right now. But she really is excited. She loves the princesses and has been talking about seeing Princesses on ice since the first day we mentioned it.
We bought her some glass slippers a few weeks ago and you would have thought we bought her a pony covered in kittens surrounded by ice cream with sprinkles. It was that amazing for her.
Here is some of them AT the show:
Mallory, did you like the princesses?
And my husband enjoyed it too! It really was a good show.
But he still is a little against Disney World...we're wearing him down, I think ;)
Still...I'm glad the girls got some princess time without any more princess crap coming home with us :)
And now to the Olive Garden!
