Sure Disney movies are a little misleading for our young girls, planting in their heads of the day their prince will come and sweep them away to a castle in the clouds and live happily ever after. How many of us have the little girl that puts on the dress and dances around singing some love song she has memorized from her favorite Disney princess movie after watching it for the umptenth time. I think my little Miriam has really picked up on the reality part of these beautiful fairytale lives.
She was the perfect princess hostess for tea.
And the most important part of all these princess movies, the hard labor! After the tea date she got busy in the kitchen cleaning all the cups and pots. I started thinking, a lot of these princesses have learned the value of hardwork before their dreams come true. Sure they still go off to live the happily ever after stuff, but they learn that life requires work. And with that you know that it will be a happily ever after because they know you have to work to make it work. I'm almost 30 and never picked up on this trend. If my girl is picking up on the fact that life is hard work as well as can be a fairytale, then I can deal with the costumes and the pretend play. Plus, she's super cute all dressed up!
Happy 43rd Birthday Matt!
