i wish we didn't have to but when you have a 3-year-old little girl you have to- right? as i have previously stated i am sort of a princess-a-phobe and luke is even worse. i guess it is cause i am not really "girlie" and luke is scared of drama-rama make-up wearing teenagers who might never grow out of a three-year-old princess obsession. either way, she has the princess bug and for the time being i am starting to roll with it. a few weeks ago she was allowed (meaning i gave grandma the ok to buy them) to have some of those dumb plastic heals that she l-l-l-loves. by the next trip to grandma's house she had a princess dress (that amazing dress was whipped up my my mom in an afternoon, place your orders), and now she is a full on princess.
i have to say, there are some perks to this whole princess thing, for example, we told her that princesses don't eat their boogers and she has pretty much stopped that. she told my mom the other day "when i was a little girl i used to eat my boogers, but now i am a princess and i don't." princesses also have to get their "beauty sleep" so when she resists naps (usually at my parents house) she is told she needs her beauty sleep and sometimes it works.
the funny thing is that when we went to disneyland the other day with lauren and kaia we went to the princess place to meet them- velzy was pumped she really wanted to meet the princesses but when we finally got to meet them she didn't want to get near them. kaia was stoked and got hugs and talked to them all and velzy stood far away and observed. actually that is totally something she would do, plus it's gotta be weird to see them in real life after watching them on the movies. and, there is always next time, but i can guarantee she won't be wearing the dress to disneyland. guarantee it.and speaking of disneyland with lauren and kaia:
i still think it's funny that lauren and i are still bestest buddies and we have 2 kids who are the same ages and we take our oldest to disneyland during the week just cause we can. it's was only 10 short years ago that we were running around disneyland for my 16th birthday wrecking havoc on everything being annoying teenagers, and now we go visit princesses and take 3 year olds on the matterhorn. it's rad.
