I don't remember exactly when it was that Miranda fell head over heels in love with princesses. Maybe watching Disney on Ice last year? Or maybe when our friend gifted her a princess costume for her birthday. I was resistant at first. I told her pink alone, all the time, was extremely boring. I bought all the neutral colored wooden toys (save for the dollhouse and kitchen) and puzzles with other sorts of themes besides princesses and fairies.
Oh well. I guess it was bound to happen.
So I caved in one day - She was screaming bloody murder when I was washing her hair. She hates having her hair washed for some reason. I told her she could have a princess party for her birthday if she stops crying every time I wash her hair.
And that was how it was done.
No more crying on her part and onward to planning on my part.
Google or go onto Pinterest to check out princess parties. Oh. My. Goodness. It's insane! I'm obviously only trying to do the "doable" stuff. Maybe throw in a little something special. A princess party is only done once in your childhood (I hope!) and I might as well make it a memorable one for her.
We started with the dress, bought from Tutu Du Monde as well.
I think her favourite princess is Belle from Beauty & The Beast. She won't commit though - she sometimes says it's Cinderella. Hmmm..
