Pretty Pretty Princess

What is it about little girls and princesses? It seems like the minute she turned 2 she became obsessed. Starting last fall she began the habit of putting on every single princess dress, one by one, and dancing around in each one for just a few minutes. There were even a couple of months where she literally didn't wear normal clothes (unless deemed absolutely necessary by the queen... aka me). It was all I could do to get them off of her to wash them! It's funny how she obsesses over one princess at a time and will watch the movie over and over and all of her play revolves around that princess for a couple weeks before she moves on to another on. It started before Christmas with Cinderella (Cinda-lella) and we've been through Sleeping Beauty (Booty), Pocohantas (Coco-hantas), Mulan 2 (she ran around doing karate-type moves for weeks), Tinkerbell, Thumbellina (Bum-lina and technically not a princess)... we've also had a few non-princess obsessions in there... especially Cars (Lightening McQueen) and Wall-E. Of course I have taken tons of pictures of her interesting wardrobe... here are a few of my favorite.
Her current obsession is Enchanted... she loves it. She wants to listen to the Carrie Underwood song every time we get in the car (followed by the Sheryl Crow song from Cars) and insist on being called Giselle... which she pronounces Driselle. Everyone on the house is a prince or princess and she refers to us all as such. She gets quite upset if we don't answer to our correct titles and if we don't call her by her correct name. This is such a cute stage and I hope it lasts a very long time!!

That's adorable! Y'know, there IS a "Driselle" in the world of Disney already. She's the black-haired "ugly" step-sister on Cinderella. :) What a cutie Afton is.

Yes... I think of Driselle every time she says it.

Is Afton your only child?!? Or is she just the only one who ever does anything cute or funny? Just kidding! I had to comment because you said I never commented on your blog...of course you said that during your four month blogging break! Hope to see y'all soon...maybe sometime this summer -

Yes... it is true it may seem like Afton is the only child... but I actually blog most about Max and Abby and had more catch up to do for her. The truly neglected child on this blog is Cole... lots to catch up on for him... maybe I'll do a little tonight! Thanks for commenting... so glad my favorite blog stalker is finally out of the closet =)
