Princess Power

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

My mom recently sent a big box of hand me down books for the kids.

Included in the loot was a Disney Princess pop up book.

In theory, it was intended for my daughter. But she's only 3 months old and didn't exactly protest when my son claimed it. (He'll be three next week.)

He absolutely loves it.

I've read the book about a hundred times in the past two weeks. He's memorized all the princess names and talks about it nonstop.

I don't particularly care if my son wants to read about princess. (Or play with dolls, tea sets or any other traditional girl toys.)

But I was kind of curious how the princess phase was going to play out.

I think I got my answer today.

He just spent 45 minutes flipping through the pages of the pop up book intently kissing each and every princess on the lips.

He only stopped long enough to tell me that Jasmine is the prettiest one.

I'm thinking the princess book is just his preschool equivalent of a Victoria's Secret Catalogue.

My two year old loves his sister's Cinderella Barbie. She has the longest legs to ninja kick everyone with and flies through the air with the greatest of ease. In his garbled language he calls her 'Super Princess'...

Boys are interesting, to say the least.

I think you got it all figured out in your last sentence. Gotta love a boy who already knows which princess he thinks is the prettiest.

LOL @ the comparison in your closing line!!! My son is now 7 and in the "girls have cooties" stage, darn it. I'd prefer him to be kissing princesses!

Love it!

too cute! but you are a cool mom to not insist he play with gender oriented toys. I think they need to see both sides of the story, so to speak (and practice kissing too :)

hahaha. I've never really cared what gender toys my kids play with, they just seem to follow whatever nature put into them. I have heard that any gender who shows love (really love it; not just love to play with it) towards a toy will be a better nurturer as they grow older.

My youngest boy has eleventy billion stuffed animals he cannot live without. He is 9, and I know this phase won't last much longer. kinda makes me sad.

So he goes for the raven-haired beauties, huh? Love it! (My daughter is perplexed as to why Jasmine is the only one whose belly button you can see. I'm so not ready for that conversation.)
