Jack is now full-on obsessed with princesses. We read the program from they Disney On Ice every night before bed. I arrived at his daycare yesterday to see him cloaked in a blanket. I thought it was a cape but, alas, it proved to be a princess dress with a clip holding it together. He had been insisting all day that he was Belle from Beauty & The Beast. I’m not quite sure how Belle became his favorite but I guess she has the same color eyes and hair as him… Apparently no one is allowed to have the same favorite princess. He stole my favorite! So I am now Cinderella. That feels about right. 😛
Jack has memorized all of the Disney princesses from the show we saw. He has bestowed a princess name upon everyone at daycare. And yes, I have explained that in the stories the boys are princes and the girls are princesses; however, whenever I try to tell Jack the “truth” about anything, he pretty much rolls his eyes at me and says, “MAAAA-OHM, I’m just pretending!” (I am scared of the teenaged years.)
This morning before we left the house Jack demanded to wear a pink princess dress…of course, Jack’s wardrobe consists mostly of pants and there is not a single dress or skirt to be found. *gasp* I will have to hit up the after-Halloween clearance sales I think. We can’t be royalty without ball gowns!
