Oh, the princess stuff. I try to walk a fine line but I have my own internal struggle on the issue. I'm oddly both delighted and repulsed. I want her to enjoy being a girl without being defined by it. Part of me thinks this is what 2 years old like, it's not going to have a lasting impact on her internal motivation and self image. The other part of me watches Cinderella and wonders why couldn't have she just walked out and saved herself - and why am I showing this to my impressionable child?
Clearly this is my problem, not hers. I think Cinderella Ate My Daughter will be my next read.
Moms of girls - what do you think?
