When I grow up I want to be….
I remember saying so many things, even still, I have goals of what I want to be. But when you are 4 – a princess is usually on the list somewhere.
Our oldest daughter is about to turn five and over the past couple of years I’ve read and seen so many articles about the Disney Princesses and their negative expectations, their poor relationship examples, and their bad choices. It’s nothing we haven’t heard or seen before. Some of them are quite funny.
As I grew to learn about her in real life I only looked up to her even more. Yes she had her flaws (as all people do) but she strived to maintain a family lifestyle, she became a US ambassador, and she did not give into the hype of fame.
