My Little Princess's

Momma, you shouldn't have! This is the look on their faces when I presented them with their new Cinderella dresses.

I question how it happened(nothing to do with them glued to the telly 24/7) but over-night the girls discovered make-believe. They have begged and pleaded with me for the last week to wear their holiday dresses to play in. They think they are the real Cinderella dresses. I wouldn't even consider it. As I think back I have to ask myself "why not" considering what the dresses cost. Anyway, I finally caved and agreed to buy them Cinderella dresses. Just so we're clear on something I am not one of those parent's that shower my kids with expensive gifts or possesions nor bribe them in anyway shape or form for good behavior. It's expected that they will be good. There is only one ruler in this kingdom. Moy. I refuse to jump through hoops or guilted into "keeping up". Oh, where was I? So, I ran over to Target and found the most beautiful (seriously) dresses.They only had one of each dress. I considered buying the Disney dresses to save a few bucks but there was no comparrassion. This was the dress Cinderella wore! I just knew it. I was caught up in it too. See for yourself. I cry my eyes out every time I gaze at them gliding down the staircase. Ahhh, beeee-you-tiful! I can picture them in 25 years! I hope I'm around to witness it.

OMG!! What little beauties in their dresses!!! How unbelievably sweet!! I would have thought that I had died and gone to heaven to have had dresses like either one of those when I was a little girl!! You have such little angels!!! Those little dresses are worth every penny and are tons better than the Disney Princess dresses :-)

Sophie's Mom said...

What beautiful princesses! Love the dresses. Sophia doesn't much care for dress-up, but she doesn't have a buddy to dress with, or she might!

Oh, and it's not spoiling, if they're worth it, and they certainly are!

Diana said...

No excuses, no 'splanations needed...THOSE are definitely the DRESSES worn by REAL princesses. Love them...so freaky though the foreshadowing......
and what you save on useless lingerie-cause-me-too-tired means more $$$ to spend on the girls!!! Bwahahaha

D2 said...

Ugh - there should be a warning for diabetics at the top...
Not sure if I should join the cries of admiration or throw in a warning "oh boy - that's pretty darn close to the line".

But I think the picture with the glasses pushes me into the "too cute for words" corner :-)

secret agent said...

OMG, that last picture......blow it up and frame it. That is the cutest ever.
