DISNEY! DISNEY!

My son loves Disney Princesses. Is that weird?

My 2 year old loves the Disney princesses and a lot of the Disney Junior shows that are geared towards little girl audiences. He is very much a rough and tumble boy, he loves sports, wrestling and other "boy" things. But he always says that the princesses are so pretty, and he likes for me to wear dresses so I can be a pretty princess too. And he sings along to all the songs on Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, and he loves Minnie's Bow-tique. (He does the same with Mickey, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Chuggington as well) A relative recently told me while my son was singing along to "True Sisters" from Sofia, that I should stop him from watching the girly shows. My son knows that he is a boy, and never has any gender confusion about the princess shows. I asked him once if he was a prince or princess once, just to see if he understood, and he said no, he's a pirate and mommy is a princess. I don't see any problem with him liking those shows. Does anyone have any boys that like these shows too?

My son was the same way, his favorite movie for awhile was Snow White. Though Sofia the first wasn't around. He liked Dora better than Degio. I don't think its weird. He is now 5 and likes Fish Hooks and Phines and Ferb, I miss him liking Disney Jr...lol.

Oh and the movie of the week in the car is Snow White. He always choose a movie of the week for the van, because on Wednesday I have to drive an hour with him in the car one way. It is almost always Disney. For THREE months, it was Aladdin.

All of my boys like those shows, lol. My oldest just turned six:) they like princesses bc they think they're "pretty". they don't try to do princess things and they're very much in to wrestling, fighting, dirt, sports, being loud/crazy and such.... They also love batman, ninja turtles, sonic and other shows.

They call me princess mommy and tell me how beautiful I look all the time:) I think they just have an early appreciation of women, lol.

My son is also the same way.  He's 7 and loves watching all the girly shows with his two sisters.  He thinks theyre pretty and loves how colorful the shows are.  He's all boy though.  He's in wrestling and loves his Legos.

There's nothing wrong with it.  Kids love ALL shows for their age and as they age, they tend to lean more toward "gender specific" shows.  Even if they don't, it's still fine.  DD's make believe friends are Jake and his whole entire crew!  LOL  She says Jake is her brother and Izzy is her sister.  She also loves Sofia and all the other shows.  Her birthday theme was Jake and friends.  I made sure that the cake had all of the characters, but she would have been fine with just Jake!

OMG That is RIDICULOUS! Dude....people just need to let kids be KIDS. My son, who is EIGHT now, loves Tinkerbell. He thinks she's gorgeous. So he picked out Tinkerbell sunglesses. I let him get them and wear them. Everyone at WDW loved them, and thought he was adorable. 

He's a boy...who likes pretty girls. What's weird about that?? Bren has NO gender identity crisis issues, he likes Transformers and pirates, but he thinks Tinkerbell is AWESOME. 

His shirt I made him! :D
