Sometimes I wish she...

Liked princessess!!!

I never liked how the whole princessess things changed, I did like them but now that they are everywhere is annoying.

All toys and decoration has them, little girls wearing the dressess everywhere and little girls being princessess, I just couldn't take it anymore.

So I made sure my dd would't be a princess, she would just be a normal kid; I never called her princess and discourageed family from doing so.

Now my dd is 6 and has no interest in princessess, she likes them but is not obsessed over them, when we g oto Disney and they call her princess she responds: "I'm not a princess, my name is ___" and then she asks why do they call her a princess.

Now, we are trying to get her a new bedding set and when I asked her what she wanted she says:

It could be:

butterflies

rainbows

bunnies

dinosaurs

leprechauns with pots of gold.


This is the only time I had ever wished she liked princessess, it would be so easy;  a Sofia de First or Frozen comforter and move on!!!

What have you avoided with your kids that has come to bite you in your "donkey"?

Mine was similar. She would watch the princesses for a minute but other things she preferred. She never asked for princess stuff and would loose interest quickly if she had it.
She is her own person and as she gets older it is pretty cool.

My DD went through a small princess phase. Then she was into fairies for a while really learning to read well. Then she discovered the children's version of Dracula in the bookshelf. Turns out that she is far more of a ghoul than a girl.

Yep. That sounds like my DD. Bring on the horror movies. She also loves stuff like Doctor Who and Supernatural.

The good news for me is that she is definitely not about the drama like a lot of girls her age (15-16). She had a boyfriend and he was more of a friend. They broke up and she wasn't upset - she could dissect what wasn't right. I don't know what I would do if she was more dramatic, probably go crazy.

We are Doctor fans here, you should had seen her watching the weeping angels for the first time, you can tell she's nervious but loving it, as soon as it was over, she asked to watch it again... And I see an angel statue and can't blink. Lol

By any chance do you still have the book or remember the exact name? I'd love to get it for my dd.

I cannot find the book. I think it got packed away with the kids books that we wanted to keep. I did look on my library's site. There was one that had a familiar sounding title - Dracula and Other Vampire Stories by Eric Kudalis.

Some other books she loved were Vampirates series, Harry Potter, anything Roald Dahl, Eragon and Lord of the Rings. Obviously these weren't all when she was 6, but on through 4-5th grades. She still loves the Vampirate Books. As is now onto Dean Koontz and Stephen King, especially Stephen King.
