So, most of you know I am not a fan of the Cinderella story. In fact, when my girls were little she was referred to as the "lady in the blue dress". It wasn't until we took our first Disney trip that I introduced them to her. Ansley was 5 and Mia was 3. I honestly did not want our girls growing up thinking that love is a fairy tale and you have to be rescued by a prince. Now, granted I love a good story, but I felt in the developmental stage of pretend I didn't want this idea engrained in their minds. Anyway, all of that to say they have watched the movie, read the books, and loved dressing up Cinderella. Don't fret, they have had a full childhood! Fast forward to this past Friday evening. Ansley was at a birthday sleepover, so Mia had our full attention. I love spending one on one time with our girls. So we went to dinner and a movie. Her choice, Cinderella! Let me just say, Disney did a very good job of completing the story. The tag line was about having courage, being kind and being proud of who you are and where you come from. Best of all……..she wasn't' rescued by the prince! Job well done!
