You’re Never Too Young For Princesses

I think that Elby may be a bad influence on her little sister, Fatty Matty. It’s bad enough that I caught her out back giving Sadie a tug off her Marlboro Light but now I come home to find this!

No Mattie No! Please, no princess attire until you’re at least two-years-old. My God they start young these days.

    Wow! You got Elby down to the Lights! I thought she was going to smoke Marlboro Reds FOREVER.

    Oh you know those little girls will absolutely IDOLIZE Elby and then she really will feel like a princess.

    Unfortunately, yes, they do start early on the princess gear! My friend’s daughter had plenty of princess pink before she was even born!

    Oh if (large IF here) I have a girl, not another Sausage, I will be starting the pink in about 5 seconds.

    My 3 year old son has known the names of all the princesses since he was 18 months old thanks to his older twin sisters. He even has a favorite tiara and wand.

    I had Elby pegged for Newports.

    Scams are plotted over grams of rock. Undercover agents die by the random shots.

    So that cough the twins had a few weeks back was actually a smoker’s cough? Might be time to switch to the Marlboro milds.

    Ah, princesses!

    I have a boy. Everything in my house has wheels. Sigh…

    Too cute!

    I was trying to avoid the princess thing in our house and inadvertantly turned my 3-year-old daughter into the world’s biggest fan of The Lion King. There’s lots of roaring and pretending to fall of cliffs in her pretend play. Oops.

    She’s a doll…if she needs a good dose of anti-princess goth, I’ve got a six-year-old she-twin who at age two told the pediatrician her favorite color was black.

    I kind of take Ms. M’s lavender/violet chapeau as more Betty Davis…Grace Kelly…

    When I was a little kid my sister used to dress me up in girl’s clothes sometimes, and would even call me “Michelle” instead of Mike.

    Wow. I feel so much better now that I’ve finally got that off my chest.

    I have been keeping up with your posts, I have just been a lazy bum when it comes to leaving comments. I hope you are enjoying your week of all Elby, all the time! Obviously she is finding ways to entertain herself!

    Adorable picture – much cuter that the one I have of my son in princess attire (thanks to his older sister).

    No princess attire in this house, I have two boys, so I enjoy seeing little girls dressed up, I admit. What a cutie!

    I’m visiting from a link on Mama’s Losin’ It’s blog. Nice to meet you!

    how cute is she?
    gorgeous child.
    I’m new, just trying to find a place to interact with momma’s

    Being a princess can’t be all that bad, At least she is not dressed as a Brittany Spears inspired Bratz Doll.

    That is adorable.
    I have a 4 year old boy and a baby girl. He has started calling her “my pwincess” because she has so much princess stuff. It’s pretty hilarious.
