Princess Time

I find it funny how little girls seem to gravitate to princess and Barbie type items even when their Mama is not a "girly" girl and has not promoted these toys at all.   I guess Hayden did the same thing when he was her age only but with Thomas the Train.

Right now my little Laila is in full on operation "anything pink and frilly" mode.  She has managed to acquire a few barbie movies in the last few months (that we have watched at least once a day for the same amount of time).  She has a few Barbie dolls as well that she continuously plays with and I often hear her making up little stories while she is playing.

For christmas Santa is bringing her this...

Secretly, I have to admit I'm just a little excited to see her open it.  Growing up I played with Barbies for a few years and remember having hours of fun with them.    I originally purchased "My First Dollhouse" but we got thinking that she was a bit beyond that one and I'm so glad we decided to go with the bigger one.  I even managed to snag furniture for 4 of the rooms which I guess is fairly hard to get.

The other great find was at Wal-Mart the other day.  It was a little fairy outfit for $5. It comes with wings, a little skirt, wand, bracelet, ring and hair clip.  I bought a few thinking I might do Laila's birthday party in a "fairy" theme and these would be adorable for the little girls.  Here is a picture of her from the back sorry the little devil wouldn't turn around for a front on view but honestly the back is cuter.

She even got her little sister in on the act for a few minutes.

So I have a feeling I might as well embrace the "Pink and Frilly" stage as I think it will be around for a few more years.

The girls got that dollhouse 2 years ago for Christmas...they still play with it every single day...we have purchased more rooms and a lot more dolls...but it is a huge winner. I hope your "princess" loves it as much as mine do:)

That dollhouse and the outfit are so adorable. I have a brand new granddaughter and I cannot wait until she is old enough for me to gift her some girly girl items.
