Many of you who know me are aware of the fact that I don't do the "princess" thing very well. Some would say I oppose it to an extreme. I won't pontificate on gender stereotypes or over intellectualize regarding the social pressures, or relationship norms inherent in being a "princess" because I know many people don't agree with me. And that's ok!
But, my daughter has been asking for a tutu for several weeks now. I struggled with indecision and uncertainty about how to proceed (similar to my internal battle regarding Santa). So I made her one. A rock and roll tutu! And she loves it. That way she can express herself in dance and can play imaginatively, yet doesn't need to be a "princess" and marry a "prince".
Works for us. For now at least, until December. lol
