Does it make me a bad Mom that I tried just about everything to talk Ellie out of being a princess for Halloween this year? I know I know…but there are just so many great ideas and she can dress up as a princess any day of the week, right!? “You can be anything you want, Ellie, a firefighter, superhero, a monster, an elephant – any thing you can think of!” (My vote was a cat lady, complete with a robe and rollers in her hair, maybe next year). “I wanna be a Princess!! What do you wanna be, Mama? You can be a firefighter, a superhero…” My power of persuasion wasn’t powerful enough.
She hadn’t determined WHICH princess yet when we went to see Disney on Ice a couple weeks ago. Act 2 was Peter Pan and she fell in love with Tinker Bell and from that day on, the discussion was over. She was going to be Tinker Bell. It was settled. (She still considers Tinker Bell a princess).
Chris, Layla and I fit in where we could, all accessories to our little Tink ;). I happen to think Baby “Tick-Tock” turned out pretty darn cute. Fun fact: did you know the Crocodile in Peter Pan is a she as well?
While we were trick or treating, Tinker Bell kept wanting to hold my hand and would repeatedly tell me, “Peter Pan, you’re my best friend ever!” Ok, I’m sold.
Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!!! XOXO
