Back in November, Nora watched Cinderella for the first time...
She wore a dress of Dot's that has been dubbed Cinderella's pink dress so she felt quite special.
Since that day it has been her number one obsession.  She loving refers to it and the main character as "Rella."
Good thing we already had a book of it so she wouldn't ask to watch it 100 times a day.
(or at least it helped appeased her when we had to say no).

She was lucky enough to get a hand-me-down Cinderella dress that started being worn over her clothes everyday.
Aunt Angie sent her some socks to complete the look.
She has seen the movie a number of times now (because I can only say no so many times), but I think we will hold off on the new live action one until it is rentable.
However, she got to go see a performance of Roger's and Hammerstein's Cinderella at Jimmy's school and wear the dress out in public...
Let's just say the dress is getting a little worse for wear and I am afraid to throw it in the washing machine and ruin it.
It needs a good handwashing.  Maybe I could make that chore part of the game.
I have already taught her to clean the floors and "be Cinderella."
  One day she came in from outside with black stuff all over her lips and hands.
Apparently, she had really been committing to the part by kissing our firepit and thus getting cinders all over herself...
She also got a Cinderella doll from Mimi for Christmas who has become a dear friend...
And of course, every princess needs a prince or knight around...
She should never be lacking in those around our house.  We are much more used to those. 
This whole princess thing is new to us, and I am loving it more than I thought I would.
