My little Amelia has followed suit and is completely engrossed in the fantastic wonder of Princesses. She had just barely turned 2 and during one of our weekly trips to Super Target, she was pointing towards the toy section and kept saying, "(something) Relly!" I finally let her lead me to what she was looking at and Amelia took me strait to the Disney Princess doll collection. She was trying to say "Princess Relly" as in Cinderella. I looked at her and asked, "How do you know about this?" As I recall, she had only watched Cinderella once, but clearly that was enough to make an imprint on her young mind. It's fun on Sunday's as we put on our dresses. She will sweetly say, "You look like a princess, Mama." or I will tell her how lovely she looks in her dress and she will ask, "Like Princess Relly?" Of course. Now please note that Amelia doesn't have a favorite princess, she only knows of Cinderella and thus labels all princesses and women in dresses "Princess Relly."
I know that the princess obsession is inevitable, but I was hoping that Amelia would still fascinated by bubbles and bunnies at the young age of 2 and not consumed by the commercial Disney princesses. The other day gave me hope that Amelia was still innocent and untainted from the Belle's & Jasmin's, when we had this little dialog.
Amelia: "Like a princess, Mama?"
Me: "Yes, Amelia you look like a princess."
Amelia: "Like Princess Leah?"
