That saying could not be more true for this girl. The in-laws treated us to Disneyland over Thanksgiving week and Diva was beside herself with excitement. The above picture was taken during the parade where she experienced princess overload. It was amusing to see and put a smile on everyone's faces. Notice her outfit? All.day.long Diva harassed me about getting a princess dress. A dress that alone cost $70. Seriously the girl would never let up. We tried distracting her with big lollipops and cute hats but they were not good enough. So after I said no about 10 times she finally sighed and exclaimed, "OKAY, I'll ask Nee Nee!" And the dress, crown, wand and shoes (not pictured) materialized not too long afterward. She is spoiled but very loved.
Believe it or not this picture was taken about 10 minutes BEFORE the princess dress/parade picture. It was about 6 pm and she was tuckered out and still dress-less. So determined Nee Nee pushed her way through the wall-to-wall crowds all the way up to the Bippity Bop Boutique with the still sleeping Diva. When they arrived Nee Nee said, "Honey, wake up we're at the princess dress store." She might as well have poked her with a hot stick, she was out of that stroller so fast. She lived in that dress for the next week.
This is a shot of "The Leash." YES, I leash my children in an amusement park with over a million people hustling about. Although Lil' Sis' HATED it. Know why? Because she wants to RUN. Hence "The Leash."
And just plain cuteness.
Disneyland can be tiresome and overwhelming as an adult especially carting around young children but it is really amazing to experience things through their eyes. It makes the crowds and lines and the heat (85 degrees end of November!) all worth it.
