I can deal with Cinderella pretty well.
My girls are fascinated with her. For that very reason I refuse to buy any Disney movies. But Kenzie is smart...too smart...her wheels are always turning. One day she said, "YouTube will play Cinderella right?"
Yes, you can watch Cinderella on YouTube. In 9 minute segments.
What is it with little girls and princesses? Disney is a mastermind I swear.
Reasons why I can handle Cinderella pretty well:
My girls beg to help me clean the kitchen floor so they can sing "Sing Sweet Nightingale"
Cinderella is dressed pretty decent and modest I'd say.
Cinderella's stepmother reminds me of my piano teacher when I was 5...and also my mean 2nd grade teacher.
I am totally inspired by Cinderella's color choice of work clothes. Who doesn't love brown and blue together?
My girls know "Lucifer" means bad bad bad...and he's always out to get you.
I often get requests to sing "No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, a dream that your wish will come true" I'd say those are pretty positive lyrics.
And when Cinderella Barbie loses a glass slipper somewhere in the big toy box, there is always an easy explanation to the girls why it must be missing. She is the only princess barbie allowed to be missing a shoe in this house.
so this is love...hmmmm hmmmm
