I wrote Monday and Wednesday’s posts about how Lily hates princess dresses and tea parties Sunday night. Monday we went out and bought a proper tea set for Rose and look what happened.
Peer pressure, that’s what. I have no idea why seeing Rose in a princess dress drinking tea wooed Lily over to the dark side when a classroom of ballerinas in princess costumes did not, but it did!
(The talking teapot might have also had something to do with it.)
Rose still clearly drives the girly activities around here, but apparently Lily will happily play along with anything her beloved baby sister’s favorite games. She even “let” Rose watch “Beauty and the Beast” the other day– but not without a whole lot of whining about how she wished it was “Toy Story 3″, the only accepted movie in Lily-world.
I know there are people out there who hate princess stuff, but man it’s a refreshing sight to finally see the costumes and movies I bought at garage sales before the kids were born put to good use.
