My princess

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Kate LOVES Cinderella!  I suppose it is my fault for introducing her to the movie. I bought the movie and we watched it about a year ago one night while the boys were doing something else. However, I never imagined an obsession like this.  She asks to watch it every single day.  She sings the songs, laughs out loud and GASPS with awe everytime she sees Cinderella ready to marry Prince Charming at the end (although she thinks he is Cinderella's Daddy but that is another post).

So the other day, Kate dressed up as Cinderella and asked me to put her hair up like Cinderella's hair.  I gave it my best shot....

Then I let her watch a little bit of the movie....
 and she was completely enthralled for the 1,000th time!


In other Kate news~ she went to visit her new school yesterday.  When we moved here so suddenly last year, it was too late to apply to the Montessori school that my boys went to when we lived here previously. But luckily, she was accepted for this year.  I was nervous about the transition but she loved it when we visited yesterday.  She went right to a shelf, got out work and asked for a lesson so to speak.  It was only a "look and see" day but Kate did work the whole time and was so engrossed in the materials.  It is hard to explain if you are not familiar with Montessori...but as she was spooning rice from one bowl to another with great concentration, she looked up and me and said, "Mommy, is this a toy?"  I laughed because Kate does not touch toys~she simply does not play with them....but she would have spooned that rice for hours.  She is a Montessori girl!  Her first real day is next week! She wants them to teach her to read!

  3. absolutely princess like!! She looks adorable all dressed up and her up-do(you did a great job) looks very Cinderella.

    Glad she got into her school. We will look at Montessori school when it comes time. However we will wait til Hayden is 3 I think. I only get to do this once and so we will wait for our journey to school.
    Can't believe school starts in the next few weeks...the summer has flown by.

  5. I love this. Landree's never seen Cinderella, but she dances around singing "A dream is a wish your heart makes..." from her princess sing along. She's really infatuated with the Little Mermaid. Oh, and she always says 'that's her daddy' too! What is the deal with that?

    I love Kate's little shirt too-glad she loved school! Landree keeps asking when she gets to go to school. She loves it too!

  6. Oh, she is so precious! I love her pointing her little toes to dance! What a princess Katie Ru is!!

    I might have to look into Montessori for Sophie... Katie sounds so much like my little Sophie. She never plays with toys either! I don't know why we have a house full!

  13. Great job on the hair!!! Be prepared---Cinderella lived at our house for at least 2 years (full gown, gloves, black neckband, plastic glass slippers and tiara!!)!! Then we switched back and forth between Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty for a while!!!!

    I find it fascinating that Our China doll seems to favor all the blond princesses--looks like Kate does too--wonder if it cause they have blond moms??? Or just that Cinderella simply is the BEST--she is the ONLY princess with her very own Castle at Disney after all!!!!

    BTW have you tried the old Rodger's and Hammerstein version of Cinderella??? The one with Leslie Ann Warren was my FAV as a child). Our daughter loves this version as much if not more than the Disney one (and yes we have both the one with Julie Andrews and the one with Leslie Ann Warren!!!)!! We still play the R&H Cinderella CD in the car and our daughter knows every word to every song!!!Plus some of the local High Schools have performed this version and My daughter has sat through at least 5 live performances and each time watches in Awe as if it is her first time!!!!

    Thanks again for sharing--always fun to see what the Peanuts are up to!!!

  25. She is a beautiful! My daughters also talk about Cinderella's Daddy but not just for the princesses, they also say my husband is my Daddy and when I say that their Pappy is my Daddy they get really upset...
    We really enjoyed our Montessori experience with our older girl in NM, not so much when they were both in a Montessori school in FL but that is another story.

  30. I just love this post!! I fell head over heels for shot #4 (too cute) and #8 (despite the playdoh on the shelf and crayons/coloring book on the floor) ONLY the video captured her undivided attention!!! Kate sounds like she is going to do wonderful in Montessori school!!!

    PS still waiting for your "what I discovered post"!!! Your keeping your "fans" waiting!! LOL!!!

  31. So pretty. Kate positively glows! Libby isn't at all into the princess world. I'll be honest. It pains me. I love the glimpse of your beautiful hallway. I love it. It is cozy & classic! And as for school starting... I am giddy! Can I say that?

  32. Kate is the cutest Cinderella ever! That is my favorite Disney movie. I love the scene where the little mice sing "Cinderelly, Cinderelly" and make her a dress.

    I have no doubt that Kate will THRIVE at her new school. She looks so grown up (but precious as ever) in the pictures at the end of your post.

  33. Such a smart AND beautiful girl you are Kate! And I loooove your Cinderella "do"! It looks just like Snophie Lu's! It's a Snophie Lu Do!! That rhymes better than w/ Cinderella... :)
