The kids’ school had a literacy spirit week this week, and on the last day they were supposed to dress up as their favorite book character. As expected, Jax dressed up as Harry Potter, just like he did last Halloween, but Em totally surprised me! I thought for sure she’d love a chance to dress up as Fancy Nancy, but instead, she chose another favorite female character–and one I love!–The Princess in Black!
The Princess In Black is girly, frilly, and covered in pink from head-to-toe when she is Princess Magnolia, but when the monster alarm rings, she becomes The Princess In Black! Em owns all three of the books in the series, and let me just say that when she chose to be a badass princess who doesn’t need protecting rather than some lame Disney princess, I couldn’t have been happier!
Plus, the costume is way cooler.
So proud of you, Em, for doing something different and for wanting to be like somebody that doesn’t need rescuing. The world is yours, little girl! Nobody’s going to stop in your way!
Love my brave and strong (and silly!) Princess In Black!
