I know that this is going to sound really silly, but one of my favorite things about being a mom is the fact that I have an excuse to watch all of my favorite Disney movies over and over again. I have to introduce her to all of the classics, right!?!
Of course, being a little girl, she is completely and utterly into all of the princesses. We just recently visited Disney World, ate with the princesses and had her picture made with all of them. It was so much fun!!!
I am quite convinced that I enjoyed the entire trip way more than she did!
So, anyway, where does the Teachable Moment come into play here, you ask?
William & Kate, of course!
I had the privilege of watching a real prince and princess get married with MY little princess sitting in my lap. She was beyond excited when I explained to her that they were actually real and that this was not a Disney movie. During the wedding, I gave her a preschool version of a history lesson about England and the Queen. We had fun pointing out all of the ladies' extravagant hats, and our favorite part was watching the newlyweds in their horse-drawn carriage.
Hopefully, my little princess will remember this piece of history-in-the-making for quite some time!
