While spinning this morning, in her purple tiara she suddenly stops and looks at me and says "I can't be a princess I"m not wearing a pretty dress." Ali happened to be in jeans today to go to Mama T's since it's a gorgeous day and they'll be running around outside all day. Yes I could put her in a dress, but she falls every two minutes so pants make more sense.
I tried to tell her that she can still be a princess in pants but she was insistent that she couldn't be a princess without a pretty dress.
I realize that it's really an issue of popular media but I feel as though I may have neglected something in the portrayal of women. Of course, she's 2, so it's not like I can start throwing around Gloria Steinem or anything like that, but really, there has to be a princess somewhere who wears pants.
