The Princess Era

Vahelduseks üks postitus inglise keeles.
Lühidalt: Riinu armastab olla printsess. Riiete valmisest ka.

The Princess Era has arrived our house. The Era got a definite kick from her friend Marta, who has a house full of different princess dresses. Mermaid dress, Cinderella dress, Snow-White dress, just a princess dress - you name it, she has it. What a dream for a little girl! Now that Riinu has been going to daycare at Marta's, her princess-affection has certainly increased. As soon as she gets there, she quickly changes into one of the princess-dresses. And when I go to pick her up, she always tells me, who was what. Like: "I was Cinderella today, Marta was a Mermaid and Leenu was Snow-White". It is very important to her.

So, the other day we went to a second-hand store, to look for a shirt, but found this instead:

She just LOVES this dress. Well, most grown-ups would probably agree that this is not a very pretty dress. And it is very uncomfortable. Riinu, however, wants to wear it all the time and everywhere. So I let her wear it at home, not all the time, but quite a lot. Let her have her princess-time. I can't remember having such a Princess-era in my childhood...

She started caring about clothes when she turned 3. At fall I noticed that she didn't want to wear pants any more. Only dresses. OK, we have many dresses that have been inherited or given to us. I have only bought a few. But now she is getting even more picky. Any dress doesn't do it any more. She prefers party dresses, not nice and modest-looking pastel-tone dresses that I would choose for her. It is getting difficult, I have to admit. And I realize that this is only the beginning... The teenage years are still to come!

This here is her real party dress, which I like as much as she does. That's a dress she does not wear every day! The picture is taken on Riinu's 3rd Birthday last May.

Ta võiks selle printsessikleidi lasteaeda kaasa võtta?
(She could take this dress to school, too?)
