Oh, Cinderella…

We watched Cinderella a few days ago and now my daughter is ALL ABOUT that movie. Shes always fishing it out of the DVDs and bringing to me. When I try to put a different DVD in, she says No! Sssss MORE, PEAS! (That means “More Cinderella, please.”)

Cinderella is not my personal fave of all the Disney princesses, although she’s much less wishy washy than I thought she was. Cinderella is not all content with her lot in life, even if she doesn’t do much to change it. She’s even a bit sarcastic upon occasion. And at the end she’s really doing all she possibly can to get downstairs and try on that damn slipper. My favorite part as a child was always the bibbity, bobbity, boo and this part (along with the mice, I suspect) is also my daughter’s favorite part.

Anyway, we’re on the second showing of Cinderella today alone. Oy.

I hope as she gets older she’ll like Mulan. She’s by far my favorite Disney “princess”.

  1. Well, at least she said “please”. Good girl 🙂

    Have a lovely day! 🙂

    P.S. We got to watch Mulan back in my Asian Studies history class in high school. Cool film 🙂

  2. My niece was addicted to Snow White. AKA ‘No White. I wonder what triggers that love for one particular princess? I was a Cinderella girl myself. I even played Cinderella in the kindergarten graduation. Oh those sparkly slippers still get me.

  3. Annmarie — I always all about the fairy godmother, myself. LOL.

    Tez — What an odd thing to show in a studies class! Totally cool, though. I want to go to your school.

  4. Cinderella was always one of my mom’s favorite Disney movies, but I always was more partial to Beauty & The Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and Aladdin. Today I think all Disney movies suck unless Pixar is involved though.

  5. Right now it’s Belle here and Beauty and the Beast – over and over. But for the looongest time it was “Baaahbie Punzo!” a Barbie Rapunzel DVD she wanted to watch a dozen times every day with singing dragons and not a bit of resemblance to the actual Rapunzel story.

    Also, we’re big on Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) because, “her dress is pink!”
