To Be A Princess

With the recent news of Prince William and Kate Middleton's engagement... I wonder.... what would it be like to wake up and be a princess? Even though my Daddy has called me his princess for as long as I can remember (until Ivy stole the crown), I know I am a far cry from a princess. I have laundry looming, dishes to clean, meals to prepare, and in a couple short weeks I will be doing this all with a full time job. When I am day dreaming about having a princess status- I don't have to look far to see what it would be like!

Everyday Ivy wakes up and believes she really is a princess. She dazzles herself with all things royal and is on her way. She can choose who she wants to be at any given moment and she really embraces it. She poses for pictures, gazes in the mirror, twirls, grins, and loves herself. I hope this never changes. I want to teach my princess to always be confident and to always love herself and to believe she can be whoever it is that she wants to be!

A prima ballerina?

A real fairy.... or is she an perfect angel??? :)

A twist on Princess Cinderella?

I am sure Ivy will not grow up to be any of the above.... but for now I am embracing her HUGE imagination and her love for the life of a princess!


  1. And what a beautiful princess she is! I think Bailey truly thinks she is a princess too...and I wouldn't have it any other way!

  2. When I ask Ava what she wants to be when she grows up she says "A princess...just a princess" :)

  3. She's beautiful as all of them! Ella lives in an imaginary world all the time! I have to remind her of what is pretend and reality quite often! :)

  4. Long-time reader of your blog, but first time comment! You are still my princess and will always be my princess. Ivy and Tula are beautiful and I love them, but they can't replace you as my princess!

  5. OMG this is precious. Girl afer my own heart ;)

    Man sheis gorgeous!


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
