I had a great post planned today but the little slip of paper I had with all the information on it is somehow missing in my mess of a purse. Instead I am going to tell you about the time that my little princess screamed in Cinderella’s face. :)
I contacted Storybook Adventures to set up having Cinderella come to our house to help Stella celebrate her 3rd birthday. We do have a party for her with just family and she gets totally spoiled….so instead of gifts Kevin and I wanted to just create a magical memory for her! Setting up the date was so easy and although the owner said that 3 was a little young we decided to give it a shot!
I took the whole day off and sent Stella to daycare in the morning so I could scrub the dog accident spots out of the carpet before Cinderella arrived. My mom, stepmom, aunt and a friend and her daughter came too. I thought having a few people over (including a two year old) would make Stella not so shy. She loves seeing princesses but when they come to her and talk…she gets camera shy. Take a look at the picture from this post…the one where she is creeping on the princesses :)
I picked Stella up and she quickly changed into a new dress my mom gave her for her birthday. We waited by the window for our surprise to arrive. She saw Cinderella walking up to the door and was so excited but as soon as Cinderella walked into the door she kind of froze up. Princess Cinderella was flawless helping Stella become more comfortable. Luckily her basket was filled with fun ribbon dancers that kept my little ballerina happy!
Cinderella magically came with music so luckily this kept Stella happy for the majority of our half hour! Cinderella also had rags to so that Stella could clean just like Cinderella had to but that didn’t make my lovely princess very happy. That is when she screamed in poor Cinderella’s face and started crying. Back to the ribbon dancers and all was fine! :)
Before Cinderella left she gave Stella necklaces and a crown which Stella still wears around now. She will exclaim, “Oh! These are my bracelets (totally necklaces!) from Cinderella!” It is pretty darn cute!
What a great experience for my little princess on her birthday! And Stella still won’t clean the windows! :)
