Maybe this Cinderella thing has gone too far...


Lindy LOVES, LOVES, LOVES Cinderella. I have an old VHS copy of the movie (yes, we still have a VCR in the house, too) that I purchased many years ago to have on hand in case I was watching kids. Toward the beginning of the year I pulled the movie out for her to watch and she immediately fell in love with it. This was so fun for me because Cinderella is my fave! Lindy loves to quote lines from the movie and act out many of the scenes over and over again. She really can't get enough of it. However, I'm wondering if things have gone too far...

Last Friday when I told her to do something, she dropped her head down and very obediently said in a subservient manner, "Yes, stepmother." It wasn't an isolated event...It has happened half a dozen times since.

Hmmm...looks like I better consult with my Fairy Godmother to find a new movie.

Oh my word Lisa!!!! This is hilarious! Lindy has made me laugh out loud!! I don't know...I might be tempted to just go with the agreeable nature while it lasts...does that make me horrible??? :-)

FYI...we watch Cinderella on VHS too...we got it from Lia's cousins...and why buy a new one if the ol one is fine???

That Lindy is a good egg!!

Oh leave it to Lindy to always bring a smile to my face, but that one made me giggle too. Silly girl. Let us know what the Fairy Godmother advises.

So funny!! Welcome to the Cinderella years. FINALLY Cinderella is not her fave, she's on to other princesses and horses.

Bite your tongue...gone too far - no way, Jose. Your little Cinderella is so clever:)

But as I have stated many times before, why is it that DIsney ALWAYS kills off the mommy?????? Are we not traumatizing our little girls?

Count us in for having a VCR (three of them to be exact) and we have no clue what flat screen, DVR or Tivo could be. Tivo...don't they sing "Whip It". Ahh yes, Divo - sorry that 80s girl just can't keep quiet!

Great post, Lis!

Oh my goodness, that is a scream! When Cory was little he fell off the bed and the 1st thing out of his mouth was "Oh damn". Well Quinn and I jumped right on him and he said "Well the Ninja Turtles say it"---out went the Ninja Turtles movie and from then on we previewed all movies! Oh the things kid say...write them down!!!
