I have always admitted that I enjoy dressing Princess Lollipop in frills, pink and pretty dresses, but I knew that it was a time limited hobby :-) And it seems at the grand old age of 3 1/2 years that Princess Lollipop has decided she's a Tomboy and only wants to wear "awesome jumpers." By this she means either one of her brightly coloured tie dyed Mickey Mouse t-shirts, her Tinga Tinga Tales t-shirt or a pink t-shirt with a cartoon figure of a cute black girl (who she is convinced is herself) on the front. She throws a tantrum if these "awesome" items are in the wash and she has to wear anything else. She also insists on only wearing jeans or trousers, or in the recent warm weather shorts, skirts are a complete no-no! And dresses, well getting one of those out of her wardrobe prompts a full, screaming melt down!! This time last year she would shout and cry if she couldn't wear a dress, how times change lol.
Princess Lollipop also constantly tells us "I sound like a boy" and won't be told otherwise! Her best friend at Big School is a little boy that she bonded with so quickly the staff were convinced they must have known each other before school!! She choose a Batman logo picture for her latest sticker chart, which rule orientated (who therefore has quite firm ideas about gender stereotypes) Little Prince can't understand at all. My Frilly Princess has morphed into a Tomboy over the last few months and I'm loving this new adventure :-) I've just got my fingers crossed that she will agree to a "Princess Dress" when she is a bridesmaid at the end of next year!!
