Accidental Princess

I don't really direct Violet's small attention span toward princess-y stuff. If she asks for it, then fine. But Barbies are off limits in this house. Enormous knockers, tight outfits and feet only made for heels? Not my bag. Not even if she asks for it. However, I have to admit I'm glad Violet's aunt, uncle and cousins re-purchased her this Cinderella outfit they originally bought for Christmas and was later lost in the fire. Also, all Cinderellas should have blue goatees courtesy of Crayola. It really completes the ensemble, don't you think?
