Yesterday I was Mrs. Potts, Eric was The Beast, Ella was Chip (the teacup), and Emma was, of course, Belle. This is not completely out of the ordinary in our household as of late. The day before I was the Queen, Eric was Prince Phillip, Ella was Baby Aurora and Emma was, you guessed it, Princess Aurora.
Other names of ours include: Angelina Ballerina, Polly, and Mr. & Mrs. Mousling; Ariel, Flounder, Prince Eric…mommy has yet to receive a part here…I’ll keep you posted; Rapunzel, Prince Eugene, Baby Rapunzel and the Queen; Cinderella, Prince Charming, Baby Cinderella and the fairy-god-mother.
Emma certainly keeps us on our toes in keeping up to date with the most recent princess change…it happens in an instant. Thankfully she has become quite good at informing us when she is contemplating the next princess change which has given us an entire extra minute to adjust to the right characters before our next play is in full swing. Our “plays” are really nothing but normal day to day happenings in our house in which we simply refer to one another using our princess names. And yes she does remind us if we forget to use the proper princess titles…even in the middle of praying before bed sometimes.
Oh we love our very imaginative little Emma, never a dull moment!
*Quick cute sidenote regarding Ella’s given character of Chip the Teacup: We have a book in which Belle and Chip are described as best friends….just makes me smile knowing that is what Emma was thinking when she named Ella for our “Beauty and the Beast” play. ;)
And no she has not seen all these movies, only Cinderella,Tangled and just recently The Little Mermaid…the others she has only seen little parts of the songs here and there from clips we’ve shown her or books we have. She’s a little sensitive to scary parts so we’re waiting to show her the other full movies till she seems ready.
