A Little Princess

Once upon a time, in a castle far away, there lived a beautiful princess named Sophie. 
This princess wore a crown of rare jewels on her head 
and carried a crystal wand in her hand. 
The wand was used to help her grant the secret wishes of her adoring subjects!  
The princess herself had a secret wish though. She dreamed of one day going to a ball. 
Okay okay, so maybe it wasn't quite the "ball" she wished for, but Disney on Ice has got to come pretty close, right?!?!?
Friday night, I took my sweet little princess to see Micky, Minnie and the rest of the Disney gang! 
Thanks to my Mother-In-Law who surprised us with last minute tickets, my baby girl and I had a night out on the town!
 Sophie was so excited and could NOT wait for the show to begin. With it being two hours long though, I wasn't too sure how long she would actually sit. But to my surprise and amazement she did fairly well. 
By the time intermission came though, she was getting antsy!  
A bag of her favorite treat totally did the trick. Yes, my girl LOVES her some cotton candy!
I totally caved and spent $12.00 on that sugary stuff, but at least it came with a cute foam crown for her to wear;)
She looked so super cute sportin' that new crown, that it almost made spending that much money on bag of cotton candy worth it (smile)!
And as I sat there, next to my precious little princess, I looked over at her sweet face and was once again reminded that "Dreams Really Do Come True!"

HOW sweet! But I'm still on the floor from the $12.00 cotton candy! We probably would have caved, too, but that just seems SO outrageously priced, makes me a little sad. But glad that you & your princess had a great time at the ball! I am sure she was the belle!

What a special night for you two. It is sad that they overprice everything at these events. Every mom and daughter should get to have a magical night like that.

do you realize that YOUR dream came true, too? you enjoyed a night out with a little girl you prayed and prayed for! i'm so happy you had a fun night out - and even happier that someone gifted you with tickets (so that you could justify the cotton candy expense!).
