Are you suffering from Disney princess overload?

Like many moms, my kids went through thankfully a short Disney movie phase. I've never been a Disney fan. Walt was a rabid antisemite and refused to hire Jews to work in his park, so I was brought up as a Disney skeptic and it's pretty much stuck throughout my life. But my kids did get some movies as presents during their toddler and preschool years. The Girl went through a short princess phase, but never was obsessed with any particular Disney princess character. But we had a neighbor across the street from us in CA that was the most obsessed Disney princess child I've ever seen. Her parents rolled their eyes and hoped it was a phase, but it sure was a long phase.

Tonight I was over at Jenn's blog and read the freaking funniest Disney sendup I've ever seen. It is BRILLIANT. Don't miss reading this.

I will read it, because we are totally in princess phase right now. Doesn't have to be Disney, though. My MIL made her the most gorgeous homemade princess outfit you ever saw, and that's the favorite. But she has cinderella nightgowns and panties, and the movie.

Oh, and...tag, you're it. My site. Right up your alley. Seriously. You don't have to, but you'll like it, I think.

Will do, Margalit! Isn't ironic that Michael Eisner took Disney through it's most successful period of time in it's history--I don't know how religeous Eisner is, but I know he is Jewish!

right now mine is too young to really get obsessed with things although she does cry when her chicken dance elmo is taken away

We didn't go through the princess stage but instead went through this weird obsession with Woody and Buzz from the Toy Story collection (I have two boys).

I was never so glad to see a phase end in my life. lol

I didn't know that about Walt D. I'm not a big fan of the parks but liked the movies as a kid.

I moved from the Boston area 25 years ago and mostly danced in the South Shore. Do you remember the Surf in Nantasket Beach? You might not if you're not old enough. Sonny and Cher played there once.

That's hilarious. Thank goodness my girl's phase was very short lived. She maybe had a summer full of the princess's and that's it.

Hi Margalit.....

Honestly, I go away for a bit (admittedly, unexpectedly extended!) and come back - and you have a nice new shiny blog design!

Very nice, honey :-)

and the Disney thing is a scream - reminiscent of Shrek :-)
