I feel pretty strongly about letting The Child figure out who she is and what she likes. As a fully-fledged life member of the Tomboy Brigade, I make sure she does have clothes that are feminine (just not overly so) as well as my staples, t-shirts and trousers of some description. The goal is to make sure she doesn’t go all girly just to spite her mother.
BUT SHE LIKES PRINCESSES. AND MINNIE MOUSE.
This is killing me. But I’m going to
grimace grin and bear it. As far as princesses go, I much prefer Merida to Cinderella, and I hope she will, too.
