A Princess By Any Other Name…

posted by Catherine Connors

Emilia doesn’t really care all that much about princesses. When I told her that we were going to go see Disney Princesses on Ice,* she asked, “will they be playing hockey?“ – “No, but they’ll be skating.” “Will it be […]

I’ll Do Anything For A Tiara

I think that I’ve committed myself to running a half-marathon. Actually, I know that I’ve committed myself, because I announced it on Twitter, and we all that what happens on Twitter stays on Twitter as permanent evidence of whatever it […]
