Princess of Power
So Roo's been on a massive Cinderella kick lately, which I try not to mind but then her daddy bought a Disney Princess book while they were at Lowe's and it put me off the whole thing... they distill the movies down into "she's so pretty, she dreams of a handsome prince, they live happily ever after." Ick. Anyway, while I was checking out more appropriate reading material for smart, independent three year old girls at the library, I saw the recently released Best of She-Ra DVD and thought, "heck, she's a princess, but at least she has a sword!"
So now Roo wakes up every morning saying "I have the power!" and "For the honor of Greyskull!" but it's a little more palatable than "hi evil stepmother, don't I look pretty?"
Hopefully we haven't turned her into this:
