I had heard fabulous things about Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Little girls visit Cinderella's castle and are transformed into princesses--isn't that every girl's dream? But I wasn't sure if Arden would care anything about it because she was not into princesses at all. I'm pretty sure the only princess movie she has seen is Beauty and the Beast!
But, we decided to go ahead and book an appointment for her and Santa was gracious enough to provide her with a beautiful Cinderella dress (Santa thought Cinderella would be Arden's favorite princess because she wears her favorite color--blue!)
Arden was super excited on Christmas morning when she found out we were going to Disney and that she was going to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! But a few days before our trip, mommy started to get worried. It dawned on me that Arden has never even had a haircut. What if she flips out when it's time to sit in the beauty chair and have a
stranger fairy godmother-in-training fix her hair!
Needless to say, Arden LOVED every minute of her experience. She didn't want the traditional Fairytale Princess look; instead she opted for the Disney Diva look---complete with blonde "extensions" (she wanted yellow hair just like Cinderella).
We decided to let Arden keep her Cinderella hair up for the entire trip. I definitely had to doctor it up each morning with lots of hairspray and bobby pins. You can imagine what her hair looked like after a week of not washing it!
I'm pretty sure that we've played "hair dress-up" every day since we've been home. She asks me who I want to look like and gives me suggestions like Princess Aurora, Jasmine, and Belle :) She absolutely loves playing "hair dress-up" and "princess dress-up"!
Arden, we are so glad you loved every minute of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! You were a beautiful princess Cinderella :) We just want you to know that you don't have to be all made up to be OUR beautiful princess--we love you JUST THE WAY YOU ARE! You are beautiful to us--inside and out and we hope you never forget that. We love you sweet Arden!
