Princess Commoner

I don't know what it is with little girls and their need or desire to become a princess at one point of their lives.

I went through that phase and now my lil' princess is going through the same thing.

What is it with princesses? Is it the way they are portrayed in all the happily-ever-after fairy tale ending in most of the books we read? Of course, princesses in fairy tales are all beautiful and they have it all but so are the handsome princes but you don't see boys desperately want to become princes.

And it's not like real life princesses are all beautiful and pretty after all. Some are just lucky that they were born with the 'Princess' title or else...

Is it because they seem to have it all? Money, clothes, the finest education and lead a high fashioned and glamour life?

I don't know about other women but I certainly outgrew my desire to become a princess once I understood how the world works. Guess I couldn't be bothered with the protocols and rules. I also love my freedom too much.

I wonder if my lil' princess would feel the same someday.

As of now, I guess I'll just play along. Wouldn't hurt being the mother of a princess once in a while. Most of the time, a princess' mother is the Queen anyway :)
