Raising A Princess... Things I Wish Somebody Would Have Told Me!

Princess S. at 1 year

Sometimes I really wish that my child would have came with an instruction manual when she was born. Something that would have gave me a little heads up on how things were going to be because raising a princess is far from easy. I blame myself for not attending one of those royal prenatal classes while I was pregnant or reading one of those wonderful how to raise a princess books. I have so many questions that have been left unanswered and so many things that I have not experienced yet. However, in spite of all this I have managed to create a list:

All The Things I Wish Somebody Would Have Told Me About Raising A Princess...

  • That from the day she first started smiling she would try to get over on me with the flash of a smile and sometimes it would work.
  • That I would have to deal with a lot, I mean a lot of whining. 
  • That I would enjoy playing dress up more as an adult then I ever did as a child.
  • That I may have to deal with a drama princess. I should have taken a drama class!
  • That if I did not know much about cooking I should take a cooking class because when my waiter is on vacation I would be filling in.
  • That tea parties would be so much fun.
  • That I should store my closet with lots of tiaras because princess's break things.
  • That before I go to sleep there would be a million hugs & kisses.. I must say I LOVE this part.


  1. I love this post! As a mommy-to-be, I love all the post about having kids! Your princess is lovely!

  2. This is great! I love your tag line and your daughter is adorable! She is going to treasure all of these pics and posts of her when is older.

  3. I could not agree with you more on your first point. My little princess has ATTITUDE, but then she gives this huge grin and she has big blue eyes, and it gets us EVER darn time!

  4. Yes, there's lots of stuff that I wished people told me as well. I guess we have to learn as we go.

  5. Sometimes, I think all kids should have come with an instruction manual, haha! There are always some things that we're just not prepared for (even if we spend a lot of time THINKING we're prepared) and learn on the fly... and what a learning experience it is!
