Four Reasons Country Girls Outclass Princesses


Jamie Cearley, PhDPrincess backpacks, princess toothbrushes, princess sheets, princess pajamas, and yes, even princess underwear. Apparently a lot of little girls these days are living and breathing the idea that they either already are or should aspire to become a princess. Ugh!

Have you seen the toys these wishful princesses play with? There are dolls, whose heads look like overgrown pumpkins sitting on a fence post of a neck, whose eyes are the size of a harvest moon on a dark fall night, and whose bodies are so frail and thin they look like they need to eat a whole hogs worth of bacon just to live another day!



Then there are the electronic toys, bleeping and talking to them saying things like, “Enter your princess name …. That’s a beautiful name for a princess.” Yuck! The movies, oh my, the movies.

Suzannah, I couldn't agree with you more. Here's hoping we can influence the world for better in our own little way. Thank you for your comment.

Dave, my husband would shout out a resounding AMEN to your comments. That's one of the big reasons I like him so much. I manage our little farm full time and am very often found appearing just as you describe. Although, I would like to think I clean up good too! :) He says I do. Glad to hear there are more men like him out there. Thanks for your comments.
