I decided long ago that my kids would not be into Dora. She totally annoys me. I know it can be a good thing to teach your kids another language at a young age, but she just seriously bugs me. My friends tell me I'm crazy and that Mika will probably get into her around age three or so. Well, I have a plan of attack - I will get Mika into Disney Princesses! While we were recently in MN visiting friends, we went to the Mall of America and got Mika her first barbie-ish Ariel Doll.
I've already decided for her second birthday I'm going to make her a princess cake. I decided this after I made two mini-princess dolls for the joint 1 year/3 year birthdays of some friend's daughters. They were SO much fun to make!!
Obviously I still need to work on my icing/decorating skills, but it'll be fun!
