  • My Daughter Wants To Be a Princess! Where Did I Go Wrong?
    Tweet If you read my blog regularly you would know that I have 2 little girls and that would have led many to assume that we are a home filled with pink princesses. Actually nothing is further from the truth. But maybe that tide is about to turn. I have always been adamant about women thinking that they are more than a sidekick or someone needing to be rescued. I have...

  • Just Call Me Dora!
    Tweet These days my older darling seems to feel the name we have bestowed upon her as something so distasteful that she seethingly reminds us not to call her by it. Yes, you may have read many times of my post on my girls’ love for Dora the explorer (read Dora gets Mommy Niri’s Vote or Yes, I washed that shirt for more insight) but nothing prepared me for...

  • Yes, I Washed That Shirt!
    Tweet In advance I would like to apologize to all those poor people in my daughter’s gymnastics’ class for having to see the same shirt on her every single week.

  • Leave Our Dora Alone!
    Tweet It was with utter shock that I read that Dora is going to get a makeover this fall. What?  Surprised are you? So was I. I read with disgust what that change would entail.  Mattel and Nickelodeon have announced that they allow “Dora to Grow Up” this fall. Now our beloved adventure girl will become a fashionista. It makes me sick. When I was a Big...

  • Just Follow Dora!
    Tweet Recently we hosted a Halloween Party at our home and it was with much excitement that Miss J got to sport her Dora The Explorer costume. I spied a little costumed boy following Miss J around. It happened that she was not the only die-hard fan of Dora (excluding Miss B who also has the Dora bug) at the party. His mom noticed this too and confessed that her son...

  • Dora Gets Mommy Niri’s Vote!
    Tweet Never being one to fall into what is “hot” or the current fancy, I have tried to keep commercialism away from the girls. Caillou (a Canadian show) used to be the love of Jia’s life but recently Dora took that spot. Caillou still has a special place in her heart but Dora has certainly taken a larger chunk of it. I would have hoped that Bela would...
