Where The Heck Is Prince Charming?!
(Don't you just love this off version of Princess and Prince?)
What’s the Deal with Disney Prince’s?
Okay, today I was chatting it up with a friend. We were talking about one of a girls most sizzling topics – MEN/BOYS and our Prince. Well, since I have two girls who love, love – love Disney films, as do I, I’ve seen most all of them to do with a Princess and a Prince.
However, I’ve realized that in the last two FairyTale based movies I’ve seen by Disney – something MAJOR has changed. The Prince in shining armor is a –WIMP, DEADBEAT, THIEF, LEECH and NO ACCOUNT, POOR, NO-JOB HAVING…cutie.
Yep, the only thing they left the Prince of today was good looks!
IS THAT MORE REALISTIC?
I’d say no way…okay, yeah in some ways. In the way that guys are human and are not infallible saviors to all that is female. Now as far as these Princesses taking a frog and turning them into a Prince…I can say it could happen. But mostly in real life – a person is who they are. They …themselves have to want to change, improve, and be responsible. So if your prospective Prince doesn’t have it together, don’t have expectations that you can change him. Give him his own time to grow up – and take time to grow up yourself too.
BUT I WANT PRINCE CHARMING BACK!
Now I can’t just say that Princess – Tiana got dogged out on the lack of a Prince Charming. Her Prince was attractive, and sort-of charming in a run around with many girls way. Rapunzel also had a cute deadbeat that she insisted on beating constantly with a frying pan to set him straight. Why couldn’t he be more charming, instead of conceited and a criminal?
I WANT IT ALL
Since we are talking Fairy Tales, I would like stronger Princesses that take charge of their situation and getting themselves saved. But can’t the Princess be strong and get the Handsome, Strong, Die Hard In Love with You, Saving…Prince Charming too?
Now Disney…go create that Fairy Tale!
Now for those out there that don't celebrate Valentine's day - my dear husband is with you. I however, will enjoy ANY opportunity to get or give candy. I also am just a loving person that likes to show those around me (friends, my man, or family) that hey - 'Somebody Loves You' nothing wrong with that. Now do I have to BUY something to say that, Heck no, lots of times I just make them something special. But you know what I do most of all? I don't expect it in return. When you love someone, you just do :-D
WHAT'S YOUR VALENTINES day FROG Prince or Princess story?
WHY don't or do you celebrate it?
AND if someone came up to you and gave you a gift - would you throw it back at them?
