We are enjoying ourselves on an annual camping trip with some hopefully-miraculously-better-than-forecasted weather this weekend (keep your fingers crossed for us), so I decided to leave you with a giveaway post while I’m gone!

Ali is becoming more of a prima donna every day.

Maybe it has to do with getting closer and closer to the age of three, which is basically a tween these days.

She’s starting to think less of her old best friend, Thomas the Tank Engine, and dream more about princesses and fairies…her world of playing with trains and cars is quickly revolutionizing into playing with makeup and dress-up clothes.

In fact, just the other night before bedtime, she looked at me with an intrigued look, started rubbing my eyebrows, and said, “Who does your eyebrows?”

Shocked, I said, “What??”

“WHO does your EYEBROWS?”

“Umm, I do?”

“Oh. Where do you get your makeup for your eyebrows?”

I don’t put any makeup on my eyebrows, but I saw this was not going to end without an explanation, so I said “From MAC and Sephora.”

“Yes, Sephora. They’re pretty, Mommy!”

Wow. And my Mom thought I was growing up too fast when I argued with her for weeks that I was old enough to wear pantyhose…at the age of 6.

Anyway, I received another movie from Prima Princessa that I knew she’d love due to this new phase of hers, and I was right. Nutcracker

Prima Princessa makes awesome ballet movies for little girls, combining video of real ballet performances, lessons on ballet moves, and videos of little girls dancing.

This one is on The Nutcracker, which I saw live several times as a child and LOVED it, even though I didn’t understand at all what was going on (WHY can’t they have WORDS in ballets?!?)

Anyway, what is so great about this DVD is that there is a narrator, explaining what is going on with Clara, the nut cracking men and the life-sized mice. It makes it MUCH easier to follow.

Ali absolutely loved it, and has been going around all week saying that her NEW favorite movie is The Nutcracker, and can we PLEASE watch it again?!?

(Maybe Clara gets her eyebrows done in the play and I just never picked up on it since I didn’t have a narrator. That would explain where THAT came from.)

Anyway, they sent me an extra copy to give away to one of you! To enter, simply comment on the post.

  1. Happy camping weekend to you! I hope the weather cooperates and you have a fabulous time.

    I love giveaways, don't I? :-)

  2. I agree with you – Ballet and opera…if you only knew what was going on it would be so much more interesting and easy to follow!
    I have heard great things about Prima Princessa but your blog was really informative. Thanks. great giveaway.

  3. Hope you guys didn't get too wet today!
    Eventhough my princess is a little too young to watch videos, I know when she gets to be Ali's age, she'll probably love to watch the Nutcracker video!

  4. The Nutcracker is such a favorite of mine. I'm due with my first baby (a girl) in a few days & I'm sure she will love this!


  5. I have 2 little granddaughters who would love this! They listen to their Nutcracker Ballet cd all year long! The oldest has been taking ballet lessons for 4 years (since she was 21/2 and is so enamored with dancing.)
