Scary Cindy {Sincerely 'Fro Me to You}

My now nine year old daughter has always had a thing for Cinderella.

Let's just call her Cindy, okay? Because we're like this (crossing fingers to indicate closeness).

I shared this photo last year of their first meeting:

2002, 2 years old

It made me weep. It was my hubby's first Disney encounter and I promise I saw a tear in his eye too. He even whispered in my ear, "Maybe she is real."

He wasn't kidding.

So, Cindy goes way back with our family.

She came to my daughter's third birthday party.

She proposed to my son.

She pretty much ruined the chances for the "other" princess':

She convinced Santa to deliver this costume on Christmas morning:

I like to refer to this picture as "Scary Cindy."

The look on her face is, well, scary.

And just think: I have another daughter, recently turned two, with her first princess light-up shoes. It's like a nightmare, only with pixie dust.

{Just a reminder: The 'Fro will be replaced next week with the S.W.A.K. Carnival}

Cindy and Belle are my two favs as well. Love the Scary Cindy pic... truly a classic!

You know, having just 2 boys, I think princesses would be much preferable to superheros and transformers running around the house. :)

Very cute. :)

Tammy said...

Ahhhh, the magic of the Disney Princess! It was truly Magic when my daughter met her first princess.

I love scary Cindy, she is a doll!

I have a thing with Cinderella also! ;)

I'm kind of glad I don't have any little princesses yet. Guns and cars and such are sometimes easier than Barbies and princess costumes.
I liked Jasmine as a little girl 'cause she had cool hair :) None of my brothers ever wanted to watch Cinderella with me :(

Everyone DUCK "Scary Cindy" has a wand! :) Even scary she is still a beauty. So cute!

To me, the look on her face isn't nearly so scary as the unnatural color of the wig!

Cheri-Beri said...

So cute!! I can't wait for next week - my hubby's birthday is Feb. 12 :-)

Carolina Mama said...

Brings back sweet memories.

Okay, Kristen, working on the "Fro" - my computer pics only go back so far. One day I will shock you.

Tonight I attempted to pull and old pic off of Facebook and lost about an hour or two there.

Have fun at BlissDom!! :)

Muthering Heights said...

She's certainly the most intense Cinderella I've ever seen!

Jenny in Utah said...

Cinderella has ALWAYS been my fave, too! I just didn't have all those adorable gowns to wear when I was a kid - lucky girl!

Larger Family Life said...

Perhaps she's just tired of being out till all hours?


The Mommy said...

Scary Cindy is TOO cute! My daughter (almost 3) loves the Disney Princesses. She's never even seen a Disney movie, but she can name them all.

ProlificMom said...

At least you have a princess. My oldest daughter wouldn't let me put bows in her hair at the early age of 6 months. Now she just wants to go for the skater boy grunge look. I wish I had a scarey princess. :-)

Carol @SheLives said...

My daughter spent two years of her life dressed like Cinderella. Her grandmother made her two dresses so she'd have something to wear while I washed one. I am so not exaggerating. Two years. Then she switched to the Little Mermaid.

I have lots of funny Cinderella stories. But that scary Cinderella? Girl, that is definitely scary!

Upstatemomof3 said...

Oh that is too funny! Personally, I am a big Jasmine fan. She is my favorite (no diss to Cindy though). Hubby doesn't think Baby Sister will have a princess phase (how ignorant of him!!!)

Bubba's Sis said...

LOL - I guess even Cinderealla zones out from time to time! Too cute!

Happy Mommy said...

My girl also loves Cinderealla. I think all little girls love princesses!

Jerralea said...

I love the pictures! Little girls and princesses go together like ... us and blogging!

Valarie Lea said...

Ya know I am so glad my girls never liked this stuff. They liked to dress up but Disney princess stuff was just not that big of thing back then.

Jenn said...

Love the "scary" cinderella! She looks like she had a bit too much Christmas candy!

Patois said...

Cindy definitely has the best duds. I like angry Cindy best. It's like she has Mr. Potato Head's angry eyes.

MonsterMama said...

Just started reading your blog but wanted you to know that - you make me smile! Thanks for sharing.

Robin said...

We don't see much of "Cindy" or any of her sisters around here, but lots of scary Bionicles and Transformers!

Have FUN this weekend. And that's an order!

Bahama Shores Mama said...

Can't wait to see which CIndy Girl (think Spice girls) your youngest becomes. MUST BE UPDATED!

Thanks for the laugh.

Putting the Best Thing First said...

Scary Cindy lost her shoe again didn't she! Too funny! I love it.

Veronica said...

Girls and their princesses! Scary cindy is too cute!

Sandy Toes said...

Oh how fun! My girls love Cinderella!

There's a lot of talk of Cindy and Belle and princesses in our family too.

Kimm at Reinvented said...

I always knew you were a princess! Now your daughters are inheriting your royalness.

kelliebean said...

Scary-ella, indeed! :) Cinderella was my middle girl's favorite, too.

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

Too cute! Have fun at Blissdom!!

Debbie said...

I just wanted to comment that this is my first time posting on your meme.

I found your blog through another blog I regularly read, I just wish I could remember who's blog it was. Anyway great post. Wait 'til you see some of the dress up stories and pictures I have to show.

I can't wait for each week to post anew. I love your meme because it gives me a chance to post old photos that occurred before I was blogging.


Heather said...

So funny! Looks a little like Zombie Cindy, no?
