Has anyone else ever thought about this?

With all the snow we have had my family has had a lot of inside time lately. And we have watched a lot of movies. And in this house that means a lot of Disney movies.

And I can't help but notice that most Disney movies do not have mommy's! What's wrong with us?!? You have Jasmin, Ariel, Cinderella, Belle, Snow White and I am sure I could think of many others that do not have their moms. So either there is no mom at all, a mother that dies, or evil step mothers. And now that I think about it even the prince in Cinderella doesn't have a mom so I am sure there is even more princes that don't have them either. Hmmm. I find this strange. I guess if the mama was there to save the day (like we do) then it would take away from their wonderful prince? And I think this might be why our little girls are such "daddy's girls"(or maybe I am trying to think of an excuse why my little girl wants her daddy for everything all the time, haha). I also think this is why kids have bad feelings about having step parents. Don't get me wrong...I totally love Disney princess movies...I just kept thinking about this today. Maybe these movies will make my sweet little girls realize how fortunate they are to have me. Even when I make them do stuff they don't want to :)

What do you all think about this?


  1. Oh my goodness, you are right... That is terrible!!!

  2. Wow, how has that never occurred to me? Crazy!

  3. Wow, you are right. I thought of another one- Anastasia. All she ever wanted was a mom too! Even Simba in the Lion King didn't have a mommy- and then his dad died, remember? Hmmm, i wonder what that is all about!

  4. Very true! Simba did have a mom though. But, yes his dad did die. Danielle, I think you are right about the whole "mom to the rescue thing." If there were moms in all of these situations then most likely the princess would not be with the prince...maybe because mama doesn't think he is good enough for her precious girl. :) Great topic!
