I can’t blame Disney, so I gotta blame Home Depot on this one…
Me: You’re going to have a purple room, right sweetie?
Daughter: Purple with.. with.. Tinkerbell!
You see, when we went to Home Depot to look at paint chips to pick a color for her new Big Girl Room, the first thing she noticed was the Disney paints display. And, of course, they have little brochures (for lack of better term) with sample rooms which are waaaaay too Disneyfied.
And my daughter saw the Tinkerbell themed one. It was purple. And she wanted her room to look exactly like that.
I had thought she had forgotten the whole Tinkerbell thing and just wanted a purple room.
Now, after the above exchange, I realized she’s had it in her head the whole time.
I don’t know how she’ll react to a purple room which isn’t filled with Tinkerbell stuff.
UPDATE: Okay, I looked, and the sample Tinkerbell room is not purple at all. I have no idea where my daughter is getting this association from. But then again, she’s three, so who knows how her mind works!
