All Hope Is Not Yet Lost

This morning, before I left, Matilda and Freya were playing "Shrek." Their motley cast of toys filled the necessary roles as follows:

Polly Pocket as Fiona.

small plastic zebra as Donkey.

red dragon as Dragon.

Calico Critter as Lord Farquad.

and Cinderella as Shrek:

Let me repeat, Cinderella. As. Shrek.

I love my children. Why do I even worry about the evil influences of Disney and the whole Princesses-are-passive-and-don't-do-anything-cool thing? In a world where Cinderella can be Shrek, anything is possible.
