Royal Adventures: Rocking the Kingdom of Rock Fatheria with the #DisneyBeauties

Royal Adventures

When Lorde sang that "we'll never be Royals," it was immediately clear that she's not yet a parent. If she were, then she'd fully realize that it's not only possible, but incredibly likely to become Royals on a fairly frequent basis - a transformation that can occur several times a week, or during some phases - every, single day. You see, my wife and I are raising a pair of daughters - each of which occasionally displays traits that reflect the true spirit of a Disney Princess. The kindness of Snow White... the heroic spark for adventure of Merida... the grace of Sleeping Beauty... the wonder of Sofia the First, the attitude of Princess Leia (hey, she's Disney now!) and even, the cleaning skill of Cinderella. Yes, that, too. It's not just one thing that represents a Princess in The Kingdom of Rock Fatheria™, but a lot of elements that come together for a series of regular Royal Adventures.
