Will the Real Mulan Please Stand Up?

Staley LOVES princesses and has for quite some time.  When she was younger, Staley's favorite princess was Tiana.  If asked, she would tell you that she looked just like Tiana.  If you are familiar with Disney princesses, you might see one glaring difference between Staley and Tiana.  (Hint:  Tiana is Disney's first African-American princess.)  And now, Staley's favorite Disney character is Mulan.  She is always telling us that she is Mulan...and I am Rapunzel and Zach is Prince Daddy.  The other day Zach and Staley were playing sidewalk chalk.  Staley had Zach draw a picture of Mulan in the driveway.  A little while later, Zach drew a picture of our whole family.  He showed it to Staley and asked who each person was.  She identified Mommy, Daddy, Adelie, Jake, and Elwood.  Then Zach asked who the little girl with pigtails was.  Staley's response?  "La La Loopsie."  Zach said, "That's not La La Loopsie.  That's you."  Staley countered with, "Yes it's La La Loopsie.  You already drew me right here" (as she pointed at the earlier drawing of Mulan.)

While at Uma and Papa's house during Adelie's birth, Staley found a princess dress and was convinced it was a Mulan dress.  She added her new tiara and decided she looks just like Mulan.  I'll let you be the judge.


My Mulan...
(and the tiara that she decided she likes better this way.)
