The Practically Perfect Princess

In Parenting, Reviews by Jen38 Comments

Back in 2012 my sister Nicki and I published a book together about a little preschool Princess, Rebekah Grace The Practically Perfect Princess

This cute little Princess is patterned off of our experiences as “Queen Moms” raising our daughters. Take a look at these pictures of our Princesses and you will see that she looks an awful lot like them as well.

Collectively Nicki and I have 4 daughters and have done our fair share of Princess. So we don’t want to go dissing on Princesses, but prior to writing our book, we had both tired of the “perfect” Princess routine and decided it was time for a new and much more real little Princess to make her debut.

Nicki and I have been surprised and elated by the response to our little pint sized preschooler. We have made exciting appearances on Morning Talk Shows and have been featured in online and news print stories.

We were tickled pink on the morning we woke up and were greeted with a picture of our local Police Chief reading The Practically Perfect Princess to children in the hospital!

It has been our pleasure to have the opportunity to hold readings for many, many little Princesses at libraries, bookstores and Universities.

Most importantly, we have been grateful for the support of our families as we have traveled this exciting adventure.

Perhaps you might be wondering if the Fairy Godmother in this picture is related? No she isn’t, but every family really should have one.

Anneliese is not pictured here, but she was there as I was huge and pregnant when this picture was taken. Someday when she is old enough to read this I don’t want her to feel like she missed the party, so here is a picture of me pregnant with her at one of our Princess Palooza events.

Every year to kick off the Holiday season The Queen Mommies hold a giveaway and this year an amazing blogger and my dear friend Janine of Confessions of a Mommyaholic will be kicking off the giveaway on her site. Thank you Janine!

      Thanks for the kind words Rabia!

      I keep wondering when my girl’s will grow out of Princess stuff. All of them went as Princesses for Halloween this year, including the 13 year old. She was Cinderella.
