Saturday night was this month’s special night for one-on-one time with Aleyah. We had dinner, she did some painting on the paint kit I recently bought her and then we snuggled up to watch a movie. I had pre-chosen A Little Princess for that night.
A Little Princess is a movie that was released in 1995 that’s loosely based upon the 1905 novel A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett. In the movie, Sara Crewe is a sweet, charming, spirited young lady. She is very smart and very imaginative.
Sara believes that every girl is a princess, and acts exactly as though she is one. As such, she’s very friendly, helpful and empathetic towards others.
I love this movie and I wanted to share it with Aleyah for a couple of reasons. First, the character of Sara is about the same age as Aleyah. Secondly, Aleyah is so much like Sara. She is very nurturing, kind, loving and she really cares about people. She is innately kind and beautiful both on the inside and the outside.I want to help her to see herself this way! I want her to know how very special she is.
Aleyah was my first grandchild. She filled a whole in my heart that I never even knew was there. She was fully conversational with adults at the age of two and she has had perfect pitch since she sang her first note at even younger than that. I want her to understand the gifts God has given her. That she is perfect just the way she is and that she is SO loved and treasured!
Yes, she too is a little Princess.
