A little more than a month ago, we were having the time of our lives at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in Orlando, Florida. "Dream Big, Princess" was one of the overal themes of the conference.
One of the activities we did while there was to color little shapes. The conference attendees did this at our session and the kids did it at a family breakfast. We had no idea what it was for until we arrived at the Mother's Day Breakfast and saw this.
By working together, and putting our ideas together, we can have huge accomplishments. This is a close up look at the kids' artwork that made up a small part of the literal big picture.
I want these little people that I love so much to dream big. I want them to be inspired to make the world a better place. To love and accept everyone for who they are and know that they can make a difference.
The princesses mean different things to my daughter at age 9 than they did when she was smaller but she draws inspiration from them and, to my surprise, was super giddy to meet them in real life.
Rapunzel was so nice told the girls stories of her adventures.
Elsa and Anna reminded them that the bond of sisters is strong and important. That they should always be good to each other and have each other's backs.
I'm glad there are characters that can inspire my kids to dream big. Characters that show kindness and compassion, with courage and strength. Our kids need to know that they should dream big. And love big.
Dream big, princesses. And little prince, too.
