Raising a Fierce Disney Princess – Disney’s Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition

I am raising a fierce child and I am so incredibly happy about that. She is baby #3 and although she is the youngest, she is definitely the most outspoken and the ruler of the family. Laurel definitely has a way about her. We hope that you enjoy our post: Raising a Fierce Disney Princess – Disney’s Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition.

She hasn’t had an easy time of things. Laurel was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery at 4 months old. She had another surgery after that. Her heart defect means that she sees a cardiologist every year. She also is a little delayed in speech and reading although her doctor tells us that is very common in Tetralogy of Fallot patients.

Laurel has had a lot to overcome and she does it beautifully. We have taught her that the hole in heart has been repaired and that means that she has an even greater capacity to love than most people do. We even celebrate Heart Day every single year.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition will soon be available on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere – 9/6 and on Blu-rayTM and DVD – 9/20. Fall in love again with the story of Belle as she captures the heart of the Beast. Looks for lots of fun extras as well.

“There’s something sweet. And almost kind. But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined. But now he’s dear, and so unsure. I wonder why I didn’t see it there before.”

I have never seen a child with more spark, intuition or creativity that my daughter. Belle’s attributes relate to my daughter because she really aspires to do all of things Belle has done in her life. Here are three ways that Laurel is just like Belle:

Just as Belle wants “more then this provincial life,” Laurel aspires to be an astronaut or a ballerina. Thankfully, she knows that she can be absolutely be anything that she wants as long as she works hard for it. This is a common theme in our house as our other children.

2. Love of learning.

Laurel loves to read books above her reading level to challenge herself. She also loves to explore other worlds to experience things like far off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, a prince in disguise and so much more. Reading has opened up more worlds for her than ever before.

Laurel finds that “beauty is found within” and has never met a stranger. She befriends kids who are by themselves on the playground or are new to her class. Laurel has never said a bad word about anyone that she knows because she only sees the best in people.
