VLF is 7 today! And I'm launching a new project...

Yes, ma'am, seven years ago I launched this lil ole blog and today I have decided to launch a new project. One that has been brewing for a few years now, but was put on the back burner due to other obligations that no longer exist. AHEM...I present to you:
The Feminist Princess Project:
How I vaccinated my daughter against the princess phase

Don't get me wrong, this is not an anti-princess project. In our home, we have a healthy princess culture. How we got there is what I want to share with all of you over a short series of videos. I hope to launch the first one in the next week.

This project stems from the countless conversations I have had with other parents, both moms and dads, who ask me how I was able to get through the princess phase (many assume it is about ages 3-5) without an actual princess phase. And I'm not one to hoard good information, so I want to share my thoughts and strategies with you!

Before I launch, I thought perhaps you have a question to ask me first. Do you have a question about raising a girl and princess culture? Email the project at feministprincess--at--vivalafeminista.com. No question is too small, silly, or stupid! OK, the only stupid question is the one not asked. You walked right into that, didn't ya?

I can't wait to hear your thoughts and address them during the course of this short project. 

Disclaimer: Just as the flu vaccine does not mean you won't get the flu, this vaccination against the princess phase does not guarantee your lil one won't go through a princess phase. I just hope it will be a healthier, shorter, and less painful phase.

Congrats on your anniversary!

And I'm eager to see what you've got in store for your Princess Project! I'm a fan of self-rescuing princesses myself.

I meant to comment on this post months ago and say how excited I am to read your thoughts on this topic. I remembered again when I saw my sister-in-law post this on Pinterest: http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/10/24/turn-your-princess-obsessed-toddler-into-a-feminist-in-eight-easy-steps/

thanks Julia! Sorry that my video skills are worse than I expected and it's taking longer to launch this project than I expected. Hopefully soon!

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
