Countdown to Princess Time!
If you’ve been following along, you know that my nearly-5-year-old daughter, Madelyn and I are leaving for London tonight to attend Rapunzel’s coronation at Kensington Palace (yes, you read that right). Rapunzel is already there. (Where she was before is unclear — does she live at the Disney theme park in Florida? On the Disney cruise ship? Couch surfs from birthday party to birthday party? Perplexing.) ANYWAY. Today she was spotted in Trafalgar Square.
According to Disney:
Rapunzel enjoys the view of Trafalgar Square and poses for a photo in front of Nelson’s Column. Disney will officially welcome Rapunzel as the 10th Disney Princess character at a celebration at Kensington Palace, to take place in front of a global audience on October 2, 2011.

And we’ll be there soon enough. Leaving the office soon to take the red-eye. Madelyn hasn’t been on a red-eye since she was 1, restless and unable to sleep, with a terrible cold. Swore I’d never do that again. And yet …. Ah, the things we’ll do for our children.
