Obsessed with the Magic Kingdom this little boy wishes to be a Disney Princess when he grows up!
What did you want to be when you grew up as a child? Perhaps it was a fireman, or maybe an artist? Kids have some pretty wild imaginations when it comes to picking a future career and unfortunately sometimes they can even be discouraged by adults who believe in the harsh realities of a world without imagination. One woman wants to make sure the creative and fairytale dreams of her son remain alive as long as they possibly can! But is she pushing her love of Disney Princesses onto her impressionable young son? You be the judge.
This woman claims her son actually likes dressing up as a princess!
Charlio Hirons, 25 claims that her son enjoys his favorite pastime of playing dress up. In fact he has grown attached to some of his favorite Disney characters and prefers to put on the fancy gowns of Disney Princesses!
Hirons has received lots of criticism for allowing her five year old son, Riley Prince to don a princess ball gown to dinner! She claims the young boy is just as obsessed with Disney’s favorite heroins as she is and believes “children should be allowed to be themselves.”
Let Them Stare
Although critics have other things to say about Hirons’ decision to allow Riley to wear what he chooses (even if it is a dress), she doesn’t seem too phased by the harsh judgements and agreed to let her child pick his own outfit for his fourth birthday. But, it seems as though young Riley wasn’t just dressing for the occasion. And, when he opted to sport the dress again to a family dinner at TGIF’s he drew lots of weird stares and speculation.
Not New to the Whispers and Glares
If you thought that this mother would cower underneath the pressure and criticism of the outside world you’re wrong. Apparently, she’s no stranger to people having opinions about what she chooses to let Riley do. She claims the first instance came when Riley was just four months old and she had his left ear pierced. Charlie said that people were even more concerned when she allowed him to follow in the footsteps of her husband, Nathan (who is not Riley’s biological dad) and have his right ear pierced as well. She claims,
“It’s really cute how much he wants to be like Nathan. A few people have said, ‘I wouldn’t let him wear two earrings. That’s for girls.’ He’d been asking for ages, though, and I’ve always said that, unless it’s something completely unreasonable, he can have what he likes.”
