Princess Hildegard

My kids love the Disney show Sofia the First. I think it's pretty cute too. I love that Disney has a princess that's part of a blended family. It's about time Disney.

One of my favorite things about the show is Princess Hildegard. She's the princess down there on the right side.

When I was in high school my stepdad would call me Hildegarde and I haatted it. It drove me crazy. He would call me it in public. Hildegard!!! He even would put it on my birthday cards. I finally started answering to it and slowly the nick name faded away. I didn't know that it was a real name. I just knew I hated it.

Fast forward a few years, Conrad and I started dating and I don't even remember how it came up, but I was telling him that story and what an awful nick name that was and going on and on about how awful and who would call someone that... then he tells me that's Grandma's name. Oops!! I felt like such a jerk but it was still hilarious at the same time. Great way to impress your boyfriend. By being a jerk. Come on, what were the chances??

When we watch the Sofia the First and I hear Princess Hildegard's name, I can't help but smile. Smile for my stepdad, what I wouldn't give to hear him call me Hildegard, I'd probably make him call me Princess Hildegard & for that moment with Conrad, my royal slip up.
