Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

My daddy once asked Ariel, “How many Ariels are there?”

I didn’t understand the question.

Ariel said, “Well, there’s only one of us.”

That’s what I thought.

What I don’t get is how Ariel can be in so many places at the same time. She can be in her grotto, or in the princess hall of fame, at the show in Fantasy land and in the parade – all at the same time.

If nothing, she definitely is pretty fast! How does she do that?

I get my picture taken with her each time I go to Disneyland and the last time I went to the Magic Kingdom in Disney World. Another thing that puzzles me is that I keep getting older but Ariel never changes!

How does that happen?

But I am sure there is only one Ariel. Daddy and I got her to sing, um, sign his baby phone.

He has a nifty little thingamabob (it’s what Ariel called it!!) that allows him to sign his screen and then he can keep it.

We got one signature at Disneyland in California and the other at Magic Kingdom in Disney World in Florida.

You can compare them. And then you’ll know that there really is one very fast Ariel.

This one was given to us in California:

You can see Rapunzel’s and Tinker Bell’s digital signature’s too!
