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.
It took us 2.5 hours! We were sitting on the curb, swinging on the ropes, eating munchies and otherwise just bored for longer than the movie Frozen while we waited to see Anna and Elsa of Frozen at Epcot Center.
They were so friendly!
Daddy said to tell them something, ask them something. But I had no idea.
Finally I said, “I like chocolate.” They laughed and told me the many kinds of chocolate that they like – the kind that Anna might stuff in her face (this is my favorite part of First Time In Forever) when she meets ‘The One.”
Anna and Elsa were giggly and happy even they had to smile and meet so many many kids like me.
A princess has to be strong and friendly and kind and smiley even when they are tired.
I want to be like that when I grow up.
I want to be fresh and happy and care about the people who come to me any time they come to me. I want to treat people who are with me always like they are the most important people in the world when they are with me.
That’s tough … but real princesses can do it.
