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.

I am a princess fan.

Hey! I am 5-years old and a half and three-quarters. I am not sure what that means but I know I am almost 6.

I go to Disneyland once a year with my mommy and daddy. This year we went twice. The second time we went to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot Center in Disney World. I like Epcot Center better.

We can’t go to Disney World very often … it’s in Florida and we live in California. Disneyland is closer. And in some ways better than Magic Kingdom. California Adventure Land plus Disneyland has much of what Disney World offers … but not Epcot Center.

No matter.

I got something at Disneyland that is really cool … from Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.

Rapunzel’s voice changed, “I have never done this before. Look at this!”  as she turned to Flynn Rider.

Umpteen million visitors to Disneyland and many of them to visit Rapunzel and Flynn Rider and nobody had ever asked them. Till me and my daddy did.

Daddy had asked them to sign their names on his cell phone.

It was really cool. For a moment I almost thought Rapunzel was a real girl, just like me … only a littler older.

But I know she’s a princess.

I also know that daddy and I have her digital signature. Flynn Rider’s too.

Have you seen them?
