"Out of the Mouths of Babes"--A continuing series

June 2008
Haley-age 3 1/2

Haley got a new Ariel t-shirt recently and asks to wear it almost every day.  Even though he lets her watch The Little Mermaid, Colby isn't the biggest fan of this Disney princess because she's got an attitude with her Daddy in the movie.  So, today in Wal-Mart, an elderly man saw Haley (with the shirt on of course), stopped, bent over so he was eye-level with her, smiled, pointed at her shirt, and asked kindly if she liked Ariel.  She shrugged and responded, "Yeah... but sometimes she's a bad example to me."  His smile dropped as he look puzzled, didn't know what to say, finally stood up and just patted her on her head.  I felt bad for him.
