(I am playing with my nieces, aged seven and five. They decide they want to be Disney princesses.)

Seven-Year-Old: “Well, I have black hair, so I’m princess Snow White.”

Five-Year-Old: “I have long blond hair, so I am Rapunzel.”

(I have long red hair.)

Me: “So, am I Ariel from the Little Mermaid?”

Mother: “No, don’t tell me what it is.”

Girl: “Well, I’ll tell you one thing. It isn’t black like your other umbrella.”
