Getting ready for the 4th of July?

At least a half dozen times a day, Kidlet's new question is "what is freedom?"

No, not for the holiday. We are reading Disney's The Little Mermaid, over and over (and over) again. Ursula the Sea Witch takes away King Triton's freedom in exchange for Ariel's. Kind of a tough one to answer, eh? Or is it just me tying freedom up (ha ha) with other concepts? Funny how a 3-year-old can make you think about things.

I love the way she ponders things. She's such a thinker! When she asked me that question this morning, I had to call my mom to help me answer it. Maybe I've got a few hang ups about freedom too??

yeah, it wasn't all frou-frou and princesses after all (although that is a HUGE draw for the kidlet)!
