And Then What Happened?

I wish I had a recorder for moments like this.  My daughter’s new book, according to my daughter: “The one princess is named Belle, and the other princess is named Ariel.  The mean witch is Max and the nice witch is Caliban.”

“Caliban, huh?  Did you mean that the other witch’s name is Sycorax? Is that what you were trying to remember?”

“No, Daddy, Sycorax is the nice witch’s *helper*.”

“Oh.  Continue.”

Every time she says Ariel I always wonder if she’s thinking of the Little Mermaid, or The Tempest.  But when she says Caliban, I know :).
