Grimm Indeed

A large part of the Cash Family homeschooling experience is just a whole lot of good old fashioned reading to the kids (Sonlight ROCKS, in my humble opinion). Just a few minutes ago, I read to Claire “Snow White” from Grimm’s Fairy Tales, which I must say is quite a different story than the Disney version. A heart-eating evil queen, and one heck of a stupid girl named Snow White. Did you know that in this version of the story, the queen came to Snow White three times at that cottage trying to kill her, dressed almost identically all three times, and the pretty little thing fell for it all three times? Did you know that? I did not until tonight.

So we’re reading this story, and Claire looks up at me a bit bewildered and says,

“Mom, Snow White is really pretty, but she’s not very smart.”

To which I emphatically agreed, and added that a pretty head isn’t so important if it’s an empty head. And to which Claire replied,

“I think maybe she was watching too much TV.”

That’s my girl, alright…

    Claire is definitely NOT like Snow White. The things that come out of her mouth amaze me for her age.
