My 3½ year old daughter has recently started making rather opinionated comments about daddy’s choice of apparel… and my hair cut… and my beard. If it’s starting at this age, what will she be saying when she’s a teenager? I hear you; “Be afraid. Be very afraid!”
Recently she told me to cut off my beard. Not because it was scratchy, but because “Daddies aren’t supposed to have beards.” You see, except for the Beast, none of the male leads in her Disney films have any facial hair.
