Cinderella story needs revamping

At the AdelphiImage via Wikipedia

After being told the story of Cinderella, Miss Lou asked me "Why did she have to marry that man?"
I must admit I am uncomfortable in retelling these papy stories which dis empower women... but if three year old can see its wrong.. maybe its time to rewrite them.

I answered, "Well, She was in love."

Miss Lou looks up at me with her big blue eyes "But she only met him the night before."

ummmmmm... time to rewrite the stories definitely.

Damn straight and I reckon you get Miss Lou to tell you how the story is meant to go.

I probably should never tell her the story of how Dave and I met!
