Belen has always been scared to death of all the characters at Dland. Whenever we see a character she says how she wants to say hi to them and take a picture with them, but when the time comes for her to go near the character, she freezes up with fear. I totally understand this because I am.... I mean.... was, the same way. So anyway, we were in toon town a week ago and she spotted Mini walking towards a photo-op. Belen took off running after her screaming "Mini!! Mini!! Stop!!" I, of course, ran after Belen. So there we were running through toon town chasing minimouse and I knew that once we caught up to her Belen would chicken out and just want to stand and stare. So, we caught up to mini at the photo-op and got in line to meet her. The entire time in line I was giving Belen pep-talks about how nice mini is and how happy she is going to be to see Belen, etc. Well, it was finally out turn and Belen ran right up to her and gave her a big hug! I was so proud of her for not being afraid. Am I jumping the gun to think that maybe she'll like Santa this year?
