Quotes:
"Bindi is a remarkable little girl. There are times when she astounds me. I understand that if you don’t know Bindi, or if you have a child who has stage fright, then it might seem odd that she can walk out in front of a huge crowd and talk so well, but you have to understand, she’s been in front of crowds since she was born. Her birth was filmed. She’s been comfortable with cameras and filming her whole life. There is nothing abnormal about her life. The tooth fairy brings her money for her teeth when they fall out. We have Christmas like everybody else. She goes to school here at the zoo. We have a teacher, Miss Emma, who goes everywhere with us. Bindi likes Britney Spears, and she loves the pop star Pink. She's a normal kid." - Terry, on her daughter at age 8.
