Little girl waves "bye" to everyone at the mall - The Feed Blog - CBS News

Too Sweet for words- the look on her face when a few don't acknowledge her is so sad.

That is too cute....love her dress too. I always try to say hi or wave to little kids if they say hi first or wave. I remember my kids at that age and how sad they would get if they said hi to someone and that person didn't acknowledge them.

What a cutie cuteness! I love how almost everybody smiled and waved. I bet all the people who did had a little smile on their faces or in their hearts when they got to the bottom of the escalator.

Great video, No Kudzo. Thanks for sharing it. That little girl is one cutie.

In our family we consider waving a lost art. So we are the people who wave at places like Disneyland. This involves specific waves for specific situations. The "Look! Mickey!" wave also involves jumping up and down. The "Miss America" wave is reserved for rides on the Carousel as you circle round and round. There is the "Stop! We're Holding Up The Train" wave. The "Queen Wave" is given when you walk into a restaurant and pass people at their tables. Waves get points if they are returned by characters. If a tourist waves back you get double points. If you get a blast on the horn from the Monorail Pilot when the Monorail goes past you get a churro.

That little girl would fit right in!

My daughter loves to say hi to anyone and everyone. When somebody doesn't say hi back she quickly says "She didn't say hi." All I can say is, no she didn't.

That is too cute! I grew up in small town Texas and most people waved, even to travelers in their cars.

THAT was adorable!!

DS went through a "bye" phase when he was younger, too (I guess most kids do??). I love how kids just assume everyone will wave back, and how many people actually do and get excited about it! Makes me smile.

BTW, Dew- I love the waving game!

My oldest daughter loved to wave to people, most gave her a wave back and it would always make her happy. I was probably the one most upset when people didn't return the wave. This seemed to encourage her to want to talk to people, which can always be a mixed blessing...

For last years Christmas photo with Santa the girls wore very fancy dresses. The oldest marched through the mall enjoying all the smiles and compliments on how pretty she looked. While in line she turns to a lady standing next to, not in, the line and says, "do you like my special Christmas dress?" The lady looks at her, doesn't say a word and then turns her back. My daughter was quite perturbed that the lady didn't acknowledge her and she asked me why.

I told her in a rather loud voice that "sometimes when people grow up their souls die and they turn into crusty, mean adults who don't appreciate things like confident little girls in pretty Christmas dresses." My daughter responded, "I hope Santa brings that lady a new soul since hers died and made her all crusty."

...that's my girl, lol.
