What's your name? Hayden was watching some video the other day that was supposed to teach him letters and phonics. So they get to "M" and are saying "M...mmmmm" and Hayden looks at me and says "You name begins with an 'M', right" and I said, "No, my name begins with an 'L' baby" and he's insistent, "No, your name begins with an 'M'." And I'm wondering if he means "Marie" or "McLaughlin" and he says "Mommy, M-O-M-M-Y". Did you ever think there would be a point in your life when someone thought your name was "Mommy"?
So I told Sean this story and he had a similar one. He tells Hayden a story most nights when he's tucking him into bed. They all start out the same..."Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Hayden, and his mommy and his daddy loved him so much. Then one day..."
So the other night Hayden wanted Sean to tell him a second story. Sean said no. So Hayden said, "Well, can I tell you a story?" Sean agreed. So Hayden starts out..."Once upon a time, there was a little boy named DADDY, and his mommy and daddy loved him so much. Then one day..." Too bad a three year old can't see the humor in the phrase "A little boy named Daddy".
