Just a little snippet from the living room this morning.
Evey: that’s not Elmo, it’s a bone.
Ben: Elbow! (with excitement and pointing at the TV)
Evey: Benny, that’s not Elmo, it’s a doggy (with a giggle)
Evey: Benny! That’s not Elmo, it’s a turtle (with exasperation)
Evey: MOM! Benny keeps calling everything Elmo!
Me: stiffling giggles…I know sweetie, he’ll stop in a couple of months
Evey: with annoyance…okay…sigh
Now about that whole not using their real names thing I posted a while back. Here’s the thing. I can’t do it. I like their real names too much and I keep having to go back and fix posts where I put it wrong. So we’re going back to the real names. Alrighty then.
