A Case…of…Blended Identity…


Okay…I admit it…you don’t have to twist my arm…my grandchildren are the…cutest…smartest…cleverest…kids in the world…
Whew…I feel so much better…with that off my chest…you just don’t know how painful it has been…keeping that secret…
Spoken…like a true…grandmother
Seriously…my granddaughters are pretty cute…and funny…so…I thought I’d share…this little story with you…and…feel free to share your own story…in the comments…more smiles for everyone…
We all know that children…usually…only hear their middle names…when they are in trouble…and…the youngest…age 3 now…had become quite accustomed…to hearing…Elizabeth…added after her name…one day…while watching…Curious George…get into another of his…situations…she yelled at him…from across the TV…George Elizabethyou better not do that
So…we knew…Elizabeth…is the name…you are called when you are in trouble…no matter who you are…
Well…that was cute…and…we thought…that was that…she got a little older…and…understood…Elizabeth…was part of her name…along with her first and last…she also learned her older sister’s middle name…Kate
And…for some reason…known only to three year-olds…she decided…that her middle name…was…Elizabeth Kate
Not to be outdone…her older sister…age 5…added…Elizabeth…to her middle name…well…fair is fair…so…we now have two…Elizabeth Kate’s
So…we’re now sharing middle names…maybe…we should hyphenate them…hmmm…that might work…and…maybe…sharing names…could be only the beginning…maybe…they could start sharing toys next…
Yeah…right…when this little piggy flies…
Jane Elizabeth Kate
