Mommy has a name
The other day, Shawn and I were chatting and not paying attention to the people around us. Our two-year-old was trying to get our attention:
Scarlett: Shasha. (Pause) Shasha. (Pause) Shasha.
Me, to Shawn: Is she trying to say my name?
Scarlett, nodding her head: Shasha.
Shawn, pointing at me: No, that's Mommy. You call her 'Mommy,' and what do you call me?
