Who's your daddy?

Some kids are about to start kindergarten. 

When I had daycare kids that age, I thought it was a good idea to review their parents' names. You know, just in case. 

The conversations often went like this:

Me: "What's your daddy's name?"

Little one: "Daddy."

Me:  "I mean his name."

Little one: "Daddy."

Me: "OK. You know your grandma is your daddy's mom, right?"

Little one: "Yes."

Me: "Well your grandma didn't name her newborn baby, Daddy."

Little one: "Yes she did."

When a conversation gets to this point with a preschooler, you just have to give them the facts and revisit the topic another time.

And so I'm thinking it wouldn't be a bad idea for young children everywhere to be reminded their parents' names.

Phone numbers, too.

Have a lovely day!
