The Name Game

B - "I made a new friend at Dance!"

Me - "That's great!  What's her name?"

B - "Potatum."

Me - "Well, I'm pretty sure her name is Tatum."

B - "Mrs Barb called her that, but well, I'm pretty sure her name is POtatum."

OK, sure B, why not.  There's no point arguing with an almost 4 year old about a name that clearly just doesn't make sense to her.

I am so looking forward to the day B calls that child Potatum in front of Potatum's mother.....

We have friends with a 4yr old named Mateo. My 3yr old insists his name is Mat-ato. We just spent a weekend with them, and she called him that the entire time, no matter how hard we tried to get her to say his name correctly.
