A rose

Juliet:"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet."

I have occasionally worried that our younger daughter would have no earthly idea what her real name is.

Her given, official name is Ruth. Nobody calls her that. I tell everyone to call her Ruthie. But we call her Sissy at home. Most of Esther's friends and teachers call her Sissy. And the dog is named Rudy, which sounds a lot like Ruthie.

As I was walking in somewhere the other day I took the opportunity to carry her, kiss her neck, and coo at my almost two year old.

"Ooooh, my sweet baby. (kiss, kiss, snuggle) Are you my sweet baby? Yes you are. Are you my sweet baby?"

Pause

"NO! Roooooh-ssseeeeee"

Meh, I realize that comment sounds wrong, because both of them are freaking brilliant.
