Grow up and blow away


Elyott: "mom, what was your name when you were little?"


Me: "i always used to wish it was 'Sally' but it was 'Carolyn' just like it is now"


Elyott: (giggling in disbelief) "mom! That's a grown ups name!!"


Me: "well if you want to get technical, it's more like a 55 year old lady bus driver's name."


Elyott: (completely ignoring how right i was) "I wonder what my name will be when I grow up..."

that is so great. i always wonder how my kids names will sound when they're older...

a 40-year old woman named parker?
an 80-year old woman named macy?
a 70-year old man named oliver? (okay, not so weird.)
a 65-year old man named sawyer?

I always wished my mom would have been super classy and named me Barbara. All my dolls were named Barbara after my beautiful ballet teacher. Alas, it was not to be. My name was, however, almost Artemisia after my great grandmother. Holy shiz man I dodged some real bullets. Thanks for letting me write a novel on your blog.

PS YOUR HALLOWEEN PARTY WAS AMAZING!!
