What Comes With a Name Change

So Libby has decided to be Beth.   She informed me of this in a very off hand manner on Thursday afternoon.   It's been interesting.  She still very much responds to Libby, but she grins and blushes when we remember to call her Beth. 

I asked her yesterday if she had told her friends at school and her teacher that she wanted to be called Beth now.  She said no.  She would just stay Libby at school and be Beth at home. 

"Why do want to be Beth at home and Libby at school?" I asked.

"Because you're my family." She answered. "My family listens to me."

That made me smile.  I'm glad she feels listened to and loved.  : )

I love her logic and it is just gorgeous that she feels so secure that she knows that her family will listen to her.

The best gift is often the Abercrombie & Fitch we buy ourselves. Not to be unappreciative, but I love shopping way too much to believe someone (even with Dolce & Gabbana Sunglasseslist in hand) could ever do it as well as I do. When buying for ourselves, shopping can be a high. I’ll admit I’m addicted, but don’t think I have a problem. I know I know, the first step on the road to recovery is to admit you have a problem, but I just don’t see Christian Louboutin Boots that way. I’m content being a shoeaholic, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
