Sophie Names Her Children

Sophie wants to be a mom when she grows up.  This has been a consistent and unprompted response to "What do you want to be when you grow up?" since she was itty bitty.  Yesterday, as we walked home from church after her primary program, she made her plans more specific.

"I want to be a mom with four girls and four boys," she said, as she showed me with two hands.  I wanted to tell her how crazy and exhausting that sounded, but I bit my tongue, so as not to crush her dreams.  "And I know what I want to name them, too."

Here's how it breaks down...

GIRLS:  Shylit, Noggins, Allison and Millie
BOYS:  Thomas, Roberto, Michael and FoulGroan

Ohhh, what a beautiful family! I see she is going with the traditional spellings of Shylit, Noggins and FoulGroan. Good move, I hate when people get too creative with spelling.
