What's in a name?

This morning while waiting on the very late school bus, yet again, I was blowing bubbles with my daughter and quizzing her on the things any 4 year old should be well versed in by that age. After running through numbers and colors, I asked her what her name was. She replied with her first name. I congratulated her on a job well done, and then asked again what her first and LAST name were. She again answered correctly. I then asked her what my name was.

She replied, "Mommy."

Then I said, "yes, baby, but what is my real name? My first name?"

"I dunno," she said.

"My first name is Leigh, baby, can you say that?"

"You name is Wee," she replied. I giggled.

I then asked her, "What is my last name? Can you say mommy's first and last name?"

"Wee Needs-A-Doctor!"

Gotta love that miniature smart ass sense of humor. Just what the doctor ordered to fix my funny bone!
