What he calls himself

What's your name? I ask him.

Me! he says happily from where he sits on my lap.

What's my name? I ask.

Mama he answers.

What's your name? I ask again.

Me! he replies.

Me is how he thinks of himself. It's who he is. No other name seems necessary to him.


  1. Love it!!! I have been practicing with DS2 since his birthday. "What's your name?" I ask. His response: 2! And if we say no, then he says 4 :)

  2. The logic of a toddler is a wonderful thing.
