Tonight, we finished a book that concluded, more or less, with two characters falling in love. Â As I tucked Lindy in, we had the following discussion:
Lindy: I’m in love with my daddy.
Tim: I love you, too, Lou.
Lindy: But he’s too old for meâ€¦ And he’s in love with someone else.
She was happy and forlorn at the same time. Â Pretty sweet. Â Contrast that with our dinner discussion tonight. Â
We were talking through names that we might have used for the girls, had things fallen differently. Â We talked about alternate tree names (Maple, Willow, Ashby). Â Oakley’s sisters decided that her name should have been “Ashtoot”. Â Ah, Oakley, she’s one high class individual in her sisters’ eyes.
Aspen and Oakley then went on to decide what Lindy’s name should have been. Â The winners?
Tongue and “The Devil”
See, there’s so much love here!
