- When she first started school, I wrote her name on the inside of her lunchbox (although, apparently, not very well). Well, she was checking it out today in the van, and she said, "Mom, I know how to spell my middle name! H.I.L.J.I.M.Y. Hiljimy. LOL!!!! I just could NOT convince her that (a) it's her last name, not her middle name, and (b) there is no JIMY anywhere in her name. Finally, I had to just let it go. She'll figure it out some day!
Then, when we finally got to school, I was walking in with her. They had put salt rock down on the sidewalk, thanks to our lovely weather. She paused and examined a pile of salt for a second, then said, "Hey, Mom, look. It's snow crumbs. I've never seen snow crumbs before!" She is just too funny sometimes!
