Conversations with a 4 year old

Today we were in the car grabbing the last of our Christmas gifts for our "family/friends". While we were in the car Little Princess was telling me about her friend Aila (pronounced Ila). She was telling me how to pronounce it and spell it and that the capital A is silent. Then I told her that I had wanted to name her a similar name "Ilea". She had a very hard time pronouncing it, then she said "Mommy didn't you want to name me Sophie? and what other names?" I told her I'd wanted Ilea, Sophie, Isabelle and who can remember the rest of the names I'd went through with her daddy. Then I told her how her daddy wanted to name her Ingrid. She laughed and said "oh my goodness that's the dumbest name I've ever heard of". HAHAHA I laughed so hard and told her that's what my reaction was too! We laughed about it for a good hour. Ingrid, Ingrid, Ingrid...hahaha...but I will confess the name has grown on me and I no longer think it is so atrocious, however I'm glad I didn't give in and that we found a much more suiting name for our little princess.

Today we went to a missionary homecoming. Before the meeting started Little Princess was entertaining herself by finding letters in the hymn book. After finding some letters she turned to the back of the book in the index and said "Mommy lets find your name. How do you spell Loser?" I laughed so hard....minutes later I was still laughing. This kid is so funny.

I'm 100% sure that "loser" is a term of endearment.
