I was reminded of a couple of things today. One, we have clearly never explained the whole baby-naming process to our youngest daughter. Two, cause-and-effect relationships are still a little fuzzy in the mind of a three year old.
The conversation that brought about these reminders took place just after I’d explained to our little one why Goldilocks was so named.
Her eyes lit up and she said,
“So, God could have named ME Goldilocks, too!”
After pausing in thought for a moment, she added,
“But instead, He named me Remi…
…because I’m three.”
Ahhh….that explains it!
