I'm Beth

Pin It

We've been working on getting Elizabeth to say her name when asked the question, "What's your name?" (cause you know, it would be awful if she got lost, and couldn't tell anyone her name.) For a long time, she would say "Beth" - it's much easier to say than than Elizabeth.

Somewhere along the line, someone asked her, "What do you want to be called?" Her Response: "Beth!"

So, we've had exchanges like this recently:
Is your name Elizabeth?
Is your name Elizabeth?
Is your name Beth?

Just yesterday, this exchange occurred. Then, Jude (having overheard the conversation from another room) called to her and said, "Beth... Beth!" Her expression was priceless - she smiled, her jaw dropped open, then dropped even more. She ran out of the room excitedly, looking for her dad.

So there it is. I'll still call her Elizabeth.
