While at the library last night, M. and C. were playing with some toys while S. and I were looking at books about ten feet away. Another little girl, who looked to be 4-5, ran up to them and asked, “What are your names?”

M. gave her a look for a minute like, “Who are you, asking me questions?” but finally got happy and said, “I’m M. and this is my sister C..”

The girls chatted about names for a minute and then M. pointed to us, “That’s our mommy and daddy. Their names are Mommy and Daddy.”

Both S. and I had to look away and laugh. When I looked back, their new friend was looking at us smiling, too, as if she understood the joke.
