Jack is learning that everyone has more than one name. He knows his: Jackson Louis Chittister.
“I got two O’s,” he says, “Mommy and Daddy got one O.” This is true.
In stories, he asks what the characters’ names are, and if we don’t know, I’ll try to get him to make them up. He’ll name them after his friends.
On Monday, our sick Sassy cat was lying on the couch. He was so very nice to her, and brought Sassy some “tea” in a cup with a saucer. He said it would “make you all better”. Then he asked, “What Sassy name?”
I said, “Sassy Chittister.”
His eyes got wide and he smiled, “Like me?!? Chi-ti-ser?!?”
