Little Miss made me promise not to tell anyone this, but since then, I've told like everyone I know. So, Little Miss told me that her cousins are like her brothers, that she loves being a "sister". It was so flippin' cute. She told me she wanted a sister. I did my usual nodding and smiling. Yesterday, I asked what she'd like to name her sister (this response changes often which is why I like to ask). So, she said "Sophia". Husband's last name starts with an "S" so I asked her if she thought that sounded silly to have an alliterative name. She said that wouldn't be her name. So, I asked what her name would be. She answered, "Sophia Tulip".
It does seem like family tradition to have a name after a flower as my grandmothers are and were Violet and Fern. Tulip seems too much, but what do I know.
