Say My Name

About a month ago Owen decided his new name was "Princess Leia." When my mom came into town he informed her of his change.

She told him, "But you're a boy--Princess Leia is a girl!"

We hadn't bothered to mention that fact to him. We let it slide figuring it wouldn't last.

And we were right. A few days ago I was looking through Owens treasures he brought home from preschool and found this one.

"R2D2" in Owen's handwriting, with a teacher clarifying whose it really was at the bottom.

The next one had me a little confused until after our meeting with his teacher last Friday:

"OWEN
LUK
KYSW
ALK
ER"

That's "Owen Luke Skywalker"

So we can rest easy in the knowledge that our child is now identifying with "gender appropriate" characters, so there's no need for any intervention.



***For the record he can write an E with only three cross hatch lines:


His valentine "TO MOM AND DADDY LOV OWEN"

Oh, be still my heart!

Hehehe. Owen is awesome. I definitely want to be Princess Leia, R2D2, and well.. maybe not Luke (I thought he was a winer-baby when I was a kid), so let's just say Han.

Anyway... evidence number 3,321 of you you Merrills are cool.

I love the multiple cross hatch lines on the E. Paige does the same thing. So funny!
