Toddlers say the darndest things

Elijah has been learning everyone's full names. He gets confused because he and Lazzy both have 2 middle names. As well, Dan and Eli share a middle name. It's pretty cute listening to him try to figure it all out.

Elijah: "What's your name mama? It's Befany Goodnight Robbins?"

Me: "No, that's not my name. My name is Bethany Reine Robbins."

Elijah: "Oh, I am Elijah Forrest Goodnight Robbins. That is my name. Dada's name is Daniel Forrest Goodnight Robbins."

Me: "Dada doesn't have a Goodnight in his name. Only you have that name. But you and Dada both have Forrest in your name."


Me: "Oh, ok. Almost. Except that Lazzy also has a William in his name. Lazarus William Wayne Robbins."

Elijah: "Lazarus William Wayne Goodnight Robbins ?"

Me: "Wow, let's just take a break."


  1. So funny.... Caitlin is obsessed with learning full names right now too. Must be the age. I repeat our (mine, Steve's, the girls', their grandparents, the dogs, etc.) about 100 times a day.
