She is appallingly cute.
Have I ever mentioned how clever I think you were to establish her identity online as the_child
? Even though I have known her actual name, and even though I am generally child-conscious as a grandparent of kids not far from her age, I can never remember her name. I think of her as the_child
, just as I used to think of Jack and Anita's grandson as R----.
Eventually she can decide how much online presence she wants for herself, under the name she chooses to use. People will know, oh, yeah, she was the_child
, and she'll deal with that as she goes on to become the_adult
. Now, while she's actually a kid, her name isn't so exposed, and that's an excellent thing.
