I think I named her perfectly.


The name Sophia means wise. My 2nd daughter seemed wise to me from the moment I laid eyes on her. She is so innocent, she exudes wisdom without even trying.

Here is one of her recent stories. I found it jotted down on a folded up piece of paper. She loves to draw and write. I hope she grows up to be a famous author/illustrator. Or a non-famous one. Either way she'll be o.k. with it. Keep reading and you will see why.

On the top fold of this little homemade book it has the book's title: "The Small Prisus." That's "The Small Princess" for those of you that don't speak childrenese. O.k. I admit it, maybe her wisdom could be spread to the spelling department someday. (Oh I better not forget to spellcheck this post)

Here is the story:

"Once upon a time there was a prisus (at least she misspells consistently) in a
far away kingdom Pompae. (She got the place from The Magic Treehouse, I am sure) She had a small kingdom."

And the last line....the clencher.

"She was o.k. with that."

Don't you wish we could all be so wise?

Sweet Sophia! That is a classic and something you'll have to keep telling her so she'll believe it and be okay with it!

I love Sophia! What a great story. Some of my favorite things are to read a young child's' story, their drawings and to spy secretly when they play- it is amazing the imaginations and hilarious things they come up with.

We are thinking about either "Levi Dennis" or "Carter Dennis" for our boy...neither of which have a great *meaning* to their name...Gosh, Carter means "cart driver"...does that translate modernly to Pizza Deliver Guy? ...hmmm future looks bright! :D

I love it! Very wise. We all need to remember at times to be Ok with what we have and to recognize our blessings. Yes, I can see her as a great author or maybe having her own advice column...

Rita said...

I LOVE this story.

"And she was ok with that..."

How awesome is Sophia?? Love your girls Alice -- each and every one of them! :)

And I'm also glad that she gets her spelling from the same dictionary as Rachel...
