That's my kid

(Overheard dialogue. SIL is my sister in law. D is my daughter.)

D: I think I have one of those canker sores on my hand.

SIL: On your hand? (incredulously).

D: Either that or I have frostbite.

SIL: You don't have frostbite. (somewhat disparagingly).


Whereupon my daughter, whose name is Frost, bit her own finger.

Matt White: inflicting his bizarre sense of humor on another generation through his progeny.

Wait--you weren't kidding. Your kids really are named "Frost White" and "Winter White"? and something else?

And Hail White.

How is school going for Frost, Matt? I am curious if her name is causing her any problems.

As to the original post, your daughter is a wierdo. :p

Please, Ryan, Hale. It's a real boy's name.

School is going good. She's in second grade, but her teacher hopes and expects that she will be reading at a 6th grade level by the end of the year. She's a smart cookie.

And no, no problems from her name. A weird name might have caused people more problems in our day than it does now, where lots of kids have weird names.

Besides, I've preemptively equipped her with an acerbic wit as a defense mechanism.

She bit her own hand? That is...totally something I would do!
