Cassie + Cate enjoyed the ride down in the Queenstown gondola.
My sister’s initial reaction to our decision to name our son Benjamin Lucas Taylor was that we named him after a gross sandwich. BLT. Um, no. I mean, yes, those are his initials, but we didn’t chose those to be his initials because we like or dislike bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches. Even so, Cassie likes to talk about BLT, and she especially did while we were visiting her on the other side of the world.
Meanwhile, Cate is into saying whether someone is a boy or a girl. [Those he/she and him/her pronouns are tricky, which is what prompted this boy/girl conversation with a 2-year-old.]
Keeping all of this in mind, here’s a conversation that happened between Cate and Grandmom at the San Francisco Airport while we were waiting for our time to board the plane …
Cate: Cate is a girl. Mommy is a girl. Daddy is a boy. Grandmom is a girl.
Grandmom: What is Ben going to be?
Cate: (Thinking …) A sandwich.
Like Cassie said, hey, she’s a quick learner. Thanks, Aunt Cassie for the lessons you teach my daughter!
