ABC Wednesday: N is for...

N is for Nicknames...that's Miss Ninja to you.

When my younger daughter was 11, we were filling out an information form for school. The form had a place for given name, middle name, surname...and a place for "known as" (or some such wording.) My daughter asked what that was about. I explained that it was for people who normally go by something other than their given name. "Ohhhh," she said, "can I put Miss Ninja??" Trying to hold back great gasping guffaws of laughter so as not to offend her because she asked her question in all earnestness, I replied no, it wasn't actually for pretend names, it was for people who go by a nickname, like Bob instead of Robert, or are usually called by their middle name instead of their first name.

I still giggle with love when I remember this conversation...so adorable!! Here are some pics from that period of her life...some taken at home, some taken in Florence, Venice and England (we took a family trip that year). I chose ones that I think particularly reflect the spirit of Miss Ninja!















Now go enjoy more New posts on Mrs. Nesbitt's ABCW page!

A slightly sneaky letter N, Anne. But what a great one! The twelfth photo shows how absolutely beatiful Miss Ninja was. And I love the hooped skirt and the one where Miss Ninja is holding an owl. But why do I suspect there's a hint of mischief behind quite a few of those photos. I think it's in the eyes!
Have a good week - I look forward to your letter O!

Your thumbnail picture reminded me of pictures of my daughter a couple years ago!

When I opened the pic of "Miss Ninja", I didn't realize it about nicknames. That's what I posted today for N too. She is an adorable girl--such cute photos.
Happy wed
Ann
