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!
