What to Name Your Pelican {Not-so-wordy Wednesday}

QUINN: What kind of birdie is this, Mommy? (holding up his stuffed animal)

ME: That bird is called a Pelican, sweetie.

QUINN: What’s Pelican’s name?

ME: What do you want his name to be?

QUINN: Mommy name him.

ME: Okay, how about Peter Pelican?

QUINN: No, that’s Peter Rabbit, Mommy.

ME: (laughing) Oh, you’re right. Peter’s already taken. I forgot.

QUINN: Mommy forgot. Silly Mommy.

ME: Yes, Mommy’s silly. How about we name him
Patrick Pelican?

QUINN: Yeah! That’s a great idea!

ME: Well, thank you, Quinn. Glad I could redeem myself.
