This little person only has two aunts and both of us are named Al(l)ison and go by “Aunt Al(l)i to Torey’s girls. Ever since a little neighbor boy who adored me would shout down the street “Assalin!” I have encouraged young children to call me Ali. It usually first comes out as “A-wee” but I have no problem with that.
Torey has a dentist appointment this morning and we are watching the girls.
“Do you want to go see Jackie Boy?” She asked Willa at breakfast.
“YESH!” Was the immediate response and then, “An An?” That would be me.
“And Aunt Ali!” Torey enthused.
“Unna Ba! Unna Ba! Unna Ba!”
“And Uncle Paul!”
Torey called to alert us to all the love that’s on the way.
