Alias.

DSC_0136

As most of you know, I have wonderful neighbors, but certainly heading the list is my friend Karey.

Karey and I share a love of needlepoint, cooking and family. Her daughter, Allison, and Dots have been best friends since they were two, and Karey and I started our Cooking Club together four years ago.

Vivian loves to go over to Karey's and play with Allison's brother, Mark, and their family's delightful, smart and well-behaved dog, Ladybug. Vivian refers to Karey as "Mark's mom."

Today when Vivian got off the bus, she immediately opened her backpack and pulled out a piece of paper.

"I color this for Mark's mom," she told me, as she headed down the block toward Karey's house and not ours.

I caught up to Vivian and asked her if she knew Mark's mom's real name.

"Allison's mom," she answered without missing a beat.

Oh, so sweet!!!

When I first read the title of this post I thought you were doing a post about the show ALIAS. I almost fell off my chair because I am slightly obsessed. However, your story was just as good if not better!

Thank you for the smile this afternoon. Vivian sounds precious.

As for Cavaliers and cats, mine are certainly not best friends but the three can coexist. The cats kept their distance from Spencer for the first year or so but when they realized he wasn't leaving they relented. Every now and then I'll catch Spencer and the kitties all lying on the guest bed together. ;-)

So sweet. There is a time in our lives where we are identified by our children. I'm good with that.
