Name Change

Asher woke me up this morning to tell me, “I want to change my name.”


“What would you like to change it to?” I asked.


“I want my new name to be ‘Daniel’,” he replied.


“Why do you want your name to be ‘Daniel’?” I inquired.


Asher explained, “Because it’s a cool name.”


So, I told him, “Well, when you get older, if you really want to change your name, I suppose you can, but Daddy & I really like the name ‘Asher’, so that’s why we gave you that name.”


Asher then informed me, “Well, when I am 100 and a half, I can do whatever I want, and I’m going to change my name to ‘Daniel’…


“…and I’m going to drink iced coffee!”


  1. maybe when Asher has kids, he can name his son Daniel.

    I wanted to change my name when I was small, so my mom said, "okay!" and then called me by my new name 50 gazillion times that afternoon so that I got sick of it and told her I'd rather be Kimberly again. She pretended for a bit that changing back was not allowed - just for good measure - but I never asked to change my name again. :)

  3. haaha....shush don't tell Asher but guess what? having helped raise 5 kids he already is pretty much "doing what he wants"! he just cannot get away with it all of the time!

  4. LOL kids are too funny, one day he'll realise how unique his name is and settle down - fingers crossed!
