Meet the Book Family

Anyone who is still following my blog (IS anyone still following my blog?) has probably noticed that I haven’t written anything in a couple of months. It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about – I’m thinking about what to write all day long, whether it’s for my blog, Facebook, work, etc. ┬áIt’s more that I just haven’t felt, I don’t know, genuine about writing here. It was cute when the kids were Big Brother and Little Sister, still so when BB renamed himself Book Boy. But calling them Book Boy, Book Girl, and Book Baby was just starting to feel so contrived, and I haven’t felt like writing about them.

So … let me introduce you to my real kids*:

This is Adam, age 10.

This is Allie. She’s 5-1/2. Her legal name is Allison, but her real name is Allie – because we let Adam pick her name, and that’s what he named her.

And last but not least, we have Jenny. Her legal name is Jennifer but her real name is Jenny because – can you guess it? – we let Adam and Allie name her, and Jenny is the name they chose. (Unfortunately, that was also our cat’s name at the time, but that’s a story for another post.)

Oh, and I’m Andrea, in case any of my couple regular readers hadn’t figured that out by now. But I’m not sharing a picture of myself today.

(*These are obviously the kids I’ve been writing about for the past 4.5 years, of course.)
