"Well, Hello my name is Simon..."


Do you remember the cartoon, "Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings"?
As I lay in bed this morning, name gaming for #3, I mentioned the name Simon, and my husband ED, who must ruin every name he possibly can, immediately starts singing (in his best weird little British accent), "Well,Hello my name is Simon, and the things I draw come true..." We both started cracking up remembering how much we loved this cartoon as kids---it was definitely one of my favorites. Remembering how as a kid I used to believe that Mr.Rogers and Captain Kangaroo were actually talking to me through the TV--the power of imagination is such a gift to the little people.
For a short period of their little lives you really can create a happy, perfect world for them.

I liked the Simon cartoon and I like the name Simon. We don't have any kids yet, but my husband can ruin a name in nothing flat.
