The Naming of Firemen
In our playroom, about 7:00pm, setting up the Legoland fire station.
Me: (finding the three Lego firemen at the bottom of the box): What should we name these guys?
ST: Hmmm. I think he's Jim.
Me: And what about this guy?
ST: Oh, that's Henry.
Me: And the last guy? The chief?
ST: New York City.
Me: Ummm, New York City isn't a name for a person. It's a name for a city. You know, like a place.
ST: When I have a brother or sister I will name it New York City.
