Things Children From Large Families Understand

Kid (who has 2 siblings): “My mom always calls me the wrong name.”

Me: “Let me tell ya something, kid. That’s just what happens to parents who have more than 2 children. They can’t keep everyone straight. I’m one of four, and my mom did the same thing.”

Kid: “Yeah but it’s not just that she calls me by my siblings’ names.”

Me: “I know. Let me guess. She also calls you by your uncle’s name. Or her best friend’s name. Or your cousin’s name.”

Kid: “She calls me by the dog’s name.”

Oh. Yikes. That’s rough.
