Who Am I?

An old Jewish joke:
A proud young mother sees off her son to school on the first day.

"Be a good boy, my boobaleh! Be careful and think of mummy, sweetest! Come right home on the bus, honey! Mummy loves you very much, baby!

At the end of the day, she’s waiting for the bus and sweeps him into her arms. "And what did my love learn on his first day at school?"

"I learned that my name is David."
(Important to know - Solomon in Hebrew is Shlomo...and it can be shortened to Shlomi.)

One day, I'm changing Solly's diaper and I call him Shlomi.

Yael: did you call ME Shlomi when I was a baby?

Me: no, we called you YAEL!

Guess we have to work on our overuse of nicknaming, huh?

Maybe he really is a Shlomi and not a Solly.

Cute. So, so very cute! As much as I thought I would never be a nicknamer (You know, *before* kids.) I SO am now! Love the sweet photo, too! XO
