Stop With The Miley Cyrus Already!

Last night, as I snuggled sweet Hannah in her bed, we had a conversation that we've been having a lot recently.

"Mom, I just don't want to go to school anymore."

"Why not sweetie?"

"It's just because all the kids and all the teachers call me Hannah Banana or Hannah Montana and I really don't like it. I've asked them to stop and stop but they just won't!" (said with all the fiery indignation a 6-year-old can muster!)

"Maybe instead of being sad that they call you that, you could think of it as a good thing. That people love you enough to come up with a very special name for you."

"I don't think so. I want to change my name."

"I don't think we can change your name but what do you have in mind?"

"Sparkles. I'm going to tell everyone from now on that my name is Sparkles."

"Let me know how that goes punkin."

My Hannah has the same issue with her name! Maybe I'll see what she can come up with for an alternative, and we can head to the Social Security office together and change their names.

Sparkles and Twinkle maybe???

Good choice Hannah... It is very hard to find a word that rhymes with Sparkles.

Cindy said...

So cute. When I asked my neice if she was cute, she replied that she was not - she was a "dazzling girl." Maybe they should become penpals!!

Kris said...

That's so hard, but I love the new name Sparkles. Too cute.

Marilyn said...

I can relate. I can't tell you how many times I was called Marilyn Monroe. Annoying...yeah, but it was better than what my brothers called me..."Marnus." Yeah, that was worse.

Nicknames really are not that fun if you don't like them, pretty much my whole life all my friends called me by my last name because there were too many other Sarah's at our school. Maybe she can enlist some of her friends to start her new nickname!

Amy said...

LOL. Poor girl!!! Sparkles Johnson? Why not??

Sara said...

Yeah that could work, Sparkles!

HMM, I am going to say sparkles isn't going to work. Believe me, Hannah montana will blow over in a couple of years, though the hannah banana is a classic and I just don't see that going away for a while.

Oh My Gosh......I've even called her that. oops that won't happen again.
Give her big kisses from auntie sun, and tell her they used to call me the bride of frankenstein. I would have much preferred hannah montana, she's atleast pretty.

Andre said...

Too funny!! Where did she get Sparkles?

Lauren said...

Does she not like Hannah Montana at all? Or just the fact that she hates being called that? I love Miley hahah...I know, I am crazy.

I once wanted to go by my middle name. That lasted a day. haha
