Emerson decided to take her trusty lion with her for Show-and-Tell on Friday. This adorable pink lion, given to Emerson by the Hamricks (good friends of Mimi and Birdie), sits on Emerson's dresser, next to her sound machine, and wards off all monsters during the night. She watches over Emerson while she sleeps and makes sure no monsters lurk around her room; at least, this is what we tell Emerson!! Friday morning I asked Emerson what the lion's name was and she came back with Pinky. Jokingly, I said, "What about Lily the lion?" She replied, "That's a great idea, Mommy!" So, Lily it was, until about 20 minutes later when we were in the car on the way to school and she said, "Mommy, I want my lion to be named Zoe." So, we still haven't settled on a name for Pinky/Lily/Zoe, but I'm sure one of them will stick one of these days. Or maybe it won't, remember, we ARE living with a toddler and things can change at the drop of a hat or rather, with a lion's ROAR!!
