I am NOT a LLAMA!
Gabe had a friend over yesterday who (either inadvertently or on purpose, I don't know which) called Lana, "Llama".
It's actually not that far a stretch from Lana to Llama. Although many people mispronounce Lana's name like beginning of the word "land" with an "a" on the end, her name is more correctly pronounced like the word "llama," only exchanging the "m" sound for an "n" sound.*
Do you suppose more people would say it right if we changed the spelling to "Llana"? (Or, you know, that might lead to her being called "Yana," which would just be ridiculous.)
At any rate, after several instances of being called, "Llama" by Gabe's friend, Lana had had enough.
Which is when I heard her yell something that I really never expected either of children would have a need to yell across our yard, ever ~ namely,
"LISTEN TO ME!!! I. AM. NOT. A. LLAMA!!"
It gave me a giggle.
*we choose to pronounce her name this way because it was the way she, herself, pronounced her Vietnamese name, which was "Lan". We just westernized her name by adding the "a" sound on the end.
