Miss5 has decided she wants to change her name.
Here's how it went down...
Miss5: Mum, can people change their name?
Me: Ahh, I don't really know. Maybe they just want to (plus some shed words said in my head)
Miss5: Is it easy to do?
Me: (Insert massive, dramatic sigh....) I don't know, I think there might be forms to fill out, and then you'd have
to tell everyone your new name and they'd have to try and remember it.
Miss5: Ok, so let's do that.
Me: (Insert confused silence)....What do you mean?
Miss5: Change my name
Me: Right.....so, ah.....what would you like to change it to?
Me: You can't change your name from Liv to Liv
Miss5: Yes I can
Me: No, you can't
Miss5: Yes I can if you get the forms and I tell everyone to call me Liv instead of Liv
Me: (Insert confused silence plus shed words muttered in my head plus massive dramatic sigh)
Miss5: So can you do that for me please Mum?
Me: But you're not changing anything. Liv is already your name
Miss5: MUM. SERIOUSLY. I'M CHANGING MY NAME
Me: MISS5. SERIOUSLY. YOUR NAME IS ALREADY LIV
Miss5: MUM! I'M CHANGING MY NAME TO LIV!
Me: (Insert pause long enough for me to realise I can not possibly win this one)
Fine, whatever. I will call you Liv from now on.
Miss5: Good, thanks Mum (walks off with victorious smirk, advising her siblings she is now called Liv instead of Liv)
I don't even know what happened, but somehow I feel like she won.
