Em: Mom, I sent a balloon to Noah.
Me: Oh Em, that is so sweet!
Jason: Em also wants to tell you something.
Em: I also wrote “I love you, Noah and Rosa” on another balloon.
Me: Who’s ‘Rosa’?
Em: The baby that died before I was born. I named her ‘Rosa’.
Me: ‘Rosa’? (Spanish accent in my head…or picturing Rosa Parks on a bus…)
Em: Yeah, Rosa.
Me: What if it was a boy?
Em: No, it was a girl. Her name is ‘Rosa’.
Me: What about ‘Rose’?
Em: No. It’s Rosa.
Em: Mom, I changed it to Rosie. I like that better.
Me: (Thinking, like Rosie O?! $%^&)…Okay, Em. Sure.
Me: Did you know before Noah was born you wanted to name him ‘House House’?…
For those of you that are lost…House House is just a random name Em, while she was 3, thought you could name a human! As far as ‘Rosa’ goes, the only place she’s heard that name is the character of a dog in a book, but there is no significance…she just got it in her head that it should be the name of the baby I miscarried. I thought I was the most random person, but alas, Em wins!
