Last night at dinner Collin informed me he was changing his name to “Jerry Thompson”.  I asked him why and he told me “You know, it just sounds cooler”.

Later in the evening in the car, on the way home from an errand I asked, “So, Jerry Thompson.  Are you glad you made it out a little this evening?” and he replied with a matter of fact and amiable chuckle “Oh, Mom…. you can just call me ‘Jerry’.  And Raja is now called ‘Stacy’.
