I asked for it...

In 1981, my parents gave me a copy of "Charlotte's Web" for Christmas. I read that book until the edges of the cover were worn and dirty. I still read the same copy aloud to my class every year. Because it holds such memories for me, I decided that if I had a daughter, I wanted her to be named Charlotte. (That, and the fact the Charlotte sounds really good with Chermela!)

It figures that the birth of my daughter coincides with the release of "Charlotte's Web" in the movies and on DVD.

My 3 year old cousin, Gage, was coming to visit the twins for the first time on Sunday morning. He asked his mom (my cousin Jenn) before they left: "When are we going to go see Charlotte and the pig?" Judging by the way Gavin eats, I think Gage got it right. :)


  1. Haha! I hadn't heard the story about Gage asking about Charlotte and the pig! He is too cute. He really seemed to enjoy holding Charlotte and "the pig" when he was over your house.

    Love ya!

  2. How funny! This would really explain all the barnyard grunting that Gavin does.
