I have a spoon doll, thanks to a molto kewl local antique shop. (There were loads of wonderful antique shops in Stillwater, MN, but there are a couple nice ones in this really small town of mine.)
"I don't have a name for her yet," I told William. "What should we call her?"
"Think of a book ..." he suggested.
"A book character?"
"Yeah." He paused. "How about Coraline?"
But I suggested Coraline was kind of a special name. This doll was not a Coraline.
"How about we name her after Junie B?" I exclaimed. "We can call her Junie!"
William said we should call her Jones.
"Perfect!" I said. "Because Coraline's last name is Jones, too!"
Thank you, William.
(Post trampolining outside. We're a bit frazzled.)
