Norman, The Girl Elf

Meet Norman, The Girl Elf

I know everyone loves Elf On the Shelf, but I’ve been really reluctant to purchase one for various reasons, namely because it’s Christmas time and it’s just one more thing to complicate an already busy time of year (and let’s face it folks, I am NOT a type A mom)… However, Sophia’s relentless harping has finally worn me down and seeing as she is the last of our true believers, I had no other choice. So, without further ado, I present Norman, the girl elf – named after her papa. I asked Sophia if she would’t rather name her Norma which is the feminine of Norman. Here’s how it went down:

Me: “So, what do you want to name her?”

Sophia: “Norman”

Me: “But that’s the name you picked out if we got a boy elf… This is a girl elf. Wouldn’t you rather name her Norma, that’s the girl version of Norman.”

Sophia: “No, her name is Norman. That’s the name I want. Besides, girls can have boy names too.”

Me: “Like, Bailey.”

Sophia: “Wait, what!? Bailey is a BOYS name?”

Me: “Yeah.”

Sophia: “No it’s not. It sounds like a girls name – It’s a girls name.”

Me: “Well, Norman sounds like a boys name.”

Sophia: (with a sound of finality) “Her name’s Norman”

So, there you go folks – Meet Norman, The Girl Elf, because girls can have boy names too…

About Corinne McNab

I'm a forty{something} mother of four wonderful, clever, and witty daughters, wife to an AWESOME husband for twenty{something} years, formally a SAHM (for 4 yrs), but am now a working mom who tries my very best to be a "good mom" - some days are better than others. On my down time, I love to read, find crafts, recipes, and decorating ideas on Pinterest, bake and, currently, learning how to use my new camera. I'm loyal to a fault and rock head stubborn. I'm a lover of aprons, lip gloss, and all things pretty... My blog is a journal of the wild, wacky, and weird things my kids do and everything else that falls between from the perspective of a not so domestic house wife.
