There was a unit on Family at his school; Zane had to bring in a picture of himself with his family. We expected him to learn about sisters and brothers. But imagine our surprise to hear Z talking to 'My sister'. Huh? Zane has long, convoluted conversations with his sister while playing. He tells us that 'his sister' told him variously random things. He even blames things that happen when he is into mischief on his sister. And Darth Maul. But that's another blog post.
"Loretta the First."
That response was so totally left field that a relieved laugh escaped before I could stop it. Once I didn't have to worry about disembodied spirits pushing me down the stairs, I was over it. Yet Zane is like every kid out there; what gets a laugh will be repeated. So he keeps talking about his sister. He's changed her name several times, however. The last time I asked, her name was Fred.
I can deal with Fred.
