When Luke was around age 3 and learning his last name, I used to tell him that our name was "ChaliFOUR" because there are four people in our family. I told him that before Alyssa was born our last name was "Chalithree". Yes, maybe it seems mean to do to a kid but it was all in fun. After a while (months at least) he figured out that I was kidding. However, even after he figured it out I still always stuck to my guns that our name is ChaliFOUR because there were 4 of us. He would just smile at me like I was crazy.
So for the last three months I have been dreading the topic coming up. When we talk about our last name, or when Alyssa says it, as she likes to do now, I am afraid that my silliness will come to Luke's mind and make him as sad as it makes me.
He doesn't say anything about it.
