AKA Mater

Sometimes Avery likes us to call her Mater
{you know, like tuhmater without the tuh!}
sometimes she goes by other names...
could be other book or movie characters, family members, pets...
but she especially likes Mater

I told her teachers about this when I dropped her off last Tuesday.
They said it was the sign of a good imagination and they would just go with it.

Here is the conversation from when I picked her up:

Mrs. Lindsay: Well, Avery was Mater part of the day. The other kids kindof looked at her funny when she said her name was Mater, but then they went with it.
Me: OK
Nicholas' Dad: Is that your daughter?
Me: yes
Dad: Nicholas was playing with her when I picked him up. I asked him what his new friends name was. He looked at me and said her name's Mater!
Me: Well, her name is actually Avery...but sometimes she likes to go by other names {SMILE}

Do you think Nicholas' Dad thinks we're nuts!?
Oh, well...I'm sticking with Avery being super imaginative & creative!

Tomorrow is Avery's first long day at school...
wish us (& Mater) luck!!!
