Little Miss Bluejay July 14, 2010

In order to protect their identities, I often refer to my family members using codenames. My wife is Mrs. Bluejay—in real life, she’s Mrs. McCoy-Bluejay. My son is Bluejay Jr.—in real life, he’s Bluejay the sixth, we call him “hex.” My daughter is Little Miss Bluejay, after the Roger Hargreaves Little Miss series. You know, Little Miss Chatterbox. Little Miss Bossy. Little Miss Naughty. In real life, she’s all of those. Plus Little Miss Trouble. But today she’s also Little Miss Birthday. Three going on seventeen. How someone so small can have so many opinions, such a sense of self, such an idea of who she is and what she wants is above me. Little Miss Bluejay, you’re the cat’s pajamas. Pink pajamas, of course. With matching bottoms and tops. And not too tight. And with short sleeves so you can see your bandaids.
