What's In a Name?

Before we begin our story, let me just explain how she came to have such a name. Her actual name is Genevieve. She is a life-size Princess Barbie Amiyah received this past Christmas.
Being that she is life-size, she came wearing a beautiful ballerina outfit that would fit just about any 3~5 yr. old. Amiyah, of course, had to try it on. From that day on, Genevieve's outift remained in the the closet for Amiyah to play dress-up with, she would never get it back. Genevieve, would be naked forever.
Grandma (my mom) came for a visit this week. While I was in the living room with the bean, Grandma, and Amiyah were in her room playing Dance Party.
I thought it would be a great idea to take pictures of them dancing around. So, I grabbed the camera, and walked into her bedroom. I wasn't welcome, of course. When Grandma comes, only Amiyah is allowed to play with her. Needless to say, I pleaded with Amiyah to let me in, and she was reluctant, but agreed. Sheesh!!
I sat quietly ( or I would have been kicked out) on Amiyah's bed to capture the show, only to turn and see my daughter manhandling Genevieve. So to get her to take a picture with her doll, I started asking questions. One was " What's your dolls name?" to which she replied, "Naked Thing."
My mom and I looked at each other and began to laugh hysterically, we could not believe what we had just heard, and she said it as if that was the name she had given her from the beginning.
So, I started taking pictures of her and "Naked Thing" just to see exactly what she was doing.
I think she was trying to dance with her, but then it turned into wrestling. Still cracking up, my mom and I started making up a story about what it looked like was going on.
So, to end, I have decided to blog about the Adventures of Naked Thing, and this is the very first one. Enjoy!
