The other day we were at an indoor jungle gym and found out another little girl about 7 years-old named Cora was there too. My Kora was thrilled. She’s pretty outgoing so she went right over to her and said, “Hi, I’m Kora too.” As kids do, they instantly became best friends and spent the rest of the time playing together. 

Logan tried to play with them but was feeling a little left out. He eventually started crying and was really pouting. I pulled him up on my lap and asked him what was wrong.

He said, “I want to play with another Logan. There’s not another Logan here.” And cried as if his heart was broken.

I quickly explained to him that he will definitely run into another Logan sometime, everywhere we go I here someone calling out the name Logan.

We wanted our kids to have unique and different names, but nothing difficult to spell or pronounce. I thought I was on top of the baby name books and online lists. However, we discovered after we picked Logan’s name that it was 6th most popular boys’ name at the time. I have no idea how we missed that.

 When we chose Kora’s name we wanted something old-fashioned and original. Since going to this jungle gym this is the second Cora we have run into.

Guess we weren’t imaginative as as we thought!


While at breakfast the other day the kids had this exchange:

“Korwah, you’re so boo-tiful.”

“What? My shirt is beautiful?”

“No, you are boo-tiful.”

“My wings are beautiful?” She wasn’t wearing any wings, but there was a pair on the ground under the table.

Frustrated noise from Logan.

“Uhh! No. I wasn’t talking about you. I said I’m boo-tiful!”
