AMEN! We had nicknames for Jen and our grandkids, following the characters in the book,(Alyssa is the only one that "under-grew" her name)! All of there names fit perfectly! Jen was "Pooh Bear"; Lys was "Piglet"; Carson is "Tigger" and Will is "Eoyere"
"A variation of the lesson my grandmother taught me when I began teaching school. She retired (twice!) and still subs at age Her advice to me was to love the kids who are the hardest to love, because those are the ones who need it more. Best advice ever.
