I woke up Sunday morning in the South of France to the sound of The Hip coming from the living room. As I rolled out of bed, rubbing my eyes, I found my husband with coffee in hand, accompanied by two pink princesses in superhero capes, catching up on what all of Canada was engrossed in while we were asleep.
As a former teacher I remember shortening kids' names, thinking I was giving them a special nickname. Now, as a parent, I cringe that I once did that. It wasn't up to me to change the name they were given.
