Who is “Me”?
When I got the news I was going to be a grandmother, people started asking what I wanted my grandchildren to call me. I selected a name, but our first grandchild had another idea. When we were together before he could talk, I would ask him, “Do you want me to help you” (stack blocks, get a toy, open something)? When he started talking, he referred to himself as “You” and myself as “Me”. I loved it! He would say, “Me, hold You” (meaning he wanted me to hold him). Thus, the name “Me”. A bit confusing for some maybe, but now the whole family refers to me as “Me”. And now, you see why you can write to “Dear Me”.
