Leyla's gymnastic instructor has started calling my daughter Ley-lee. I can't stand it. After the first couple of times it happened, my kid ran off to the bench and pouted. When I asked her what was wrong, she said "Mommy, my name is Leyla." And then we had water, chatted about telling the teacher what her name is and re-joined the class. I know she's only two but she is already very outspoken. The teacher hates it when kids run off too. She said "Uh-uh Leylee, what happened? You know better."
This past class, Leyla told the teacher "My name is Leyla," but the coach didn't stop and Leyla got used to it and responded anyway. It's not a big deal, but I'm so irritated by it, like nails on a chalk board irritated. It's like if her name was Kayla and people started calling her Kaylee.
