Someone's career in crime is off to a shaky start. You have to see this adorable photograph posted on Reddit. A crafty 5-year-old forged her mom's signature, but she got one crucial detail wrong: She signed it "Mommy." Psst. Kid. Imma let you in on a little secret. That's not how "Mommy" signs her name. See, she has this other name. Maybe you've heard Daddy use it?
"Nailed it," the 5-year-old's mommy wrote on Reddit. Ha! So cute. I especially love the little hearts below. She really loves this person whose name she's forging!
Isn't it funny that the girl is savvy enough to think of faking her mom's signature on something (now I'm dying to find out what it is), but she hasn't figured out that she should have used her mom's first and last name? I mean, how long in a kid's life does that phase last? Months? This little moment here is kind of magical.

And when do kids arrive at that realization, anyway -- that realization that your parents have other names, and that there are other kids with people they call "Mommy" as well. It's kind of mind-blowing for them, I'm sure.
Anyway, regardless of the child's criminal intent (kidding, I'm KIDDING about that!) I must point out that her printing is impeccable. As a mommy myself, I'm quite impressed by this kindergartener's careful work. I'd be hard pressed to write so neatly. I think I'd have to frame forgery, if I were this Mommy.
When did your kids realize you have a first and last name -- other than "Mommy" or "Daddy"?
