Perils of Pauline

My mom’s name is Pauline.  My children all are known by their middle names because their father was.  I followed tradition.  But my daughter is Pauline Nicole.  Obviously named after my mother and has the same spirit my mother has.  No BS.  She doesn’t take it.  I admire her and my mother and the two sisters my daughter admires for having her spirit, not the one her own mother had.  The more complacent, generous, loving spirit that my other one and only sister and I inherited from our father.  Having said all this, I thought in honour of the two Paulines in my life I would share this.  I grew up knowing the theory of the movies, but only ever saw one in full.  My mother loved them. 🙂
