When Pata was a toddler, she used to repeat adjectives for emphasis, so something very small was “little little.” I liked the sound of that, and came to use it as another nickname for her, and she became my little little. Now that she’s five, she thinks she’s big, but really, she’s not. When I tell her that, she corrects me: “I’m still a little little, but I’m a lot big.”
