I didn't know she had a name.
I didn't know she was French.
What I did know was that My dad played with her when he was little and then passed it to his siblings. My Grandma kept it and every grandchild and great-grandchild has chewed on it and loved it since. I wanted one for Ben when he was teething, but I always thought there would be more children and more chances to purchase one. Well, that didn't happen, so today, at Sam's Club, when I saw her (and her hefty price tag) sitting conveniently on a pallet next to the diaper display I had to put her in my cart.
Her name is Sophie, and I think she's a hit.
