Rio: Mama, I think you are going to forget my name.

Me: I would never forget your name. I named you.

Rio: What if I went away from you forever? For…for TWENTY YEARS?

Me: I would still remember you.

Rio: I think you would forget half of my name, and you would not know my last name or my middle name and you would only call me Rio.

Me (confused): I only call you Rio now.

Rio: No, you don’t. Sometimes you call me “Rio-or-Serena-or-whatever-your-name-is”. I want you to only call me Rio.
