I am not expecting a grandchild…I’m expecting TWO! I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment. I feel kind of torn. All I can say is, the 2nd one will probably be here two to three weeks after the first one and I have massive planning to do…I was almost to a point where I could plan around one–but two that close together? Oh boy…I always said if it’s weird or unusual it will happen around here when I’m around…
I can get to the front of the checkout line at Wal~Mart and the power will go dead–among other things. Can someone send me a bottle of Hendrick’s Gin? I could really use a few mixed drinks about now…I know this much–better those girls than moi! Now I’ve got to figure out the Holidays every year all over again–and it’s going to be weird…
Then I hear the youngest really leaning toward naming his son AFTER another family member. To me this is a big no-no. I don’t go for that. It’s just a thing with me that it seems rather silly to give a child a name they’d have to live up to–or one he or she would end up changing as an adult because he/she hates how it sounds–or he/she simply didn’t like the story behind it… A child’s name is to be something taken very seriously. It is something they will own, and the responsibility should not be taken lightly.
I held my babies for a bit before I could even begin to come up with a name. Then when I did, it just felt right. Sure I pondered several but the names REALLY came to me when I held them…It was the most awesome feeling to look into the child’s eyes and know I picked the right name, even though my middle son doesn’t like the meaning of his. Oh well…Such is life. He can get over it.
Picking names for a baby is not that hard, but some people make it a chore. I think my way is the better one. I never needed a baby name book either….
Loved this one Tina. Daphne is gonna have another Kevin jr she says. I would do the same for Eric but if it’s a boy Cody lane gates. I hope my son/ daughter will look like Eric!
Oh NOW Kevin says “Kevin David”…Sounds like a booze brand and we all know I’m not keen on naming a kid after anyone…For a boy, Cody Lane isn’t bad…I bet yours is a girl, though. I kind of like the name “Hawk”… That’s just me…LOL
I’m impressed by your writing. Are you a professional or just very konlweedgable?
I am working on a book as we speak…Thank you for your response!
