How much fun did you have as a little girl dreaming of what you would name your babies? I honestly can't remember the names I chose when a little girl, but I do remember the ones I chose in child development in HS. (btw..I should have taken home ec....I already knew about babies...not sewing...ugh)
I love practicing the name around the house...pretending they are in trouble or chasing them through the house. How does it sound w/your last name...or w/all your children together? Spelling it on paper! AWWW I'm in love! This baby you are dreaming of while growing inside you will have a name and you and your hubs choose it! How thrilling!
Anyways...what's got me so upset about baby names? The rude comments people make when asking what names we are thinking for this little growing angel.
You know the routine...
"OHHHH You're pregnant again?"
"Do you know what you are having?"
Nope, not yet...we find out in Sept."
"Ohhh what names are you thinking..."
"_____ for a girl and _____ for a boy"
and their comment? "EWWWWW I don't like those!"
I mean really? Really...you're gonna say that to my face. And this isn't just one person this is pretty much every person we encounter. The fact of the matter is I'm in love w/the names we have chosen. The boy name I had picked out when I was pregnant w/Lily. I loved it then and love it now. The girl name is just as pretty! It's not a common name that you hear lately....(no lily or olivia....or grace etc) but it's no Apple, CoCo, or Rocker for a name. It's an actual name. Just thankfully not in the top 20. After we named Lily 5 friends/neighbors named their daughters Lily and then we didn't feel we had such a unique name. Heck when she goes into school she'll start being Lily S. ugh! I had like 5 Laura's in my class and it was annoying!
Lillian's initials are L B....one for my name and hubs
If this is a girl I picked a B for the first name and L for the second. Reverse of Lily's hee hee
I seriously have had friends name their children ummm different names, but I wouldn't tell that to their face....it's their child and their choice, not mine. Hence why sometimes in life you tell white lies. Or dance around it, just don't say "EWWW I don't like it"
So from now on I don't think I'm telling more ppl. Let them make the rude comments after the baby is born. I'll slug them and say it's leftover hormones.
And to the ones who said it was ugly...I remember who you are...so after the baby is born and you say you like it I'm calling you a liar!
WOW I sound hostile today! :o)
I'm really not! I'm in a fantastic mood! I continued to paint more surfaces yesterday. Hubs was in for a surprise when he came home from work
Here are more...
Art Niche (I hate that niche...I don't have any art and it's wasted space...but sure made for fun painting)
My computer Nook in the kitchen
and lastly...Living Room wall not completed b/c I ran out of glaze! (grins)
stay tuned for tomorrow's recipe! I thought I lost it and found it while cleaning! I'm soooo excited to make and eat it again! yummy yummy
