Now, this will upset a few of you, but I can’t share that name with you. We haven’t shared a name with anyone since Jace was in utero. Why? Well, because when I was pregnant with Zander, and Gene and I FINALLY decided that his name would be Zander, we were so excited that we told everyone. The reactions I got were awful. “How could you name your child that?” “What are you thinking?” “This child is going to be made fun of for the rest of his life!” and other such comments. But, Gene and I stuck to our guns and when Zander was born, we named him Zander. I am SO glad that we did, because he definitely IS a Zander. No other name would fit that boy.
So, when we got pregnant with Jace, we decided we weren’t sharing the name with anyone. Ask any of the ladies in my mom’s group – LOL! – they tried and tried, but I stayed strong and didn’t tell anyone until the day he was born.
When I was pregnant with Lucy, MIL begged and begged to hear the name, swearing she wouldn’t tell a soul. Well, she didn’t… until she “slipped” at my baby shower…. right in front of my mother, of all people. Believe me, I won’t make that mistake again. Up until that point Lucy had gone by “Tink” through all of my pregnancy.
So, we have a name. The kids know the name, and the kids know they are not allowed to tell anyone the name. Luckily, Lucy can’t say the name well enough for anyone to understand, so I think we’re safe. The boys have decided that if anyone asks, we are naming the baby “Spiderman.” Z loves this idea, as it was his first choice for a name anyway. 🙂
I’m excited, because I bought a sewing/embroidery machine last year, and I can finally make some things for this baby and put his name on it.
Want to know the baby’s name? Guess you’ll just have to stay tuned….
