With our 20 week ultrasound right on the horizon, of two weeks from now, my mind has been toying with many different things.... (My undiagnosed Adult ADD has severely kicked itself into high gear!) One thing I have been contemplating is… when the baby is born, should we register him or her for their own email address? How fun would it be to say our kid actually had their email since birth!? I know, a little crazy, but just think about it! I’m sure there are geekier people out there than I am who have done this. Or am I just eccentric that way?
Another thing, nick names? If we are having a boy we have decided to call him Mauldin. Mauldin James Skates. So, this is the issue, my nick name for my wife is Mauldin, due to this being her maiden name. There are times when I only can get her to answer to this name, especially when we are out in public.
“Laura? Laura? LAURA?” I say in a determined voice. Still there is no response,
“Yes?” says Laura, as if this is the first time she has heard me trying to get her attention, in Target.
If our child ends up being a boy, despite the poll to the right of you located on my blog, what if we called him “
With that being said, all this will be null and void if in two weeks we find out we are having a girl. If this is so, this will be open for discussion at a later time, for the next child.
Still, in the meantime, let us know your thoughts and opinions! Thanks!
