Its no secret that Joern and I are having a lot of difficulty finding a name for our Little Erbse. Today though, I probably got some of the best baby naming advice of all time.
One of my students from 3 school years prior was in the library today after work. Oh yeah, I work in the library now, I'll have to write more about that later, now I'm talking about the serious work of naming a kid. So, this girl who is now a fourth grader, was asking me a bunch of questions about the baby. She asked me about the baby's sex, so I told her that we're having a boy. She said that it was good to find out the sex so that you can start shopping before baby comes. I agreed, but then added that for me, I am very glad that we know we're having a boy because we only need to choose a boy name, and that's stressful enough. The student responded by saying, "well it shouldn't be that hard, I named both of my rabbits with just a little help from my mom."
So there you have it, I guess it should be pretty easy if I want to name the baby either "Floppy," or "Misty." Apparently, I shouldn't stress about this name decision!
