If you have not already done so, please go send Sophia some love…their 2nd IVF just failed. For fuck’s sake.
We have no babysitter for tomorrow, so S will have to go by herself. I don’t have much to say about it. Antibiotics are being taken…everything is in place. She’s really nervous. We are still doubtful, but are choosing to proceed.
In other news:
There is this name. It is name that I covet like no other name in the history of the world. I HEART it. I love it equally for a boy or a girl. I love all of the nicknames. I love absolutely everything about it.
At the park today I saw a couple and their kids who I know through our mutual friends. We live in the same smallish community and never run into each other. I am getting to a point here, bare with me. Her daughter (who I have never met, but is the same age as LM) has this name, and when we learned through our mutual friends of her birth it was the first time I heard the name. I have heard it since, but only two other times.
I had actually hoped never to run into them because maybe I could still get away with using the name. I thought that even though we know them through friends, we are not friends with them per se, and have not seen them in 5 years. I thought that we could still use the name. But now we have seen them. And we exchanged numbers. Stupid S exchanged number with them! Heh. What was she thinking??? Did she think we were civilized people who would never choose a name over some measly people? I am joking, of course. Mostly.
I love this name so much that I am tempted not to call them just so that the option remains open. But I’m also aware that I am insane. I think only a few folks will be able to understand this type of crazy. Bri maybe? This is the PERFECT unique name.
They would find out. So what do I do? Do I ask them? Do I plead my case? Or do I just never mention it and explain when we run into each other again in 3-5 years? Or have our mutual friends (who i only see a few times a year) tell them?
What is the name protocol here? I certainly don’t want anyone stealing my name.
But I cannot express the infatuation I have with this lovely name. It is the loveliest name of all time.
Now I am wondering, what if these folks loved LM’s real name and wanted to name their baby that name. Um…truthfully, if they loved it so much they wanted to marry it, and they asked me…I would say yes, only because they would not be the same age with the same name.
Maybe I’m lying.
I don’t think so though. Jesus. If we actually have another baby, ever, this might seem like a nice problem to have.
