Missed Bullet

"When I grow up, I think I'm going to name my baby boy Orville," Big Kid announced.

"Orville?" God, we eat too much popcorn, I worried.

"After Orville Wright. I really admire him."

"Oh. What's his brother's name? Do you admire him?"

"Wilbur? Sure, I admire them both."

"Wilbur? Nevermind. Hey! You've always really admired Benjamin Franklin. Benjamin's nice! Or Theodore Roosevelt. We love him! I could do Theodore but, boy, Benjamin sure is a snazzy name."

"Oh yeah, Benjamin! I like that! But what should I name a girl baby?"

Just wanted to say thankyou for being so honest and real!
I've been reading since I found out I was pregnant (I googled every "mom" blog for insight..isn't that what everyone does?).
The prospect of motherhood is still terrifying but I'm excited to love and laugh more.. that seems to be a side-effect. :)
