little kid and I like to talk about the names of his future children.
Rose, Summer and Maria are at the top his girl list right now.
Jack and Dominick are his boy names.
So freaking cute.
"You could name your daughter Aquifer," I joked one day after we were discussing wells. (Yes, like wells for water. We talk about weird things.) "Aquifer McCann."
"Maybe I'll change my last name." He said.
"Well, maybe I'll take my wife's last name. I don't know."
"Wow. That's awfully progressive of you! Very forward thinking. That's pretty cool."
"You never know, mom, maybe she'll have a cool last name. Besides, I've decided you should probably do whatever your wife wants. If she wants us to use her last name, we will."
Dear future daughter-in-law, I'm writing this for you. I don't care what you call yourselves but you're going to be a lucky lady.
You and little Aquifer both.
