Warning To Expectant Mothers

I'm one of these people-- the kind with a name that doesn't show up on peg boards. When a pregnant woman starts talking names I always suggest they not be cute or original with the spelling-- the kid won't thank them! For some reason this subject has been on my mind quite a lot lately, just because I get called by the wrong name daily and sometimes it doesn't bother me and some times it does. I keep thinking I'm going to get a shirt printed with some cryptic message. Oh, well, it would probably just go over most people's heads anyway. (We all have our crosses to bear!)

Believe it or not, but as a kid I rarely found 'Bob' on nay of those key chains or cute license plates; I found 'Robert' a lot, but rarely 'bob.'

It is always a challenge when I have to ask a child his/her name to write it down. Almost all the time I have to ask for spelling and then marvel at how someone came up with it.
