My Child's Name...Venting Here B/C I Can't Tell My Parents to Shove It
Okay, so my happy euphoria over having a son that you may remember from my last post is gone...We are music lovers, my husband and I. Our two year old is named Emmylou, after Emmylou Harris. We found out last night that our second child is going to be a boy...so we've decided to name him Crosby...after Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. We're happy with it, which is what counts, but I was told the following, by each member of my family:
Sister: "Crosby? Really? You are so disowned, I don't know you."
Mom: "Well, I have 5 months to change your mind."
Dad: "I don't want to hear any lip or sass, but you have to consider how a child is going to be received with a name like that."
5 year old nephew: "No one likes your baby's name."
I mean seriously!!! I don't remember sending out a poll about baby's names to anyone! What does it matter to you what I call my child? It's not your child, it's not your name. There are plenty of kids names out there that I think they're parents had to of hit their collective heads pretty hard...but I don't say anything.
Okay, done venting....had to get that off my chest...Am I just being all pregnant hormonal about this? Should I bite my tongue, or do I have someone's permission to tell my family to shove it?
