Well we found out today that we are having a boy (16 weeks, my first baby, his second baby). DH has always said he wanted to name his first son after himself...Well I am not okay with that. He has a daughter already and we agreed that this would be our only child in addition to her. I'm just not okay with giving up any input I might've had in naming my only child! We were supposed to go out to dinner and celebrate tonight, I even took off work and everything. On the drive to the restaurant I told DH we are not naming our son after him, but that I'm willing to compromise (keep first and last name but change the middle name?). He wasn't having that at all. He threw such a fit he demanded that I take him home, and as soon as I pulled into the driveway he got out of the car and got straight into his truck and drove to his friend's house. I was so upset I went to my parents' house and ended up celebrating with them instead. I sent him a text asking him why we can't just be in love with our son and spend the next 5-6 months deciding on a name we both like. He says this is just the most important thing in the world to him. I don't understand why he is making such a big deal over this. I'm not backing down though, I feel strongly that we need to compromise on this instead of doing exactly what he wants. Especially now that he is throwing this temper tantrum about it I feel that he is being really selfish. What the heck am I supposed to do???
