Reflections and Contributions of a SAHM

When I was younger my name used to be Carol Jean.  I just didn't feel like that name fit me.  I was named after my mom's sister but we weren't close and I just didn't like the name.  "What would you like your name to be?" my parents asked me.  I quickly gave them the name that my dad wanted to name me when I was a baby.  So, my parents legally changed my name.  It was done before my 13th birthday and I was so excited.  I think its a much better fit and rarely tell people about the old Carol Jean name.  I was excited to do that but if my dd asks to change her name I'll probably tell her she has to do it herself when she's eighteen.
