@#$% Lucky, I'm PISSED

Okay, maybe I'm overreacting.  A little.

Husband and I were getting ready this morning when he informs me that a friend of his from law school had a baby last week.  I love this friend, he's awesome, when they were in school we hung out sometimes and he's really cool.  He got married two summers ago (when I was pregnant with Bink and we had 5 weddings that summer and my dress had puke on it) and I have not seen him since, and I met his wife at their wedding and she seems perfectly nice.

Which is really too bad, because now I hate her.

They named their baby the same name as Bink.  Now, I don't care that we have not seen them in two years, and it's very likely we'll see them once more in our lives, maybe, but I am FURIOUS.  Note that I know it's totally stupid and I don't know why I am so furious, but I am.  Note that I didn't actually choose Bink's name, Husband did, and I would have named her something else, but I DON'T CARE.  Note that Bink's name isn't all that uncommon, but again I DON'T CARE.  I'm livid.

Good thing my kid is cuter.  No, I have not seen this new baby, but again, I DON'T CARE.

  1. Oh! I'd be so mad too! I wanted to name my pea-pie SO MANY other names, but I purposefully did NOT because people we knew already named their kids those names. I felt it would've been rude. Plus, I wanted my pea-pie to have a name that was exclusively hers, and hers alone. Boo!

  2. EXACTLY. I am so angry and I am glad you understand and don't think I'm crazy. I mean, I sort of am, but I don't care :) xoxo

  3. I found out that EVERYONE has named their baby our baby's name so oh well. When I went to make his birth announcements there were at least three examples of his name and it was on a list of most popular names this year AND at the pediatrician's office the other day the kid before us was the same name - Jackson. Sigh.

  4. That is totally different, of course! Also, congratulations and I am sure your Jackson is the best one. Der! :)
