It’s been awhile since I have put a question out to all of you and I’ve missed your input. I’m weary of hearing only what I have to say. I hope to post one question a week, if I can stay on top of it…hmm…maybe I should do one of those clever things that bloggers do, like have “Tuesday Topics”. Yes, I think it will be Tuesday Topics, even if we are starting this one on a Sunday.
[I don’t usually post on Sunday, but I am recovering from the flu and while I’m well enough to sit up in bed, I’m still not up and about. I can hear my family preparing dinner downstairs and I wish I were with them. This flu has a long recovery time. So far four kids have been sick and three of them are better. As I type Honeybee is on my bed with me, crying a little about missing a special event this afternoon. And while I’m giving a little family update, Ladybug went boating with a friend yesterday and before they even got in the boat, she cut her foot on the dock and had to get fifteen stitches. Needless to say, with me sick, Russ has not gotten much done other than take care of the kids all weekend.]
Back to our Tuesday Topic:
Chris asked a great question in the comments of my last post:
I’d love to hear more about naming your kids?? We’re trying to decide that right now. We’re thinking about new American first names and their ET names for middle. Mostly because, thinking of the future, the boys name on a resume might be hard. Thought an easily pronounced american name would be better. SO, you don’t call your boys their American names? Is that their choice, or yours? We’re also thinking of doing the same for our daughter, so she won’t think, “why did he get a new name, and not me?” Oh the decisions!!
Thanks for any pointers & viewpoints!
