I am so excited for today's link up.

Today is all about Mommy Confessions.
And yes, I have a lot of confessions but the real questions is,
do I really want to blow the horn on myself??
So let me start of small.
I am talking about picking out that perfect name for your sweet, precious, gift of life, child.
A name that you love and cherish.
This will be your child's name for the rest of their life.
So it needs to be something amazing right?!
Like make all your friends jealous that they didn't think of that name.
Ya got me?!
Well, can I just tell you that I am not even pregnant yet
(for the second go around obviously)
and talking second baby names with the hubs makes me burn inside.
Every time I hear that perfect name and mention it to him.
What do you know he hates it.
He shoots down my names because he says
"well I know someone who has that name and I don't like him/her"
I get that.
To a certain degree.
But when he starts in on the
"I know someone who has that name and it reminds me of a time when..."
That is when my eyes start to roll and my blood begins to boil.
Because not only are they the most ridiculous situations I have heard heard in my toddlers life.
But because they go something like this....
"I know someone who has that name and
they used to make tuna sandwich's in the office and it smelled."
What the F*c*?
Are you serious?
That is the reason you don't like this
nothing but perfection name that I want to name our sweet child?
I obviously think this name is "it".
I get that AHA moment and feel so proud of myself.
And can already see monograms dancing in my head.
But it gets the can all because of TUNA.
I want my husband to be part of the name process
but give me some valid arguments please.
If not, I am going to use my own petty plea of
"well you named our first child so I get to name the second one"
When in all reality we did agree on C's name,
but he is the one who picked it out.
get it together and either come up with that perfect name,
but do not come at me with the tuna argument again,
or any other fish in the sea or sandwich.
