One of the best things about living close to family is that they help me feel very normal. They know where I am coming from, my background, a lot of my history, and it comes in handy.
Take Friday. For those interested in having a say in the name of Baby Cunningham #4, you need to talk to Garry. As I picked out Emma and had a major say in Macey and definitely picked the name Molly, I have conceded that it is Garry's turn. He has a list of about 11 boy names and 20 girl names.
H confided in me that his #2 name choice for a boy was "Riker".
I said ABSOLUTELY NOT! Why not should be obvious, and I told him why not, and he said that I was the only one that would even think of that.
So I called my sister. And asked her on speakerphone, "Rachelle, why can we not name a boy (if it is a boy) Riker. Explain it to Garry."
And she did. Because it's a name of a prison and everyone knows that.
It's good to be proven normal.
