Johnson

Bobby & I were discussing boy names and trying to decide what sort of image we wanted to project for the kid. I wanted a name that was masculine and unique and Bob wanted a name that was unique and sounded good for an athlete. We came up with different names for each image and the name that occurred for both of us for athletic was (of course) Johnson.

Bob then went into this riveting play by play, "
Johnson back to pass, hes got Johnson down the field, pass is up... INTERCEPTED BY Johnson! Johnson goes for the tackle, STRIPS THE BALL!!! recovered by Johnson..This game is brought to you by Johnson & Johnson. NO MORE TEARS!"

Ok, Johnson is out (as is Houshmanzadeh, Ocho Cinco, etc) but I thought Bob's monologue deserved a blogging.

I honestly never believed in the terrible twos until now. I always believed in the back of my mind the terribles really spent their time in the threes. Marley is being a trial and it's made worse by my parental fail of letting her get a sunburn. I feel guilty and also like I am losing my mind. It's all whiney voice and angry tears the last two days.

...
Were thinking about baby names again. Henry is too popular for me and, honestly, it didn't get the reception we thought it would.

George, Walker, Sullivan, Oliver...
If he ends up being a girl I'm naming her Summer.

Tantrumy Twos

Don't try to solve serious matters in the middle of the night.
- Phillip K. Dick

Marley is in a week of serious two year oldness. She is using her whiny voice a lot and is breaking down in earsplitting tantrums over things she would normally not (like not being able to pick up the lamp). At first I was not sure if she was sick but then I realized that this week is the first time I have ever felt like I was having trouble communicating with her, not understanding words she is obviously trying to say to me.

Having worked at Cincinnati Bell and talk to people who were in the throes of not being able to communicate in the fashion they were use to (because their phone service was broken) I know how much communication can take a normally friendly person and make them an angry screaming maniac.
