The worst part about having a new baby boy?-- finding a name everyone can agree on and a nice middle name to match.
The worst part about having a baby girl?-- finding a name, any name... that Colonel Mustard can agree on (forget if anyone else likes it or not).
So you can imagine the dilemma at our house of coming up with TWO girl names and TWO middle names to go with them.
We've really tried to solve this problem--unfortunately nothing thus far has stuck.
The kids and I made a list of about 25 names that at least two of us liked. We gave the list to Colonel Mustard and instructed him to circle any names he would Remotely consider--------he crossed off every name on the list.
Then we talked about keeping to our "southern roots" and naming them Bobbie Jo and Billie Jean.
The kids like Fiona, so we decided on Fiona and Fantasia.
Out of desperation, we came up with Philomena and Wilomena.
These are all nice ideas, but we thought maybe we could be more creative.
Since all our babies have looked the same, Colonel Mustard and I are a bit concerned if we will be able to tell two newborn girls apart. I told him to be sure they took a Sharpie and wrote "A" and "B" on their feet when they came out until we could find a better way to identify them--- but then again, why bother. We can just put "Baby A" and "Baby B" on their birth certificates and be done with it.
Tonight, Colonel Mustard suggested that we get a big box of crayons and each randomly reach in and pull out a crayon. Okay, baby A will be "Magenta", and oh look...baby B gets to be "Light Blue"!
Colonel Mustard's favorite idea however, comes from Ebay where a couple sold the right to name their baby girl for $15,000. Never mind they had to name her "Virgin Mary"-- they got a hefty sum for doing so! Imagine what we could get for the rights to name our twins! (tempting)
So if anyone has any suggestions--we're open to them. Remember however, not to be offended. Colonel Mustard will probably hate your idea too--unless you're paying him to use it!
