What would you do?
Every time we go out in public with the kids it never fails someone asks their names, usually older people, who think they are cute. J will not put our kids in clothing that has their name on it for safety reasons, and I am in agreement with him. I just don't know what to say in those situations so I usually end up just telling them their name. J told me to make up names, I'm just not that quick, plus, if I tell them their name and then need to get that child's attention and I use their real name it seems weird. It just got me thinking because at Peanut's check up a lady (grandma age) in the waiting room asked how old she was and her name. Then she made the statement, which really rubbed me the wrong way, "You finally got your girl after two boys." I had to fight everything in me not to say, "Actually our oldest is a girl and she is in school right now." I just smiled, instead. What do you do in these situations???
