Honey!! Everyone is going to think we're naming the baby Britney! For the record: WE ARE NOT. Scott keeps calling her that while she's in utero just to get a rise out of me. As you can see, it works. THAT IS NOT HER NAME. Her name has already been picked out (by Scott, I might add) and it is, I repeat, NOT Britney. (End public service announcement.)

Sheesh.

Oh, by the way, those were some awfully sweet things you said about me. Thanks. :)

For the record: we have four children. In each and every case I have been the one to tell the nurse what name to put on the birth certificate.

So, no, it's not Britney.

As far as you know.

Yet.

I refuse to take them back, no matter how you taunt me publicly.

[Editorial aside: the thang about only wanting one child? Not true. But it made the paragraph work better. Lying is always wrong. Except when it'll serve to protect the life of an innocent person. Or preserve a birthday surprise. Or improve a story. Those are the only exceptions. But the story one's a biggie.]
