can i get a redo? is it horrible that I am even asking that.
this is what was on the white board in our L&D room when Mackey was born ...
Mackey is on the top - but it is probably the name the we discussed the least. This was our reduced list - when we first got into the labor room, we had over 20 names on the board. twenty.
and we were having a baby that very day.
what was wrong with us. why could we not decide.
I wanted to name him Kellen, but Brent wasn't sold. We had agreed on Tate but hated that there were no nicknames except Tater and then a friend named her dog that - so it moved down my list.
Cruz was in the final 3 after he was born - but i decided a blonde Cruz just didn't seem right.
Plus Cruz = cross in Spanish and our last name is rather religious.
Beckett sounded too much like Bucket. Max was too common. I love Brigg but Brent not so much.
Lincoln and Dexter were cute in that nerdy kind of way.
Rio was a little out there for Brent to go for but I could have convinced him if I wanted.
Breaker was a name we called Mack for almost 2 months - but we decided it was too far off the mainstream but kept it on our list in case the baby was born w/ a broken clavicle (seriously. notice the asterix next to it)
somehow Mackey became Mackey by reason of deduction I guess.
I wish I could go back. I wish I could have a redo but even to this day I don't know what I would name him. I wish the mean birth certificate lady didn't rush me to name my baby I had held for all of 3 minutes and was in an entire other hospital so I couldn't even look at him while I decided. I wish I didn't have the worst migraine ever and just chose a name quickly so the lady would leave the room and turn the lights out. I wish I
wasn't so indecisive so my beautifyl baby would have a name that I really loved.
some days he is starting to seem like his name - and after almost 7 months I think it is too late to change it.
I call him "Macks" most of the time - so maybe I should have just named him Max.
I am still mad at my friend for stealing my "name" and naming her stupid dog Tate.
next time, if there is a next time, i am naming my child before she is born.
