BJ'S BLOG 04/23/13 "Baby Names"
During Group Therapy yesterday, we read an email Jennifer wrote who was mad at her husband over a baby name suggestion!
She is currently 39 weeks pregnant and the other day her husband and her were discussing baby names for their new daughter. At one point he said a name that she quickly shot down because she once worked with a girl by the same name and she left a bad taste in her mouth.
Later, while talking to her mother-in-law, she found out that the name he suggested was the name of his ex-girlfriend! It was the girlfriend before her and they dated for three years.
Jennifer wasn’t sure if this meant that he still had feelings towards his ex.
I don’t know why her husband thought it was a good idea to suggest this name to her. Why would someone consider naming their child after someone they dumped or were dumped by in the first place? There is no way this could be some sort of dumb strategy to get the ex back, and if it is, this guy is a tool shed.
I feel like this younger generation doesn’t have the same set of boundaries I, and possibly even one generation before them had. Anyone thinks they can go anywhere or say anything but the truth is…you can’t.
