I knew our choice of name would cause a problem..
but I'm SUPER annoyed by it. My sil has a one year old she named Jack, family name on her dh side I think. My dh and I had picked Zachary Michael years ago. When I found out I was having a boy I tried to come up with another boys name not wanting the confusion of Jack and Zack but every time we talked about it we just kept saying we loved that name. I was told over and over it wouldn't be a problem since they live so far apart... and my hubby has many cousins with his same name, so no biggie.
Well, my MIL is visiting and she keeps calling him Jack! I'm SOOOO annoyed by this it's not even funny. Today she said she's going to start calling him "ack". *steam coming out of my ears*
Of course, I'm annoyed by other things too like "that's a cute outfit Addie, of course, yellow isn't your color at all, but..." really? really?? that's what you have to say to my daughter?? Ugh. I knew she was going to annoy me. I didn't really even want her to visit, but I'm trying to keep it all inside, however the name thing is going to KILL me! She justified it today by saying she calls her son in law the wrong name sometimes too, a boyfriend from over 10 years ago - from before I even MET my dh! Ummm, still not ok.
Sorry - had to vent somewhere private. Am I just being a *itch? Please tell me if I am.
