« What a crock! | Main | Seriously, let's make out »

Na na na na na na

So, crock pot vegetarian lasagna was very good. Just as much trouble as making regular lasagna except that I could do all the chopping and sauteing and assembly during naptime and then throw it in the fridge. Which I could do with regular lasagna, yes, except that then I can never figure out how long it is going to take to cook and always underestimate and dinner is an hour late which is not good when it comes to the children. So I think I will definitely be making it again. I guess god really does love me.

Have I ever told you that I hate teeth? I do. I mean really, I have a blender and I'm not afraid to use it, why does my baby need teeth? Owen, who is the most charming, lovable, happiest, sweetest child you could ever hope to encounter has been a continual pain in my ass for weeks now and it is all because of teeth. I propose a boycott.

Also hey, today is my 29th 38th 34th birthday, although I will not actually complete my 34th year until early tomorrow morning (comes from being born late at night in California). What I really want for my birthday is to eat one meal without feeding anyone else, getting up eight times to fetch things for the chidren, or holding a squirmy baby in my lap (not gonna happen); to sit on the couch and watch an entire movie with my husband (not gonna happen); and four uninterrupted hours of sleep (not gonna happen). But, I am typing this from my shiny new laptop, so that's a consolation. If you would like to give me a gift, and you know you would, you can leave me a comment with your first and middle names. This is a lovely present because Mia is obsessed with full names and reading your names to her will score me a little easy entertainment this afternoon.

Happy Birthday, Beth! Hope you get at least one of your wished for moments!

For Mia.... Stephanie Marie.

Happy Birthday, Beth!

For Mia: Emily Melissa

Happy Birthday! May it be a good one!

And I'm generous, I'll give you and Mia 4 names as presents:

Ross Phillip
Jennifer Deanne
Violet Joann
Rosalie Hannah

Happy Birthday. I'll give Mia several names (mine and my children's):
Sally Anna
Henry Gunn
Graham Charles

Happy Birthday Beth!

~Leah Elaine

I would love to tell you...just to mess with Mia's mind....that I didn't give my daughter a middle name. She has a very Southern type name that sounds like 2 and therefore why a middle name?

I'd tell you what it is but then it would be too traceable to me. If you really want to me and I'll tell you so you can entertain Mia.

I'll also tell you my sister's first and middle name and then you'll really know WHY my daughter didn't get a middle name!

Happy Birthday!

Go crazy with 4 names (me, hubby and kids):

Melissa Ann
Jason Wesley
Lily Jane
Cameron Wesley

Happy Birthday!

For Mia: Sara Dawn

Named for various family members with awesome twosomes like Sally Dawn, Mary Leno, Lenolia Dawn, Willeen Dawn. Oh, and Orla Ola. Have fun today!

Happy Birthday, Beth!

Shelly Renae

Happy birthday, Beth!

Leah Marie

Happy birthday!
I hope all your wishes come true through grandparents. And yeah, I'm boycotting teeth, too. My own included. I've been to the dentist 4 times in two months, and have 3 more visits left.

Anyway, for Mia:
Lisa Elaine
Benjamin Taylor
Lucas James

Seriously, how cool would it be if teeth came in as teenagers? So we'd spend 14 years mashing food, but right as the kids became evil (sorry, teenagers), we could blame the teething pain on all the grief they cause us. Retribution, if you will.

Happy Birthday! I hope your wishes come true. At least one, right?

For Mia, sorry to disappoint, but I don't have a middle name. Lazy parents! But here are my girls names'-

Ava Isabella
Elle Annalise

(And for Mia, I'm Sarah Anne, cuz you know I was born in the 70s so my middle name could only be Anne, Marie or Lynn).

Teeth are overrated - by the time you take care of them the way you're supposed to, it's too late and they start falling out...
I have a "thing" about first and middle names. Maybe because I wasn't born with one (thanks alot ma!) so got to PICK mine when I made my confirmation. When it came time to pick boy and girl names for my child's impending birth I had so many!! So here we go - my family's and one special one that I didn't get to use (ok, two):
Nancy Catherine
Mark Aaron
Cody John
Elizabeth Armstrong

Happy Birthday Beth!

For Mia:
Adam Jeremy
Trina Louise
Hannah Grace
Rocco Nicholas

We have a very large extended family so if you need more names email me.

Here's a story for Mia...

My first name is Shannon. Boring, yes. So, my father picked the first names and my mother picked the middle names. When I was born, (kid 2) my mother totally lost her will to name. She couldn't have cared LESS what my middle name was, so she never gave me one. It was just Shannon Carroll, whole thing.

Funny thing is, the Irish have this very old tradition that my mother knew NOTHING about in that they don't give their daughters middle names, so that when they married, their daughters could still keep their family names, too. Carroll makes a loverly middle name, don't you think?

So, when I got married, I went and had my name legally changed to keep Carroll as my middle name. And now I have one! And I still can't remember to put a C and not a - in those little lines that ask for your middle initial on forms. It's totally awesome, especially when attempting to traverse international borders. :)

Happy 34th, Beth. Enjoy the now laptop!

Happy Birthday!

I'm Samantha Jo, hubby is Cyrus Bryan Kilby (oooh fancy!) and our little niddler is Theodore Thomas. Our cat doesn't have a middle name otherwise I'd bust that out too.

I hope you have the best birthday, Beth!!
My first and middle for Mia: Katie Sloan

Happy Birthday!!

Braylen Emillian Raleigh

(poor boy I know - full initials are BERP which was his father's fault, but I guess I agreed)

Happy Birthday!

Judyth Wilma. It was my great grandmother's name, and let me tell you, it's not a fun middle name when you're in school. But at least I have it easier than my friends' daughter:

Emmaleighannah Gabriaelle

Kristen Nicole

Happy Birthday!

from: Carla Dawn (me)
Ramona Josephine (cat, Mona-Jo)

Aurora Michelle
Jeffrey Franklin
Emma Iris
Recinda Loraine
Merrily Vega
Arthur David
Emma Jean
Denea Suzanne

Happy Birthday! from Melanie Joy

Happy Birthday, Beth!! Now that Lil Joe is school aged, Hubby and I are finally able to eat an entire meal without getting up. If the kids want a refill on a drink, etc., they have to go to the kitchen to get it from the fridge on their own. I'm still not able to watch a movie all the way through without falling asleep, though.

Names: mine is Karen Heather. The girl name that never got used is Julia Rose. The last boy name that got rejected (i.e., the runner up to Lil Joe's given name) was Kenneth Christopher.

Amanda Elizabeth.

Currently preggers... will find out next week what we're having, but the possiblities so far are Kyle Logan and Alyssa Riley.

Happy Birthday! :)
I will give you our 4 names:
Adam Thomas

Have a great Bday - even with feeding someone else during dinner and not sleeping :)

Happy Birthday! Hope it's a wonderful one and that you get at least one of your wishes.

Megan Kathleen (I sound like trailer trash ... well caravan park whore Im guessing thats what it is in England ive never checked ... anyway sorry to any other Megan Kathleens out there!!!)

Happy Birthday! I LOVE your wishlist--may all your future birthdays be that amazing.

So this will have to suffice--a whole family of full names:
Michael John
Sabrina (Maureen*)
Anna Maureen
Emelia Grace
Philip James**

*Actually dumped this name when I got married to move my maiden name to that slot, hence first daughter inherited

**Not yet in existence but if we ever lose all sense and reason and decide to spring for a third, AND we are miraculously granted a son, this will be his name

Happy birthday!

Maria Victoria

My name is Kate Marie, and my daughter is Kiernan Colleen. My husband's name is Michael Judson, but that's not nearly as interesting.
