Men are from Mars

Yesterday Caleb's parents were in town so we all went to the beach to enjoy the sun. Caleb and I were talking on the drive home about names. Middle names actually - Caleb was again commenting on how strange it was that my sisters and I don't have them.

"Why is it so strange" I asked, "do YOUR sisters have middle names?"

And do you know what? He had NO IDEA. His excuse was that by the time he was old enough they were all out of the house. But I say that has nothing to do with the fact that he should, as their brother, know at least whether or not they HAD middle names. Never mind what they were.

And this explains a lot more about the difference between Caleb and I than it really should.

It's a tradition in my family not to have middle names for the girls either... I think it's a little strange and I'm going to give my girls TWO names. My Mom's reasoning is that when a woman gets married, four names is TOO many. But, on the other hand, I heard somewhere (so therefore might NOT be true) that the church prefers women to have middle names to that geneaology and record keeping is a little easier. I doubt there are any other Danae Lilyquist's out there, but there could be many, many girls named Sarah Jones. :)

That's very true. And secretly though, I've been thinkin' up lots of middles names for my kids. :)
