That’s a whole post in a title..now that the husband has stepped up to the father role, he also wants to lay claim to the privileges that come with it, which apparently includes a say in nomenclature.
It is kind of sweet though that he’s been walking around with his 3 (unacceptable either coz they suck or other reasons) names so far on a small chit in his wallet so we shall let him be. Honestly, I do like the top one on his list. And in a parallel universe where the parents and society and all that weren’t involved I would be okay with it. But I want everyone in the family to like the name even if we’re the ones picking and this one might not fit that bill. I’m wondering if we can make it a middle name though..like Vibha <something> Vinod. And she can use whichever one she likes.
On the topic of privileges though, if they are in any sort of proportion to the pains we all know who’s winning that round.
