I'll Make it Up to You

I've been a horrible blogger of late. Sorry about that, y'all. I'm going to try to do better. But, until I get myself together, I just had to share this blog with you. Because I love it. It says something that I agree with wholeheartedly. So, here ya go...

I Became a Mother, and Died to Live @ Renegade Mothering

Read it, mull it over, then read it again. Hope it speaks to you as well.


Today's Lesson: Carefully consider the names you give your offspring. Some names just seem to predetermine the life's path of a child. And not in a good way. And how I wish I could give you examples. But, suffice to say, "Methe" is not a good name for a girl. Or a boy, come to think of it.

Thanks for sharing. It's so good. And good advice about names. My friend had twins in her classroom named Orangejello and Lemonjello.

Anybody remember A Boy Named - get this, though - does anybody else know that the name was actually - Sioux?
