What’s in a name………..

Most people I know hate one of their names.  Usually because the only time it was ever used by our parents is when they were royally pissed.

But what about the way a child says (or in this instance types) your name?  I was on an im with my son, The Bastard, and he was talking about The Blonde listening to "Kern River" and he's gacking.  Now that sounds as logical to be a persons name as "River Phoenix" right?  So I ask him "who is Kern River?"  And he responds "Merle Haggard mother (aka dumbshit) the song….si habla?"  Just the way he did the "mother" I could hear sarcasm dripping.  (I love Merle).

How do I discern that, you ask?  Well, rarely do my kids call me mother, for one.  It's usually "mom" or "momma".  When they say "mother" I know I am about to be busted on.  Or if they are about to "explain" something to me in terms even a first grader can understand. 

I, for one, am quite proud of my childrens sarcastic sense of humor.  As well I should be because it has traveled in our blood through my Dad, to me and my siblings, to our children…… Why do you think they call us THE BASTARD CLAN?

    You forgot to mention “MA”. Boy did you hate me calling you that when I was growing up!

    I love my name. I love that you loved your father so much that you would give me his name. Getting a tattoo of my name was a way of honoring that.

    OMG!! That is the one thing I would yell at you for. DON’T CALL ME “MA”. And you would continue to do it when you wanted to push my buttons. 😀

    Yes, Daddy was my hero and I could not think of a better way to let him know, than to name my baby girl after him. 😀
