…to my sons.
This may come as a surprise but I did not name my children after letters of the alphabet.
LD and Zee are so named here on the blog as a way to preserve their privacy. It's quite a common practice. Some people stick with initials and others (have the presence of mind to) choose cute/funny nicknames.
This is my blog. I choose to write it and reveal things about myself. B and the kids are along for the ride whether they like it or not. In saying that, I am mindful of what I reveal about them and the photos that I share. So I have struggled with what to do next.
Because here's the thing. Naming children has to be one of the most nerve-wracking and thrilling things a person can do. Such power! Such a privilege. And I love the names we chose for our boys. More and more, typing LD and Zee annoys me.
In the end, I had a chat to my beloved, B aka Brendon, and we agreed that revealing the boys' actual names was unlikely to tilt the earth off it's axis. Added to that, most of my absolute favourite blogs use real names and they enjoy a much higher profile than little old me.
So, without further ado, please meet:
Four years old. A study in 'tude.
Almost two. Mad cuddling skillz.
And for more Little Mumma…
I have just started guest blogging a pregnancy diary at birth.com.au and would absolutely love it if you would swing by and take a look…..and if you feel so inclined, leave me a message. Check it out here.
