Everyone laughed when their mom mixed up her kids’ names – invariably with the pet’s, too – but eventually it happens to you….
I have to try SO DANG HARD to get my kids’ names right when I talk to them, and the names don’t even sound alike. At all. I have no excuse. But darn if I don’t use every ounce of spare concentration (on short supply at the moment, along with spare energy) to say the correct name.
And still … I mess it up half the time anyway….
