F is for Family

I'm going to be an aunt in 7 months...

My brother's gotten his girlfriend pregnant, and she's 7-8 weeks along. He's already told my mom, but he's afraid about telling my dad (completely understandable since my dad's not the most... patient of men).

We were joking about what to name the kid. The wifey (aka the girlfriend) wants to name the kid Marrow or Nikko, but my brother wants something a little more normal. I told him he should name it (if it's a boy) Tom or Tony.

You have to know that we had 3 Uncle Toms, and two of them had named their sons Tony.

It should be interesting to see what's going to happen with my brother and his girlfriend in the coming months and years.


  1. Nikko was the name of the Flying Monkey who held the basket holding Toto when the Wicked Witch trapped Dorothy in her castle.

  2. Challenging times and the name is the least of the issues to face. Hope you're looking forward to being an aunt!
