John John the Boom!

This afternoon, I was chatting on the phone with my BIL S*. He and my sister are expecting their 2nd child any day now. He was on speaker phone and I was asking my kids to guess the baby's gender and suggest a name. E* said boy with the name of Papa. M*'s friend M* said a girl named Gabriella. I was telling E* that Papa's name was Papa...this baby needed a different name. S* chimed in "like John John the Boom." Wow...a funny incident that I had forgotten!

After Ken and I went to the ultra sound for E*, I went to pick up my kids from a friend's house. We told the kids that they were going to have a brother and asked "what should we call him?" Three year old C* piped up, "John John the Boom." We and all our friends got a chuckle over that one. And for a short time, we referred to our baby in utero as "John John the Boom."

Thanks for the reminder, S*. You make a great historian. Espcially since he was only dating my sister at the time. See J*, he was listening!! What a catch!

That's so funny. Possible names for our baby that my kids have suggested are "Snoopy Cowboy" and "Shortpants." I don't know where they come up with this stuff.
