Yes, we're that couple -- the kind who picks out baby names waaayyy before said baby is conceived. Anyway, so Superman has recently decided he wants to name our baby girl Meghan. But don't "ooh" and "awww" yet. Not hardly.
Superman told me about this name decision last night, but let me back up to our second year of marriage and we were visiting his grandparents.
If any of you have been married over a year and have not had a baby, you probably get the "Why haven't you gotten pregnant yet?" convo. Well, we were discussing babies with his grandparents, and his grandmother asked, "Have you thought about names?"
And before I could answer, Superman said, "If it's a girl, we're naming her MEGATRON."
That's right, ladies and gentlemen. My husband wants to name his daughter after a Transformer. Told you, we are dorks. But I think this shoots his dorkiness up more than mine. You be the judge.
The thing is, his grandmother BELIEVED him. She looked at me and said, "Well...I guess you could call her Meg."
"NO, NO!!" I exclaimed, glaring at Superman. "He's joking, Mamaw. We are NOT naming our daughter Megatron."
So apparently he's been thinking still of Megatron, as why he decided our little girl (if we even HAVE one) should be named Meghan.
"Uh...no," I said last night when he brought it up, because I KNEW what he was thinking. "We are NOT naming our daughter Meghan."
It's not that I really have anything against the name Meghan. I have something against the next words that came out of his mouth:
"Oh, come on!" he said. "How cute would it be when she's three years old for me to say, 'Baby, what's your name again?' and she says, 'MEGATRON!!'"
Oh, no, no, no, no, no....
