I have an oddball name and you know what? I got over it. It is what it is. It actually sounds like a type of food. When people here it for the first time they crinkle up their forehead and go, "HOW do you say that?" I repeat it once or twice, I say "It sound like that particular food," They say, 'Oh, that's unusual," I say, "Yup, been hearing that my whole life," Then we move past it. I certainly don't have post traumatic stress disorder over it, nor do I resent my parents. They named me something they thought was cool and different. So what. People need to relax and pull the panties out of their cracks.

These people who think they have a right to name a kid whatever they want really should think of the consequences. Take it from someone who has a very weird name. Years of side-eyes, people laughing at my name, bullying, childishness, bitterness towards my parents over my name that lead to huge family rifts because they were hurt I didn't like it, and then actually having to PAY so I don't get picked on anymore when I became old enough to change my own name...I should have sent a bill for the charges to my parents. Frankly, I think it's selfish arrogance that makes people choose stupid names for their children. You're not the one that has to live with them.

Mother's Day is always kind of a weird day for me. I always wish my mom and all the other mommies out there a Happy Mother's Day, but my husband and I having been trying for a child for 7+ years, and are currently working on adopting through the state. I just try to be happy for others and spend the day with my hubby doing fun things. Some day it will happen for us and then we can really celebrate! (and that goes for Father's Day, too!)

This is the first Mother's Day without my mom. My kids and husband are being super sweet but it's hard not having her here. I miss her so much

I hate when people think you should never feel bad because you have things you should be grateful for or that other people have it worse. This is a confession site, a place where people get things off their chest. Don't mind response posts but hateful ones should be deleted. The last thing some of these people need is more shit piled on top.

Maximilian is a decent name, unique but not weird. Only, please spell it correctly. "Maximillion" looks kind of ghetto.

I'll be honest. I actually find this site depressing. I'm not seeing much support for anyone here, just a lot of put downs and snark. I'm going to take a break because I feel depressed after coming here. Maybe it will get better. : (

My husband's ex is a very nice lady, very down to earth and sweet. She and I have actually become friends and she is a great mother to her kids. She is very appreciative of anything I do with or for her two boys. I hear very few second wives commending their children's bio parents for doing an excellent job, for being good people Things didn't work out with her and DH because they married too young and grew apart. End of story. No reason for either of them to be hateful or bitter towards the other and honestly? I think I would RUN from any man with an acrimonious, bitter ex. Simply not worth it.
