Gasp! Uh oh. I just discovered this morning that there's a problem with the name "Melody." I was in the other room when I heard a cry from her crib. So I called out in a sing-song voice, "Coming, Melody!" And I thought to myself how pretty her name sounded.
Then I fast forwarded a few years to having to yell at her when we're at the playground. "Melody! No pushing! MELODY!" And I thought, hmm, that name just doesn't work with the naggy mom voice. It's too pretty and, well, melodic, for yelling! But hey, maybe she'll just be a perfect angel always and I'll never have to yell at her. Right? Riiight?
