When I picked Donovan up from Waldorf last night we were walking to the busstop and he stopped under a streetlight, pointed up and said, "MOON!" I looked up and wondered if he was refering to the streetlight as I did'nt see anything. "Where's the moon?" I asked him. He looked at me with something between disdain and disbelief: "Its up in the sky."

Of course. Silly me.

And it was visible, in case you were wondering. Mama's eyes; they ain't so good.

I saw this list of baby names your friends will think are cool, and it made me think of you and yours. Did you pick his name to intentionally be cool?? Just curious!

Oh how I miss when mine were young. They see things we tend to overlook as we get older, even the ones that are in our face :-)

JENNIE, MIKE & DONOVAN. said...

Jess--I told Mike he could have the last name if I could have the first two. So Donny's name is Donovan Victor Shanley--named after my Dad (Donovan) and my favorite Uncle. What can I say? I'm old school.

If my Mom ever referred to my Dad as "Donovan" it was obvious that he was goosing her as she was walking up the stairs. She always called him Ben.
