I could take a test to prove it

For absolutely no reason, over the last two days Josh and I have been talking about what we would name kids if we had some. It only took until tonight's dinner for my sisters to catch on, and now they are convinced I am pregnant. I'm not, but they refuse to believe this. Coming up with names is an addictive game and now that Josh and I have started we can't seem to stop even though we agreed we have to, to shut Alex and Danielle up. It doesn't matter what I say, the fact Dani and I had our periods at the same time last week, according to them I am pregnant.

Alex went to bed and 20 minutes later came bursting into our bedroom to ask Josh if his parents knew. "There's nothing for them to know, since Sam's not pregnant," he sighed. Nodding, Alex patted his arm. "Your secret's safe with me." On her way out, Alex took the half-finished glass of wine off the dresser, telling me that I shouldn't be drinking that. As she walked towards the kitchen she yelled back that I can have red wine in the third trimester, like a consolation prize for being fat.

It was like a coordinated attack. Danielle came in to lay down across the foot of the bed. "Would you be a stay at home mom?" "Would you get a nanny?" "Can I be the godmother?" "Where will the baby sleep?" "Can I help make the baby's food?" Josh was just shaking his head and laughing at her. I don't even know if I want kids, but this is so definitely not at all the time to have any.

Those krazy kidz! I played the name game for years and always came back to the same ones. It's fun.

This is my favorite baby name book:

http://www.amazon.com/Cool-Names-Pamela-Redmond-Satran/dp/B001GVJC7E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307451987&sr=8-1

Its got categories like names that have an X in them, names from literature, movie star names...

Not that you actually need this book. But its fun to read.

I'm giggling @ the idea of buying the book Lisa suggested... can you IMAGINE Dani and Alex if you bought a book too?

You might wanna take a test if they are TOO annoying. Or try to find a way to really mess w/ their minds about the topic until enough time passes that they realize you aren't... messing w/ minds can be incredibly satisfying...
