This conversation occurred in the ladies room at a restaurant last night:
Lady: Oh my, what a pretty little girl you have there.
Me: Why thank you. Beatrice, can you say thank you?
Beatrice: Thank you.
Lady: What's her name?
Me and Beatrice: Beatrice.
Lady: Peaches? What a cute name!
Me: No, not Peaches. Beatrice!
Lady: Beatrice????!??!??! You really named her Beatrice?????
Me: Um, yes?
People are still mispronouncing her name, but twice now someone has questioned me, to my face, if I in fact named her Beatrice. What is the matter with people??? Andplusalso, I love how Peaches was an acceptable name to this lady while Beatrice was absurd...
In other news, there were 3 Penelopes in the church nursery this morning. At least I named one of my daughters a socially acceptable name.
Happy Sunday from Peaches and Penelope!
