What’s in a Name?

Welcome to my mindless musings about my single mom life in rural Washington State. We'll be talking about in no particular order: my occasionally weird, sometimes boring life in a small town, my two wonderful daughters, how much I love jewelry, what I'm cooking for dinner (or just because) and well, pretty much anything else that happens into my brain!

Let's start with my issues with my name!

Birth Certificate:    Melody Sue  

What I'd tell you if we met and I wasn't going to sign anything for you:    Susie

What I'd tell you if you were going to make me sign something:    Melody

What people call me if they've know me since before I was 18:    Sue

What people call me if they were introduced to me by my ex:    Susan

What those people wandering in my house wanting to know when dinner is going to be:    Mommy, Momma, Mom, MOTHER!!!

What my ex-boss used to call when he wanted me to do something:    Sus

What people say when they are feeling song-like:    Susie-Q

What my Hispanic friends call me:    Susanna

If I could go back to being a tiny-tiny baby, swaddled in my momma's arms – I'd tell her: Please call me Melody, or please name me Susie!

And YOU – Mrs. S. I know that little blonde loves you – but someday she is gonna wonder what the heck you were thinking!
