We are in our second full week home from school ... and my name has been hollered from every room in the house by every kid and what seems like every minute of every day. Most recently ... about 45 minutes ago when I was trying to start my breakfast ... Norah yelled my name repeatedly for 30 seconds from the bath tub. I don't think she even took a breath. And it wasn't an emergency.
So, we need to work on that, I think. Or else I run the risk of running away!
Here is a post I wrote last fall ... and it has inspired me to crack down on this drastic over-usuage of my precious name. Hopefully it will ...
- help you to see that you are not alone in sometimes hating the sound of your own moniker,
- encourage you to train up your kids to use your title respectfully, and
- give you a good laugh!
That's My Name, Don't Wear It Out!
