Guest Post – Parenting Fails – My Girls and Me

Welcome to a my guest post series in which I ask other wonderful parenting bloggers what their biggest, funniest parent fail is! Up first we have a wonderful blogger, Her name is Becca and you can find her over at My Girls and Me.

My Parenting Fail.

My fail consists of lots of things being taken back and exchanged.. OOPS.

Through the rest of my pregnancy with Rosie, I LOVED the name Anna-Belle. I was in love. I would tell everyone her name was Anna-Belle and i was never going to change it. I would call her in while i spoke to her in the womb and i people would actually refer to her as Anna-Belle.

Well, i gave birth all nice and smoothly and the moment she came out i looked straight at her dad and said she does not look like an Anna-Belle. We sat for ages and tried to think of names we liked but nothing suited till the midwife said “Oh what lovely rosy cheeks she has.” and boom it clicked. We announced her birth and when it said “Rosie-Belle” everyone was confused (oops haha!) a few people even had to return gifts that had said the name on it. (Sorry everyone)

That is my most biggest parenting fail, even to the point where we had Miyahs name picked out and there was no way on this earth it was being changed because of Miyahs dad but people still refused to till i gave birth and she was actually names Miyah.

    OMG this is so funny! We also had set boy and girls names for our little boy and I can’t imagine if he hadn’t suited it -luckily he did, and we didn’t really tell anyone our planned names!

    Something like that happened with my aunt! She was adamant my cousin was going to be called Bethany, but when she was born it just didn’t fit!

    I think names are really hard, sometimes like you say, the name you spent months loving just isn’t right. We’ve got an idea of what name we like this time round but I’m keeping quiet until baby is here!
