The other day we were in her neighborhood so we stopped by to visit GH's grandmother. As we walked up to her house, a woman called from across the street to a group of kids who were playing in the yard next door.

Woman: "Jaaaaay-deeeeen!! . . . "

. . . pause . . .

Little Boy: "Which Jaden?"


Note: we were in the neighborhood because we were visiting the (no lie) 5th person we've gone to in our quest to Fix GH's Butt. If you ever feel that you have too much money on your hands, I think a really good thing for you to do would be to 1) brag about your emergency fund and general fiscal dominance on your blog, 2) go file your taxes, and 3) have someone in your family come down with sciatic nerve troubles. That'll fix ya. And your little dog too. The good news is that, eleventy-bajillion dollars later, this latest chiropracter seems to be helping him. We hope.

Any quest which involves the word "butt" is a good quest.

My guess would be the Jaden that belongs to that particular woman, but then you never know.

My son has two Spencers and a Preston in his church class and my daughter has a Preston in her class as well. Those two names are the big ones in our ward/neighborhood. I've always wondered about the trend for names that end in '-en' (Caden, Braden, Jaden, etc.)

Seriously, FoxyJ. I used to love the name Aidan after Aidan Quinn. The whole Ai(y)den/Ja(y)den/Ca(y)den/Bra(y)den thing killed it for me.

Killed it.

With our strict[ish] no-rhyming policy, we were saved from waxing Xaden. But we did come close to going with Spencer for #1.

Of course, the name we did go with is pretty trendy here. Tons of twoyearolds with that name. Sigh. Being a trendsetter is a hard hard calling.

Nem, we named our son for Quinn, as well. And when we named him, the name was 247th most popular.

But both me and my husband have ridiculously popular names, too, so we know he'll get over it.

Or go by his middle name. We're cool with that.

I just hate it when life knocks me down a peg or two.

I know a lot of kids whose name end in -en. None of my own though. It's interesting/weird to see the little bubbles of naming popularity.

Hope GH feels better soon. Sciatic pain is horrific.

I don't know if this will help, but my brother is a ProAdjuster Chiropractor and my butt wasn't fixed until after he started adjusting me.

He's in western KS, so this isn't a plug...just hoping to help. Good luck.

I find it so interesting that in view of recent events, no one chose to speak out about the fact that whatever you are paying for GH's butt it's probably nothing compared to what you are going to be paying in the near future now that our dear president (he doesn't deserve a capital P)has sold the country out. But that's just an old person talking who doesn't have to name children anymore, just figure out how to live through retirement without having to move in with our kids. Then maybe we could help with those names after all.

Actually, only about half of what we've done for GH's butt has been eligible for any kind of insurance reimbursement. BUT, and that's a big but, at least we have coverage. I actually have worried more about being flat-out denied coverage at some point than I do about how to pay for the coverage/services I have. Should be interesting to see how things go.

I have en sounding names for my kids and you still love them! But I know what you're saying.

Savvy has 4 Elizabeths in her class. FOUR!

Nemesis said... [reply]

I do admit that it would be hard to be one of 4 Elizabeths, but the name itself I could never have a problem with. It's just such a classic and there are tons of nicknames.

And I do love your kids
