Where does the good go


Dear Brady Zac Wynstan,

Yes, I was the one who wanted to name you Brady Zac. Your parents, however, probably figured your innate awesome wonderfulness would be quite enough without actually naming you Awesome Wonderfulness, which is pretty much what Brady Zac is. At least, I’m not the aunt that tried to name you Joaquin! (I KNOW, RIGHT??! *shaking our heads in unison, once you learn to shake your head… um and read parenthetical instructions*)
HI!!! Happy Birthday!!
So many things for you to learn commenting, tweeting, cheering for the Patriots…oh, and don’t worry, I will teach you how to glare at people who put an i in your damn hell ass name where it doesn’t belong.
Oh, whoops.
I probably shouldn’t have said damn hell or ass. Well…or this might be the perfect opportunity to teach you the “if it’s in the bible, it’s not a curse,” rule. Cause that is totally the rule.
Trust me, I’m a lawyer.



P.S. By the way, young man, do you know how long I labored through your delivery? The emails, the blog posts, the texts, the tweets…for like NINETEEN HOURS! I. AM. EXHAUSTED. I only mention it, in case you haven’t commented on my blogs lately. Aww, but look at you, how cuuttee aare you and moommmmyy:

    In honor of the new birth, I will abstain from an inane comment.

  6. Dawn Summers Says:

    His name anagrams to: “Tan wyns!” Which I think expresses his analysis of the 2008 Presidential election. (Both those words are valid in the Scrabble dictionary.) (Today’s inane comment brought to you by a Scrabble nerd.)

  8. Aunt Smokey Says:

    From someone who was actually there… I totally agree: the labor was SOOOOOO hard. I had to sit and sit and wait and wait! And the errands, oh the errands.

    But about the little one–he is very advanced and will be able to shake his head at you and this Brady Zac nonsense, shortly.

  9. Pdov Says:

    Big congrats to the new mom and her very cute offspring! I hope Dawn is okay and Aunt Smokey, I knew you were a resilient bunch.

    P.S. I would like to know if there was anything of significance in naming him Wynstan? (liked the name?, family? other reasons)

  10. Dawn Summers Says:

    Aw thanks, pdov. Yes, I think Smokey and I have recovered from our taxing nephew getting duties. :)

    Thanks Pdov!

    I believe Wynstan means “joyful stone” and that the new parents liked that.

  14. Pearatty Says:

    Thanks. I’m all verklempt.

    Thanks for your submission. I also think that laptop computers are getting to be more and more popular these
    days, and now are sometimes the only sort of computer utilized in a household.
    This is because at the same time that they’re becoming more and more affordable, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they are as powerful as personal computers coming from just a few years back.
