So… I’m not much of a writer, but I’ve always liked to write blogs. However, never thought that money/retirement blogs would ever be my thing. So excuse me if, once in a while, my thoughts drift slightly to other things… like parenting 101 – my 18 months old still wakes up several times at night, “dog parenting” 101 – tiring out a dobby with a flirt pole?, or Mindy Kaling’s picture of the day – her post oscars outfit …
But first things first… While hubby was busy carefully choosing our stocks, I was left with helping find a name for the blog (I believe it is still an important part of the blog, if not the most!). Coming with a blog name is actually hard! I wanted to find a name that would be meaningful to both of us. It seemed that every name we would agree on had been registered and for sale… While “TheCoupleWhoWantedToRetireReallyEarly.org” was available, it just wasn’t what I was looking for. As we were giving up on finding the “right” name and ready to settle for “blognamesarehard.com”, hubby said something […] blah blah […] screaming little man […] blaaaah.
To be honest, I don’t remember in what context hubby brought up our screaming little man (yes that 18 months old who still wakes up several times at night… sighs), although it is probably word for word what he said at the time. As soon as I heard this, I knew we had found it, our blog’s name!
Now back to parenting 101 – we need a name for screaming little man # 2, coming soon, August 2016!
And to “dog parenting 101” – wow we definitely need to make our own flirt poles!
And to Mindy Kaling’s picture of the day – just love how she goes from glamour to sweat pants!
