Mommy and Daddy's Little Accident

I have four kids, ages 16, 14, 11, and 2. We call the two-year-old "Mommy and Daddy's Little Accident." That's just a nickname. I wanted to name her "Oops!" but my wife wouldn't let me. She said, "What kind of name is 'Oops!' for a kid?" I said, "It's better than 'Aw, crap!'"

My wife's funny about our kids' names. She wouldn't let me name our son "Version 2.0," either. So I said we should name him "Beta." She said why "Beta," and I said, "Because we have no idea how he'll turn out, but we can't release him for 18 years."

Anyway, we finally decided to name him "Rashaun." We think it goes well with his three sisters, Shamique, LaWanda, and Tamika.


  1. I want to name my child Senator. Boy or girl. When else in my life will I get to say, "Senator, you listen to me and you listen good..."?

    By the way, I would have spelled it like this: Ra'Shaun.

  2. I'm gonna steal the Senator line if I do the name bit. Keep 'em comin', keep 'em comin'.

  3. Line hell, I can get a whole bit out of this. "Do your homework, Senator!" "Go to your room, Senator!" "You're getting a spanking, Senator!" OK, maybe not that one.

  4. Yeah, too many people have already done the whole spank a senator thing. What a great campaign promotion.


What do you think?
