When we named our children, my goal was to give them each a different first initial for the sole purpose of making noting and labeling just that much easier. I'm all for long-term simplicity. No writing out the whole name in this house - the first initial is all we need. I learned this trick from my dear friend Becky who named all eleven of her children with this in mind.
What I DIDN'T think of though is that if you flip the W (Wendy) upside down, it becomes an M (Mark)
Because of my lack of foresight - I now have no clue which one of them to blame for the water bottle left on the kitchen table this morning.
