I just love this new chat series. Thanks so much for the fun, Pattie.


Journaling:
IT TOOK MY PARENTS 3 YEARS TO GET PREGNANT WITH THEIR FIRST CHILD - IT WAS ME. MY FATHER BEING 2ND GENERATION SICILIAN AND GOING ALONG WITH TRADITION KNEW THAT MY NAME WOULD BE DANTE BECAUSE, WELL. . . I WAS GOING TO BE A BOY. HE WAS SO SURE, IN FACT, THAT HE TOLD MY MOTHER THAT IF I WAS A GIRL THAT SHE COULD NAME ME. MY MOTHER NAMED ME KELLY. SHE SAYS SHE WAS GOING TO NAME ME KELLY WHETHER I WAS A GIRL OR A BOY. I AM THE OLDEST OF 6 KIDS AND THEY ALL HAVE VERY ITALIAN SOUNDING NAMES (ESPECIALLY WHEN MY FATHER SAYS THEM). IíM THE ONLY ONE WITH A SHORT SYLLABLED, SIMPLE NAME. I NEVER DISLIKED IT AND IíM GLAD MY MOM NAMED ME KELLY SIMPLY BECAUSE SHE LIKED IT.
