Just Had To Tell It

Troy thinks this post will traumatize our daughter someday, and since I disagree, here it is.

Troy had been traveling a lot as of late and we have not had a lot of time together. He has been especially jet lagged since coming back from China last week.

So...to find a little quality time together Troy took me out to dinner tonight. It was a great meal and we had a lovely time. The highlight of the evening, however, was not my meal, but this conversation Troy had with the waitress.

Troy: I didn't catch your name.

Waitress: My name is Katie.

Troy: Oh! That's out daughter's name.

Waitress: That's neat.

Troy: Is Katie short for something?

Waitress: Yes. My name is Katherine.

Troy: Oh! That's our daughter's name!

Waitress: Really?

Troy: Yes! How do you spell that?

Waitress: K - A - T - H - R - I - N - E

Troy: That's just how we spell our daughter's name!

At this point, Troy turns to me and says, "That's how we spell it, right?"

And I say, "Honey, I don't know how to break this to you, but that's NOT our daughter's name."

Troy: WHAT?

Me: Uh. Sweetheart. Her name is Katelyn.

Yeah. Seriously. Forgot our child's name.

I cannot remember the last time I laughed so hard.

Feel free to give him a hard time.

LOL! Glen just got from China 2 weeks ago and I'm sure he can totally relate to how confusing jet lag can be!

Emily Merchant said...

If you ask me that would seal the deal: no more kids for you buddy until you can remember all the ones you have! Hahahaha.

Heather said...

Bwahahaha, I like Emily Merchant's comment - no more until you can memorize the current children's names!

Dear Denise,
That story is the best birthday present I've had so far.
I am going to send this entry to Drew as well.
TOO DANG FUNNY.

Denise maybe you should print him a cheat sheet to keep in his wallet. Just for times like this.

Our Kate is Katherine, after my mom (who goes by Kathey).
