Here’s the Problem: Our friend, Celine (no, seriously, click it. It will change your life) noticed a disturbing pattern amongst other people’s friends who are having kids and posting about them on Facebook. Fine – you want to rub it in the rest of the world’s face that you’re fertile and in a committed relationship go ahead (I’m satisfied with “it’s complicated” – the status, not the movie. Don’t get it twisted). But if you’re going to tag your baby as Michelle Elizabeth on FB, you don’t get to refer it as “Molly”. If your kid’s birth name is Dylan Cooper, stop calling it “James”.
Actual Problem: Name your kid what you want to call it and leave the nicknames up to the school yard kids. You’re already screwing up your child enough doing whatever else you’re doing, no need to confuse him more.
