I’ve been thinking about this here blog. I’ve obviously been updating it a lot more, which is fun for me. It’s my outlet. It makes me feel like I’m more than just a butt wiper, baby swayer, and minivan driver. It’s gives me some interaction with the adult world.
Well, this and facebooking.
But I started thinking “DeVincenzo Family” is kinda a lame name for my blog. It’s just so unoriginal. Actually it’s not. I dare you to find another blog with the name “DeVincenzo Family,” but you know what I mean, right?
So I started to think of some new and creative names for my blog. Here’s what I’ve thought of:
“Welcome to the Jungle” : I like it. I do live with three monkeys, so it makes sense. It also makes me think of the song by Guns N Roses and, really, I enjoy any big haired 80’s rock band. They make me smile. Especially Bon Jovi. They have stood the test of time, don’t you think? I still love me some Jon Bon Jovi. He’s right up there with Matt Lauer. Have I gone down a rabbit trail? I have. I’ll save that for another post. Back to the topic at hand.
“What’s That Smell?” : This one cracks me up! There’s no deep meaning here. Just that I ask this question AT LEAST once a day. Hello! I live in a house full of men. They stink. And pee on the floor. And more often than not, the answer to my question is, “A petrified piece of hot dog stuffed deep, deep, deep down into the couch cushions.”
“Consistenty Inconsistent” : I like this one too. It’s not as funny or cutesy, but it’s very accurate. If I had a quarter for every time I started a “sticker chart” or a “daily schedule” or any kind of discipline plan with my kids (thanks Supernanny) but then changed it midway, or dropped it completely, I would be a rich, rich woman! I actually have a schedule taped to my laundry room door that I printed out the computer to get the boys and I more in sync and to decrease boredom and thus decrease naughty behavior and plan for Elijah to not need to eat the second we get to Caden’s school, etc. Guess how many times I’ve implemented it… zero. I really do have the best of intentions. I swear.
“It’s Good to be Queen” : This one is just a reminder that I will always be queen of my castle. No competition from little princesses here! I’m the number one female in this household! That’s right! Uh huh! Oh yeah! (Honestly, it just makes me feel better that I will never shop in the cute girl section at baby Gap, except for my nieces.)
So that’s what I got. What do you think? I need some help here, loyal blog readers. Come out from the cobwebs and leave me a comment about which name I should go with. Or maybe you have an even better more original name… I would love to hear it! (Plus, getting comments makes me feel better about myself.)
