Imagine my surprise tonight as Macy is working on her homework.
When I was in middle school, 1 out of 5 girls were named Jennifer Lynn. I went through a phase where I said my name was Jenni, Jenny, and then started putting Lynne. Anything to make myself different from the others. That's the main reason Macy is Macy instead of Emily, Hannah, Chloe, Jessica, etc.
Macy: I've been spelling my name differently at school.
Macy: (writes MACEY at the top of her paper) I like this spelling better.
Macy: I don't know. It just makes my name longer.
It cracks me up that she did the same thing I did, when I worked so hard to pick an unusual name for her.
