When I first started "lurking" around on AR, I posted a thread asking how people came up with their names on here. There were some interesting responses, so I thought I'd post a blog on the same subject to see what people have to say. It might be fun to learn this about each other.
My story: When my kids were young and would do something that was really out of line, they knew they were in trouble when I would use the middle name. If they heard me shout out "Kristal Lea!!" or "Stephen Robert!!!!!" they knew they were in trouble. The latter was shouted out waaaayyy more than the former, I might add. Anyways - my daughter was about 7 or 8 when one day I said a cuss word and I hear her say "Mother Ann!" - Mother being my first name to her, and Ann is my middle name. It stuck and to this day she'll admonish me with "Mother Ann!" anytime I say something,usually either a cuss word or if I'm annoying or embarrassing her.
When I was ready to join up on AR, that is the name that came naturally to me; so here I am! Please feel free to add how you got your call-name. To make it even more fun - add a few random facts about yourself that others would use to describe you.
Here's my random facts: I love anything chocolate; I collect lighthouses; I love Stephen King books; my children and animals are my passion; I do not worry about things - especially those things I have no control over.
Looking forward to learning more about my AR friends, and maybe make a few new ones!
