Pregnancy brain? Lapse in judgment? Ugh!! I told my step-mom that we're naming her Allison Brooke (my son patted my stomach and called the baby Allison so the cat was out of the bag). Her response "Allison Oberlin is a mouthful". Then nothing. No other comment at all. My sister already told me she hates the name (she was hoping for Piper and some other names that were NOT on our list).
I should have known better. My step-mom refused to call my son Brady for the first few days- she called him Brad- because she didn't like the name Brady. It took her friends telling her it was a great name for her to change her mind.
So if you're on the fence about telling family- don't!!! Let me be the example of why NOT to tell family- LOL!
