People are driving me CRAZY. As parents we spend 9 months or even more in some cases picking out names for our children, and we don't sign that birth certificate until we have the names just right. So why is it so hard for people to respect what you name your children and actually call them by their LEGAL first names, and not an abbreviation of their names???? I have asked my family and certain friends repeatedly to call my daughter by her first name, Cayleigh-Grace. Yes when spelling it out it is long, but when you are saying it. Not so much. It has three syllables just like my name does, and it takes no longer to say then my name does either. You pronounce it as one name with no pause in between. I do not understand why it is so hard for people to call her by her correct name, I do not like the name Cayleigh by itself when used for my daughter it just doesn't fit her and it isn't right. So once again, I am asking you to PLEASE do not call my daughter Cayleigh, it drive KS and I nuts and Cayleigh-Grace will usually look at you like she doesn't know who you are talking to, because we only call her Cayleigh-Grace, Gracie, or Grace but NEVER Cayleigh. So I guess what I am getting at is do not call my daughter Cayleigh. Thank you... rant over.
