By Any Other Name
In a conversation with the boys I tried to explain to Mason that I picked his name. He was trying to tell me that when he was a baby he had another name -- No Sam (more on that later). And I was sticking my ground that I was responsible for his suitable moniker.
Finally I told him, "When you were a baby you had no name at all. You were just a blob of pink flesh, so I named you. And that's that."
When his big brother heard this he abruptly interrupted and in serious consternation gasped and said, "Why didn't you name me General Grievous?!?!?"
If your child named him or herself, what would the birth certificate say?
