Now as I have said before we struggle when trying to agree on baby names and while it is only early days, the same can be said this time around. I think it may become easier when we know the baby’s gender but I could also be kidding myself!
Enter the app, that I now consider my little life saver BabyName. Basically you and your partner both connect to the app and become linked. Then you flick through the names, swiping left if you don’t like and right if you do (yes, tinder for baby names!) Any matches that you find get listed so you can go back to them later.
What a genius idea! It is supposed to help prevent arguing over names, I’m yet to believe this one as I may be one who will push a bit if I find a name I love that he hasn’t matched to me. I guess time will only tell, in the meantime it’s fun and I can’t help but get excited when I see a little egg pop up on my screen to tell me a new match has been added to our list!
What did you use as your naming tool? Did you read through books, search through pages on the Internet (been there!) or did you find a little gem like this app?

Until next time,
I sat down to write and I wasn’t sure if this is a topic I should really touch on or not. But I figured we’ve all done it, we’ve all had it done to us and right now we are probably considering it. The good old “unfriending” on social media!
To be completely honest, this is one of the things I hate about social media the most! In “real” life when we are sick of someone or hurt by something they did, we avoid them for a while or stop talking to them all together. On Facebook when you push that unfriend button, the person you have “unfriended” may not be aware straight away but eventually they will know! It’s kinda shit! It creates unnecessary ill feelings and it is very easy for people to become caught up in how many “friends” they have and why someone would choose not to accept their friend request or to delete them from their list.
I have over 500 friends on Facebook and how many do I talk to? 50, maybe more but certainly not often! How many have I unfollowed so I don’t have to see their stuff? More than I’d like to admit! I try not to delete friends because I would hate for them to know, but I have been guilty of it in the past. I make no apology for that. I have also been deleted and blocked and that’s okay.
I feel this part of social media can create issues, people get so caught up in popularity online and it eventually consumes them. Technology is so advanced that most things can be done at the press of a button. Truthfully I love it, but it means that people can act on their emotions and can do things that maybe once they had settled down or had time to think, they wouldn’t have? That includes airing their dirty laundry, but that’s another story for another day.
What do you think? Let me know below!
