It took me up until a few weeks ago to make this connection, but the kids, cats and dogs all have names that start with either 'B' or 'M'! It's a nice even combination of 'B' and 'M' names too and it was totally unplanned! Actually all the kids and animals were named by either Rich, me or the kids. Here's the breakdown of the names and their origins:
*Morgan: named pimarily by me as it's a name that I always liked.
*Blake: the only boy name Rich and I could agree on.
*Bear: named by Rich
*Mattie: named by me
*Busch: named by Rich
*Mittens: named by Morgan
See! All purely a coincidence...or evidence that we all think alike? ;-)
