@SarahP My cat is named Juniper, but you can name your child that. They can each be the special snowflake of their species.
Hey Gals, I have news for you - feelings of doubt and inadequacy never end, but there is hope. I'm a 51 year old lady lawyer and every time I hear about one of my law school classmates' amazing accomplishments I think OMG I'm such a failure I haven't done anything in my career. Plus, I don't have kids and that routinely makes me think OMG I'm such a failure I don't have kids I'm worthless. Etcetera. Objectively, my life is awesome, but feelings of inadequacy learned in early childhood and reinforced in adolescence and young adulthood are really hard to shake. The only thing that has helped me achieve some sense of peace with myself thus far is Buddhism. Y'all should check it out.
We are Stinky, Bunny, Stinkbunny, Stinkerella, etc. When my husband calls me by my name, I say, don't call me that! And he says, OK, shithead! And I say, that's better. I am 50 years old.
@FoxyRoxy I think "ti" is short for "petite." I know Cajun folks who use that construction too.
