One of the great mysteries to me is the wide spread fascination and seemingly sense of importance to blazon a child’s name up on the wall in his or her room….Im really not so sure why this is such a common design element in a baby’s room….but it is.
Could it be because you might forget your babies name?
Is it to help them learn their name?
Is it a simple way of labeling? (i think this reason would only fly for Nadya Suleman, those Gosselins or them wacky Duggars)
Maybe this practice is an attempt to instill a sense of narcissism at the onset? Hmmm….Whatever it is….Im not a big fan. However- Im also not a grinch, and like to give the people what they like….so here’s my gift- ways to do it that are less tacky. (Mind you I said “less” tacky), as anytime someone name is on their own wall, FACT: it is tacky. I guess for me, it is sort of like having a giant portrait of yourself above your mantel or couch… and unless you are Miss Piggy, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Cher, or Joan Collins- that look don’t work honey. So go ahead, and put your name on it Mama’s…but do it with style, class, and sass.
