Origins of Kyd-Wan

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.....okay, about a year ago, right here in San Diego, I jokingly told Kelly that we would name our children Kid One and Kid Two.  As Seussian as that may sound, I couldn't stop there.  And when hanging out with my in-laws (Hi, Auntie Erin and Uncle Omar), they laughed and suggested alternate spellings.  As some of you may know, I kind of like Star Wars.  So, in an effort to fulfill my promise of numerical children, I've opted for Star Wars spellings for said child and child to be.  Kyd-Wan and Kiddttuu.  Although I believe Kelly may use her veto powers on this one, I am here to plea my case.

First of all, both names are non-gender specific.  They could be used for either sex to be teased and harassed endlessly.

Secondly, they could fulfill their father's desire to rule the galaxy.

Thirdly, I think I've just been vetoed.

Oh well, they'll still be great nicknames.  And I can shelter my children from Episodes I-III.  That way they'll still think their nicknames are cool.

More soon.
