Thread Name: Trouble remembering names?
Subject: RE: Trouble remembering names?
Advice too late. Don't give your kids similar sounding names. Jossica and Jeshua? Of course now that Ben is old enough to be a big kid, I start calling him Josh as well. But I think the worst this summer was, after Leiv, one of my AFS kids left, I kept calling the other, Axel, Leiv! He's an only so he's not used to being called someone else's name.

But WHY does a name you have one minute, go away the next, and only after sometimes as much as a day of panicky mental scrambling, deign to reappear?

At least I haven't forgotten my own name, though for most of a year once I forgot how old I was. I was a teenager then, NOT in my dotage (nor even yet)
