How does "Menendez" sound as a middle name?

"How was L.E.O. today?" Eric said when I got home this afternoon.

"Kicky," I replied, lying down.

He touched my abdomen in what's becoming a familiar motion and immediately got a curious expression on his face as L.E.O. kicked straight into his hand. "Indeed."

Then I got a curious expression on my face because there was suddenly a lot of pressure under his hand. "That's not you pressing down, is it?" I said.

"No...that's her pressing up."

Then I jumped as L.E.O. gave the biggest kick she's given yet, directly at Eric, who leaped away. We stared at each other. "I'm pretty sure she just tried to kill you," I said. I patted my belly. "Honey, at least finish gestating first."

Oh good, our feisty daughters can keep each other busy. "What are we doing tonight, Brain?" "Same thing we do every night, Pinky..."

Okay... we're not the only ones thinking of "Pinky & The Brain"...

It's usually the theme song in Su's head as we read the posts.

You know, the only thing holding Brain back was the fact that he was a mouse. Though I suppose it was also an advantage sometimes.
