She is one of my blogging idols. I adore her and think she is rather bright and witty. She has started posting blogging tips which were requested by so many of her

The great Jennifer let me in on a little secret of hers: her kids’ names, Carson and Ella, are not their real names, but names that were in the consideration before they were born.
So… I’m asking y’all to give me some input.
Should my kids have ‘real’ names?
