Missing In Action {a short story}

  When I shared the story behind Mia's name (you can read about that here) I mentioned that Eric loved to give me a hard time about naming our baby Mia. One day he randomly told me, "think about it, Courtney. When we take our daughter to Disneyland and buy her those ears with M I A on the back, we are going to look like the craziest parents! Missing in action?? Can you imagine what all the other parents will be thinking about us? I don't know if I can handle that!" {insert cry/laughing emoji}
I couldn't believe my ears! Eric is such a tease, but seriously! Where does he come up with this stuff? I told him with all the crazy names in the world (Mia NOT being one of them) that I was sure we'd fit right in at Disneyland if people really believed her name was "missing in action", ha ha! 
I will never forget this story because it was so random and SO funny! The FIRST thing we did when we got to Disneyland was purchase a pair of ears for our sweet, perfect Mia :)

Oh my goodness, LOL!! This was thee funniest story!! Your hubby is silly!! Well that's not as bad as your initials being E.E.W. Which we didn't realize we gave our son after we named him, lol! ;) Poor little guy, but at least both of our kids are cute, so it makes up for it, right? ;)

Oh my gosh! I never thought of Mia's name as Missing In Action. The only time I think of that is when all the letters are capitalized. :)
