Dave and I have been talking about "bear" and the fact that he will be going to Kindergarten next year and we still call him "bear". We started calling him "bear" just a few minutes after he was born. He was a huge baby weighing 10lbs 1 oz and 22 in long. We also had a hard time naming him. I knew I wanted his middle name to be David but never had a first name. We named him Matthew David after he was about 5-6 days old but the name "bear" was already stuck in place and it is still stuck and fits him. But...kindergarten is coming up and he has to spell his name "Matt" and his teachers call him Matthew and his friends all call him "bear" and I don't know if it is too confusing to him or too babyish or what??? What would you do?
