Tiphani...

I was so cool when I was 9 and I learned that the letters "ph" put together sound like an "f". What a novel concept. Well, I just happen to have 2 F's in my name. Why on earth would I want to spell my name like everyone else? So, I petitioned my parents to legally change the spelling of my name to "Tiphani". I have NO idea why on earth they said no, but it does remind me of a line from a Garth Brooks song... "Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers."

Alas, I survived, two F's and all. But I ask you....how on earth is a young boy supposed to survive varsity football with a name like SPARROW? Come on Nicole Richie. Give the kid a break. You named him after a bird. Bless his heart.

And now they have a "Harlow Kate Winter Madden" and a "Sparrow James Midnight Madden". Bless both of their hearts.

Not to mention that his middle name is Midnight! Yes, the only cool thing about Sparrow is maybe "Captain Jack Sparrow" from Pirates of the Caribbean...
