Let's just get right down to it. We chose a name for our little girl that was different and unique. It's Hawaiian and pronounced a specific way- phonetically correct. I guess some people missed that part of elementary school. Kalea does not equal Kayleigh- it's pronounced Ka-lee-ah. I only bring this up because we attended Steve's work Christmas party last night and on more than one occasion my child was referred to as Kayleigh- even after we had introduced her as Kalea and used her name a few times to try and politely correct people. So today I wake up and the first thing my mind reflects upon is how often in her life Kalea will have to correct people, and boy I sure hope her teachers at school pronounce it right, and I hope she's not too shy to correct people... My mind doesn't normally work this way, and it makes me worry that maybe we should've given her a more North American name, like Kayleigh.
