        LOL that's a good story for the kids!

        Catherine what a crazy situation with the girl who has similar info to you. Once DH went to pay a parking ticket and the lady said he had a warrant for some crime. The sheriff was going to arrest him until they checked his social and figured out it was someone else with his name & birthday in L.A. LMAO! It was crazy!

              Man, living a lie your whole life...hehe not really. FI's name is Michael, but at the hospital they put Micheal. So if that wasn't bad enough to give him a girl name, they even put it on pink girl paper that they issue from the hospital. He asked his mom what the heck happened and wondered why she didn't catch it and she said she didn't know. Two possibilities (A) she was too drugged up to realize either with drugs or happiness not sure which or (B) she is retarded and can't spell and when the nurse took it to who ever to print it they saw Micheal so assumed girl!

              We were afraid of not being able to get his passport because of the misspelling but it didn't turn out to be an issue.

                Wow. All these stories are crazy. When I was at the hospital I was still a bit out of it when they came around and had me fill out the paper for Aiden's birth certificate. Brian wasn't with me, so I filled it out while not 100% coherent. After I submitted it, I started freaking out that maybe I had spelled something wrong. Luckily I didn't, but I could definitely see why people wouldn't catch these mistakes (the cases where parents didn't catch mispellings).

                  My friend Elaine always thought her middle name was Marie, cuz that is what some paperwork said, but then a few years ago, she found out it was Maria. Not quite as bad as yours, but similar! Can't wait to hear the explanation

                    You're so close ... getting excited? Nervous!?
                    yah we tried to figure out away for us both to have something from each other. I am taking on his pretty funky last name so it's the least he can do!
                    I am pretty excited--now that the drama is over I can just work on all my odd jobs.

                      Are you catholic? Maybe Marie was your confirmation name?
