My Name IS.....

Jayce- at home, that is the only name I have ever been called- unless I am in BIG trouble- and mom calls me Timothy Jayce- thats usually bad news! So imagine how surprised my mom was when she joined my in Primary class a few months ago and heard the teacher refer to me as Timothy- several times-and when she told the teacher that I go by Jayce- the teacher says "Really? He has asked us to call him Timothy."
and then when school started, mom popped into class and Mrs. Page asks mom- "when did you start calling him T.J.?" and mom thinks "now thats a good question- we have always called him Jayce."
And we still do- and probably always will call him Jayce- unless he is in BIG BIG trouble- and then it will be TIMOTHY JAYCE!
I guess you can call him whatever you want to call him- and I can think of a few things that I would like to call him- but I wont-
We chose his name carefully! My father and my brother are both TIMOTHY- dad goes by Tim (or grumpy grandpa, or grandpa Duke as Jayce likes to call him) My brother went by Shane (being named Timothy Shane) and we wanted Jayce to share this name with two great men- but we also love the name Jayce. So its Jayce, buddy- not TJ not T Jayce not timmy or timothy or timmy jayce or timmy J, tim jay- or whatever else you come up with-
This boy is something else!!!!!

Mark thinks he is planning things very well. This way he never gets in trouble. He can always blame it on someone else, Timothy or T.J. or whoever else he is not at that moment. :)

One of my sisters told us when she was 11 or 12 that she was now going by her first name, rather than the middle name that we'd called her to that point ... and she's still known by that first name. :)

haha I love it! I can completely see him being so serious to telling them to call him Timothy from now on!:)
