I had a friend last weekend tell me he was soooo worried about calling his new Girlfriend by his exes name! He accidentally did because they were just talking about her earlier, and it slipped out!
Must be because he has been a topic of recent conversation.

So I went on a trip with my friends a little while after I was first married to my ex-husband. It was a great weekend, but I was newly-wed, so I got back to my husband all excited to see him after being gone for two whole days. He bear-hugged me, pulled me onto the bed, and I put my head on his chest and sensually sighed, “Oh Jane.”
He bolted straight up and was like, “What kind of fun did you and your friends have?”
Now Jane is a very good friend and we had tons of fun on that trip, but I am not interested in her romantically. No idea where that came from. I’m just glad I didn’t put a male friend’s name in there
I think you keep it from happening again by putting the ex out of your mind when you’re done with the immediate kids-dealing-with-him business. You’ve probably got a lot going on because you’re a wife and mother and sister and daughter and so many other things, so you’re bound to get distracted. Just repeat DH’s name like 10 or 15 times in your head or out loud if you’re alone every time you think of him and that will probably put him at the front of your brain.
It’d be way worse if you were talking to your stepmom about how *DH’s name* is being such a jerk and the kids are suffering for it!
