SHARE some cute nicknames for your kiddos...
When my son was a baby.. I called him Monkey... Which progressed to 'Monkey Jones'... and I have NO idea why... But it was often and used more than his name as I would play with him and he would 'hide' and I would call out, "monkey Jones....".. I also called him 'bear' ..
My daughter was "Missy Lou"... and that was because she was super mischievous... and I would playfully say to her.. 'What are you doing with that Missy??".. and she would laugh and crawl away and I would chase.. and then when I would get more playfully "mad".. I would throw in the LOU part.. like when I really AM mad and their middle names are used..
I called them both "squirrels"... and "love nuggets"... Squirrel because when they were getting tired and easily agitated.. I would tell them they were getting "squirrely".. I have no explanation for love nugget.. other than I might be crazy.
Reading this now. it all sounds so dorky and odd. lol..
So.. now everyone has to share!!!!
