Things I call my kids for $200, Alex
I do have about forty names I call the girls.
I thought I'd throw this list of names out now, and let you all reference it in the future to verify when I am actually referring to my girls.
It's not easy to tell sometimes.
Some of these are easy to understand how they came about. Some of them really don't have an explanation, other than the fact that I have a crazy mind.
Good luck trying to follow the path of the crazy train!
Here are their shared names:
Squids (my personal favorite and mildly unexplainable)
Lil britches (note there is an "R" in the word)
And now for the more child-specific ones.
Let's start with my oldest, Hadley:
Brynne (sometimes I get them confused)
Brynhadley (sometimes I just almost get them confused)
Hadley-kins (my personal favorite for Hadley--a mildly unexplainable nickname)
Brynne's have a little more diversity:
Hadley (yup, goes both ways--name confusion)
Haddle-brynne (almost, again)
Boo-boo (As in "Hey Boo-boo, let's go get some pick-uh-nick baskets" ~Yogi Bear)
Brynne-a-puss-rex* (my personal favorite for Brynne and an utterly unexplainable nickname)
*All "puss" references should be pronounced like pussy cat, not like discharge. Sorry, no easy way to differentiate those two.
I don't know how many of these will stand the test of time. I'm sure as some of them get retired, there will be new ones to step in and replace them.
I've come to learn that I owe my parents an apology for making fun of them when they called me and my siblings by the wrong name.
Sorry, Mom. Sorry, Dad.
