The JEB! campaign got me thinking about a very important issue. What if my nicknames for my daughter stick?? I mean, John Ellis Bush is a nice name and he doesn’t get to use it!
Growing up, I only knew my mom’s sister as Aunt Muffy. Her dad started calling her Little Miss Muffet when she was little and it stuck. I had no idea she had a different name until I was a teenager and my mom instructed, “Everyone at her office calls her Cathy. We need to stop calling her Muffy.” I guess for some reason she didn’t feel like Muffy was suitable for work?!
Hmm all of this made me wonder, how would my little Mira-Pie’s nicknames fly in the office??
“Wow, Lady Poops-a-lot, you really have a way with spreadsheets!”
“No, seriously, Milk Bandit, you have to tell that story in the meeting!”
“Yes, this is Miss Plumperton. How may I help you?”
“That’s Mrs. Sweety-Muffin to you!”
These are the things that keep me up at night! No, just kidding – it’s my teething, Smooshie-Moosh-Moosh who keeps me up at night. 😉
While we’re on the subject, what nicknames do you have for your kids?
