We’ve talked about all the pieces from turn-ons to tongue twisters, and now I’m curious: what’s your nickname? Mine is…

Fox. Alex calls me this completely, to the purpose that Toby, when he was little, truly thought it was my title. (“What’s Daddy’s title?” Alex. “What’s Mommy’s title?” Fox.)

A couple of years in the past, Alex even gave me a necklace that mentioned “Bunny” (him) on one facet and “Fox” (me) on the opposite.

Seven-year-old Anton is “Tony” and “Bony” and “Emperor Bombonicus.” Eleven-year-old Toby is “Tubby” and “Tubalicious” and “Tubby Wubby Was a Bear,” though he lately requested we name him “Trax.”

Isn’t it wonderful how a lot nicknames can stick? My male cousins, who’re of their thirties, are STILL often known as “Bear” and “Squirmy” by the complete household.

And need to hear a comic story? My aunt’s actual title is Rachel Penelope Goddard, however for nearly her whole life she has been often known as “Lulu” as a result of as a toddler, she all the time wanted to go to the toilet (or “bathroom”) at inopportune occasions, like after they had simply boarded on a ferry or have been in the midst of a grocery retailer. Bathroom-loo = LULU!

What are your nicknames? What do you name your family members? I need to hear…

P.S. A humorous take a look at for child names, and how would you describe your self in 5 phrases?
