Let’s Talk Nicknames
Let’s talk nicknames.
Do you have one for your child? Did you have one growing up?
We adore nicknames over here. So much so that we use them more than their actual name.
They are a bit silly. And each kid has many. They evolve too.
Cooper started as Super Cooper. Then Super Duper. Then the ‘Dupe.’ Snoopy Joe. Joseph. Sloppy Joe. The list goes one.
Sawyer. Soybean. Soy burger. Soy nuts. Nuts-a-fuss. And when he wears us down we say we’ve been fussed. It’s a real thing.
Harbor. Harbie. Harbie Barbie. The Barber. And we say it like he’s in the mafia. ‘They call him the Barber!’
And lastly Wynter. Wynnie. Wynn-Wynn. And Wynnie the poo. I keep reminding her father that she won’t appreciate that one when she’s older.
In our family they are said with love. A term of endearment.
Also, look how cute these kids are!!!
