Nicknames

Jeff and I come from nickname families. Big time. Even now my siblings call me Shebbs, or Chelle-belle and Jeff's brothers call me Mitch. Some of the names our siblings have come up with when we were kids are strange and unexplainable- Chooka, Mustard Fish, GoGo, Mutt, Grunty the Ice Pig, etc. So coming from such an upbringing left us almost unable to call our children by their real names. Of course, we use Dingus for all of them, but they also each have their own.

I have struggled with whether or not to use my kids real names on my blog. I guess I still haven't decided, but for now, I think I'll use their nicknames, it comes as naturally to me as their real names anyway. So in order of birth, here they are:

Nanos, Bearbear, Jojy, and Gabey...

Hi! I'm posting on your blog so you know I looked at it and I care about you. I love that picture of your boys and I think you should stick with nicknames, although, it wouldn't be hard to figure out the youngest one's name.
Love, Sara

I love nicknames too but it wouldn't really work for my kids oops I mean kid. It would be pretty easy to figure out who I was talking about :) I'm glad that I made it to your "list" of friends. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I love nicknames! We call our little guy Pato - spanish for duck. I also call my sister Wendy, "Squeege". I'm the only one that calls her that. I love it. She loves it.
