I always find it funny how kids get nicknames…. I know some people specifically pick out their kids’ nicknames and that’s what they call them. Us, however, we’ve somehow ended up with very random, off the wall nicknames for our kids.
He goes by Poe quite often (and even requested in school to be called Poe… I was shocked when I went in to his class to help out and everyone was referring to him as Poe!) When he was littler we called him P-Man but that didn’t stick for much longer than his baby years. He doesn’t have too odd of nicknames, but we do call him things like Duder, Poe-Sniggety, Poe-Ev, Poe-D…. uhmmm… that’s about it.
This boy has quite the slew of random nicknames. Bess is the most common… Bess and Bessie. It started when he was a baby and Porter started calling him Hudson Bessie out of the blue. And it stuck! So, don’t be surprised if you hear us call “Hey Bess!” or “Bessie come here!” It just is natural… but soo soo odd. We also call him Bessie Boo, BesserNater, Snugger, Snugmeister, Sugar Bear
Her most common nickname is AJ by family members, but we also have somehow given her the nickname Tee or Tee-Tee. The only thing I can think of is that it morphed from Sissy (Sissy –> Tissy –> Tiss Tiss –> Tee Tee). Tee/Tee-Tee has turned in to Teeter Totter. I kid you not. We call our baby girl Teeter Totter. AmerJamer (AymerJaymer) and AJ Bada BayJay is another. Ry calls her Smunchkin. Sissy and Sissy Boo or Sis are pretty common as well. When I was pregnant I’d wanted to have her nickname be Mela/Mila (mee-lah) or Meels or Meelie. But… that hasn’t sprouted out yet. Maybe once she’s gets a little older? We didn’t start calling Porter Poe until he was 3 or so. We shall see!
So… what are your kids’ nicknames?
