Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
I miss the Muppets too. The names we call our children?
BOY, Buddy, sweetie, JoJo, Benny, Satan (kidding, we only do that behind his back)
My children get called “pork chop” a lot. We always get dirty looks from older ladies in the grocery store whenever we do.
Good lord he is beautiful.
I switched from being an Elementary Ed major the year I worked at a preschool as well. Maybe it should be a prerequisite.
Anyway - we have tons. He started as Shumai (as did Boo) and now he’s Bubby, Bubbaloo, Bubs (that’s big sister), chunk a monk, and Kuma (husband).
We have yet to shorten his actual name in any way.
Yes, me too (is this an odd trend?)—I was in the special education program and switched to computer science after my first teaching practicum. Well, technically I TRIED to switch to computer science but the dean informed me that girls don’t usually like computers that much. So I left and started my computer business.
We have WAY too many names for Braden.
Baby B, The Boy, B, Sweetie-Dee, Boogerdeenie, Poopteenie, Pooptee, Bubba, Boogerdeedoo… Yes, a lot of them revolve around Boogers and Poop. Chalk that one up as a summary of things around here….
Leslie started calling her “Bozette” (as in, the feminine form of Bozo) and it has totally stuck.
We commonly call Charlie “Little Man.” He loves it when we call him “stinky boy.” He finds the word “stinky” delightful and tries to say it in a very endearing toddler manner. For a few weeks before he was born and while he had parked himself under my ribs he was “lard ass”- it was a somewhat trying time for a pregnant mommy…
We call our oldest son Buddy and our youngest son Monster. My husband has several nicknames for the kids that I can’t keep track of. Our second girl is called Nanny-doots by her grandparents. I admit to using sickening sweet names for the children when not using their real names. Very out of character for me.
My son Joseph gets called Joe-my-Moe, Bugaboo, Monster, Jofus (what he used to call himself) and Toots.
My daughter Elle mostly gets called Enne (that’s how she pronounces her name) and Elle Belly. She’s so going to hate that when she’s older.
Jake we call “Jake The Snake”.
Drew we call “Drewby Doo”
Emily we call “Red Eye” because she cries all the time and her eyes are always red.
Molly we call “Pain In The Ass” ... oops, I mean, “Molly Bug”.
He is so freaking cute. I wish you lived closer we could set up a playdate and marvel over the cuteness of our kids. And we would know we were conceited just truthful, right? I call Bear by a lot of nicknames. Bear is obviously the #1 nickname as his name is not actually Bear. He is also sugarbooger, bug (pronouced Boog, short for SugarBooger), Baby Bear, Care Bear, Bear Bear, etc. I wrote a whole post on it awhile back.
I usually call Carter - Little Dude. Actually I think I call him that more then his real name.
Punkin, Punkin Head, Farty Britches Kid…FBK for short, Turd Monkey, Sweetie, Pretty Girl, Poopy Butt, MR. Poopy Butt, Stinky Butt…
I’m SUCH and awesome mom, as you can see.
Boogerbutt & Peque?o… even though I didn’t even know that was actually a word in Spanish…cause I never took Spanish…
Then Bones, which morphed from T-Bone
I’m always calling John something, other than his name. Things like ‘Tootie’, ‘Tooty-Too’, ‘Kooky’, whatever. It looks obnoxious when I type it, but it’s funny. Well, maybe not to anyone else.
Such a sweetie!
Peanut, lovey bun, babe, sweet boy, you name it!!!!
I call Shark Boy: Buddy, Sugar, Darling, Sweet Boy, Dude
I call Honey Bear: Sweet Baby, Honey, Bear, Chub-Ball, Big Guy, and My-Angel-Straight-From-Heaven.
Our names for the various children are “Ofeeda”, “Miss stinky picklebottoms”, “Meemoo” and we have an “e” name and I call her EIEIO.
Wow. I really sound crazy.
He is a cutie. We call our baby boy:
I’m sure there is more, but those pop in my head right away.
I think the world would be a much happier place if we could just watch “The Muppets” again.
I have a few nicknames for the girls but since Mom brain takes over so much, I end up forgetting their real names and so I end up using a collective name made up off all their names. Its the first syllable of each of their names smooshed into one word.
Very effective as all 3 will respond. LOL!!
