Do you ever think about nicknames we give our kids? Maybe I am alone here, but my kids have tons of nicknames. I don't know why. I chose the names Madeline (prnounces Madelin)and Owen because I like them. We chose the middle names Margaret and Charles after family members. Yet I rarely seem to call my kids by their actual names.
Here are Madeline's nicknames:
Owie (pronounces Oh-ee)
Destructor- his tendency to destroy things
Monkey- the kid can climb!
Owen Owen Owen
I have no clue why I gave my kids so many nicknames. The names they get definalty reflect my mood as well as theirs.
So what about you? What do you call your kids?
