I guess giving nicknames to your children is hereditary. We all had them. My Dad was their author. My brothers were 'Plunkett', 'Keeble' & 'Pistol'. I was 'Chibbers'. Don't ask, I can't explain. Well Plunkett is from the football great Jim Plunkett...that's the only one that makes any sense.
Some of my kids are 'Curly', 'La La' , "Poodle", Bibbles, 'kodapuff'' , 'mackieboy', 'smelsey', 'Ekka'.
some are just variations of their names, some are just out there. I think it is fun and affectionate.
so tell me....what are your children's nicknames?
