Raising a Blended Family


on January 6, 2013

Folks, we use a lot of silly names around here. Like, a lot. More than we use the kids’ actual names.


Mr Moogles.

Missy Moo.



Tiny Dictator.

Big Head Fred.



Lotssss of silly silly names.  Shorty and I often joke that the babies are not going to recognize their own names as they grow up because we call them silly names more than we call them their real names. But how can you not look into their beautiful little baby eyes and see their chubby little baby cheeks and hear their adorable little baby coos… and not want to baby talk their heads off?

I guess there’s not really a point to this post, other than to document the silliness of our every day lives.  I love my Mr. Moogles, and Missy Moo, and Thing One.

    we wondered the same thing, and here the zunzun responds more and better to his name than to the nicknames he more often hears (maybe because he knows we mean business?)!

    I call Jude Bugaboo all of the time!

    Glad to hear we’re not the only ones using “Goober”. Mostly around our house it’s Goober-Lou, these days, which makes no sense, but I can’t stop!
