Nicknames

Raging Mom has pointed out to me in my comments that I need a name for Son#2. And she's right.

I’ve toyed with names for him on my blog before, but they’ve not stuck. The names that seem to stick most with me are the ones we use with my kids in real life.

There is only one name currently used with Son#2 and that’s The Professor.

My father in law’s best friend, Joe, hangs with us all the time like family. He’s like one of those unrelated uncle types. My kids love him as if he were blood. And Joe loves my boys likewise, having no children as his own, he views them in a grandfatherly fashion.

And Son#2 and his exactness completely cracks Joe up and so about three months ago, Joe started calling Son#2 ‘the Professor’.

But I don’t know. I may call him that here on my blog. But I may stick with Son#2. I just kind of know when its right… and the name Ringo may not stick for Son#1 either as that’s just a passing name here in the house.

Bones is easy because… that really is his nickname.

We'll see... I'm easy peasy. We'll see how it goes.

Why not Spock? Believe it or not, when I was in my 20's some of my friends nicknamed me that for my logic and seriousness. Yep! At one time I was serious.

The Professor works for me.

What about Son #1? How about something unusual...like "Flegnor"?

I like Professor....but then again, Bones sounds more like the Professor...as in professing....

I use my kids real-life nicknames...Boy, Little Man and Girlie. I could in no way come up with something else to call them...it just wouldn't...be right.

I love Professor & Scout. I've begun to call my son Sparky. I called zonker that once & I loved it so much I started using it.
