A Rose by any other name...


I have so many nick names for Kaitlin. I never really noticed how many things I called her until one of her cousins heard me call Kaitlin, "Bubba". The cousin looked perplexed and said, "Why do you call Kaitlin 'Bubba'?" Hmmm... I don't know the answer to that. I do know that is only the tip of the iceberg, though. Here are Kaitlin's many names:

Kate
Katie
Ramona
Bubba
Bub
Little Bit
Little Bean
Kidlicious
Little Miss
Sweetums
Precious
Presh
Sweetie Pie
Burrito
Baby
Baby Girl
Precious Little
Kitty
The Girl
Little Ham

The funny thing is, each one is said in a specific way/voice and some are in a specific setting. For example: Little Bean is said when I am opening the door for Kaitlin. I always say, "Hop in, Little Bean!" I don't know how it started, but I seem to say it automatically now.


What names do you use for your kids?
