Blog Challenge day 3~ What are your nicknames?
I had a few nicknames growing up. My brothers called me sissy because they couldn't say Tiffany. My dad's family called me Tiffy. (Which I absolutely hated!!!) When I got older my brothers could actually say my name but chose to call me Tiff instead. I don't really go by that and I don't like it but they still call me that. So does my best friend and some people at work even though I have repeatedly told them I prefer Tiffany. The best part about these nicknames I don't like is that my daycare kids all call me Tiffy. I hate it but they can't say Tiffany and so I call myself Tiffy to them. Ugh! Oh well! They are worth it. They can all say my husband Tony's name and I wanted them to call me something other than mommy lol! When I used to work at a center one of the little boys used to call me momma Tiff. Now I am called Tiffy about 900 times a day from my 4 speaking daycare kids!
It's amazing how excited you can get when a kid calls you by your unwanted nickname for the first time... I get so excited they can say "my name" that I dont care that I hate the name they call me!
My husband calls me stupid nicknames like smoochie poo loveykins. And sweetie pea. They bug me and I think that is why he does it. One day I told him I was going to start calling him by a nickname he hates and without thinking the first thing that came to my mind was dick chicken. So I started calling him dick chicken (not around the daycare kids of course) and he laughed and said he loved it. He told our friends and now it is a running joke that we add things too. Weird. He really does call me baby and I dont care.... I love it but most of all, even 7 months after being married when he says "I love you Tiffany" not "I love you baby" it still makes my heart literally skip a beat! Yep! I guess I love him too!!!!
Have a good one sparkfriends.....!!!!!
