My nicknames

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

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.....!!!!!

    Sounds like you have a great husband. Most of my daycare children start out calling me Ma because they hear my grandchildren call me Ma. Then as they get older they call me by my name.
