Nicknames come in many shapes and sizes. We acquire some before birth, pick up a few in school, and grow into others as we find our place in life. While some of the nicknames will inevitably be embarassing, if we’re lucky, there’s at least one name that gets to the heart of who we are.
Personally, I’ve been thinking about nicknames a lot lately, as my husband and I prepare to welcome our first child, a baby whose gender we don’t know, but who has been called Monkey from day one. We’ll see what other nicknames he/she picks up in the coming years. And it just so happens I’m in good company. Ali Edwards recently blogged about her new little girl’s growing list of nicknames (which includes Peaches…how cute is that??” And my adorable friend Emily is getting ready to welcome her little Spud.
So your challenge this week….document a nickname. It can be one of your own, or a name you have for someone special in your life.
Here’s what we came up with this week:
Hope you’ll play along!
