I do believe it is time for a new moniker...something other than Mom.
Tyler is known in our family as Tyler, Tee, Tman, and Sha Tee Tee...we have been known to call him Tina when he is especially whiny and on the "rag".
Emily has been given a few pet names over the years. She was affectionately known as devil child when she was a baby. The girl cried and cried and cried most evenings. Tyler called her Mee Mee until her could pronounce her name. She was known as Radio (talked and talked) and String (never brushed her hair) by her two grandfathers. Nothing really stuck except Emily, Em, and Hunter with Boobs.
Hunter is known as Hunter (it's a great name) and Mr. H. I like to call hime honey, baby, hey you... As some may know I do call people endearing names. Sorry, if you don't like baby I'll wipe your ass and change your diaper :)
Me? I am affectionately known as Mom. Emily has even recently started Ma…not a fan. My father called me Bug until I went off to college and then for some reason he stopped. Never asked him too.
While the kids were home, Mom was fine. I would, however, like my husband to call me something other than Mom. My given name is fine…Teresa. But, I really would prefer something a bit more intimate.
I am not sure what it is these days. Never really had this issue before. When it is time to shower, I sit under the water forever. I do manage to wash my hair and face but some how I keep forgetting to SHAVE. I go to comb my hair and I have small gerbils under my arms. My leg hair has become so long it snags my pants when I move. If I do not remember to do something about it soon, I do believe Hunter will affectionately call me…
