A Rose By Any Other Name

Top Things We've Actually Called Our Children Instead of Using Their Given Names:

Charis:
Punky
Chubs (these first two were used in her infancy)
Munchkin
Baby Girl
Ruthie
Roofers


Judah:
Ju-Baby (Charis coined this one when she decided, mid-word, she couldn't say Judah)
Budders
Bubba
Bubba Gump
Judah Judah Bo Budah

I hope we don't scar them for life.

I read your 2 latest posts and had to laugh because they looked so much like some of mine. :-) It's nice to know we're not the only ones who terrorize waitresses. And the list of names was hilarious. I look forward to reading more!

I call my Jude, "judo." More masculine than judy, I think.
