If you know me very well you know that I don’t call anyone by their real name. I make up names for everyone. Troy’s name is Punkin Lunkin. Cabell is Princess Wu Wu which often gets shortened to Wu. Cassidy is Soppa Pia which gets shortened to Soapy. Ok, so that brings me to Colby. His name is Doodlebug. Since he has gotten older and so much more mature it is no longer Doodlebuggy like it used to be it is just Doodlebug. And alas, I shorten his too. He goes by Doodle much of the time.
Well I was going through a stack of papers the other day and I found a poem that Doodle wrote for me last year. It makes me smile inside. I laughed, I cried, it moved me, Bob! Ok, if you don’t have kids you won’t get that joke. Anyhow, here is how it goes (unedited):
Hair flowing, a whisper in the wind,
A sun ray encasing me in a hug,
Always laughing, always
Funny, ready to help with problems,
She reminds me of spring.
Doodle made me smile today! Oh I forgot to tell you my nick name! My kids call me Mommy Palommy and Troy calls me Punkin Pie. As if you even needed or wanted to know that! He he!
Alright so spill the beans. What is your nickname? Keep ’em clean people! 🙂
