John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt, that’s my name too!

Partially for fun, partially to remember some of the nicknames the girls have implemented in our family, I diagrammed the following chart.

    “Tales of the Two” will slowly morph into “Tales of the Three.” :)

    And I see that Emma and Katya are BOTH Cutie and Sweetie Pie. They don’t get their own nicknames from you? 😛

    The new WordPress has tags, so I (in theory) was going to add those to the interface and use them instead of categories. Of course, the short fix IS to change the name like you said, but really, with the new blog theme, pretty much every post is a “tale of the three” now.

    And I knew that by posting this I’d get attacked! :) I do call Katya and Emma the nicknames Mark has, but not as much, so I decided they were genuinely his. Also, when you’re cleaning or otherwise busy, you don’t really look to see who you’re talking to, it’s just “can you help me with this, sweetie?”

    I just found your blog again, and am going to put it in my Google reader so I don’t lose it again! I love the nicknames! I call Andy AndyPants a lot for some reason, and my nickname for Autumn is Autumnatopoeia. We’ve tried to explain what onomatopoeia is to her so she can understand her nickname. Not sure how well we did, but she doesn’t seem to mind it. Alex’s nickname is usually something like “Alli-Alli-Alli-Alli-Alli-Alli-Alex”. Everyone gets the nicknames Sweetie, Love, Sweet Love, Honey, from me too. Mike doesn’t do nicknames too much, but my dad has Disney character names for the kids. Autumn is Boo, but I can’t remember the other twos names. Anyway, I love your chart, what a fun topic!

    You have some long nicknames! :) Autumn’s makes me giggle. And Boo is just utterly cute, for any little kid.

    It’s funny, though, our nicknames have changed, even in just a few months. The girls now call Toby “Tuby” or “Tubula.”
