My daughters all have blonde hair so I call them Blondie, Chic, Gorgeous. And my son Handsome. We call the baby in the house Babycakes.

A friend called me "Momma Candace" to her children. And I've adopted that with other children who I babysit etc.

I was looking for my mom one day in the house and I called out "Mother!" real loud and my 18 month old daughter mimiced me saying "Munner" heh, so instead of Grandma, all the gkids call her Munner. And my dad is Grampsy.

We also add flourishes to names, we add "bob" to the end of any name.

When I was a kid they called me Candy.

Hmm, dh, I just call him the general sweetie, etc. How boring am I?

There is a time to be born and a time to die. A time to laugh and a time to cry, but there never seems to be enough time to knit.-Anon. (or to visit KH!)

Now lemme see...

Any child younger than three is automatically Babykins. They all answer to it, swear.

When my brother Jason was small, our Grandad started calling him Bart. Even though he's 42 now, our Mom can still stop him in his tracks if she says it in just that perfect "Mom Voice."

Our dad was "Dude" for several years.

Somehow, Mom's always been Mom. I alternate between her title and calling her Laura. Guess it depends on whether I need a mother or a friend at the time.

I call DH Sweetface (not in public) or Scoot (for scooter, since he rides a Harley).

My nickname was Andy until my first day of kindergarden. There was this mean boy named Andy, and I refused to answer to it after that. When I was young, my doctor called me Toad. Everybody used it for a few years, then they all stopped. I kinda miss it.

DH calls me Ace cause I got A's in college.

The one thats most common came from a 5-year old who couldn't wrap his mouth around Andrea, so he called me Anree. That's who I am to family and close friends.
