Baby Boy needs a blog name, and no, Poppet is not an option, thank you very much! Here are some of the names I've been considering:
* Junior. This is what we've been calling him in the family already and it sort of fits, although it is a bit boring.
* Munchkin, or if he'd prefer it, the more macho Munch. I like this one, especially since 'Moppet & Munch' has a nice Laurel and Hardy ring to it, but I've been told that no boy will forgive me for giving him such an awful, public nickname. I have a feeling that may be true.
* Young One, to be called Yo, or when I'm feeling particularly silly (which is most of the time, I know), Yo Baby! :-) I suppose the argument against Munch holds for this one too....
What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments which option you like, and fresh nickname suggestions are
Talking about blog names, both mine and Moppet's Papa's names will also need to change. And I'm not even thinking about an actual real world name for the baby yet. With Moppet, after having looked for and argued about names for the entire duration of the pregnancy, we finally settled on one girl name - the ONLY name out of about 8000 that we both liked - just one day before I went into labour. I remember my relief when the doc announced it was a girl. It's true - first thought that came into my head when I saw that squishy pink face was : yippee, we have a name for her!
Seeing that I have only about 4 months to come up with a suitable boy name, I have much work to do. The husband has already told me that since I was so rude about his chosen options the last time around, he's not going to come up with any options of his own this time. This is a good thing, because he is particularly inclined towards comic book and superhero names - no child of mine will be called Kal-el or Conan! He still retains veto power though, and with his uncanny ability to convert every one of my options into a silly nickname and veto it, it's going to be hard work finding a satisfactory name.
But then, that's only just the beginning of all the hard work, isn't it? Bring it on, I say!
