The Blogger Formerly Known as Moppet's Mom

Can I just be TBFKAMM or some unpronounceable symbol too? I tell you, this (nick)naming business is frying my brain.

And
I still haven't got a viable real life name for poor Munch yet.

Anyway, I've decided there's no point in spending time I really can't spare over a nickname. So I just closed my eyes and jabbed my finger at the shortlist and picked the one my finger landed on. (Ok, I cheated, I picked the one my finger landed on on the third try.)

Since a major part of my blog identity is being mom to M&M, it seemed to me that I should stick to a candy theme. So what sort of candy would be me? As the owner of a rather distinctive head of curly hair, the choice was clear: Candyfloss!

That's it peeps. The Blogger Formerly Known as Moppet's Mom is now Candyfloss.

All that remains is to find a suitably sweet name for the husband. Any ideas for Chocolate ka Baap?


(Oh and the picture is courtesy Google, and nothing like me in case you were wondering :-) My own hair is much curlier, and right now it is not pink. It was once though - remind me to tell you about that sometime.)

Just Like That said...

Well, Candyfloss it is indeed for M&M's Mom! Was missing you so much would have quite settled for TBFKAMM or even worse!
Pink!!???? Why? Story, fast...

Poppins said...

Nice! You're not bad at this nick thing at all. And your margin-al change in the template is why I miss blogger sometimes.

26 weeks huh? Time sure does fly.

I like I like.
But now I have to really stop myself from thinking of chocolates and candies and buddhi ke baal (Candyfloss in our own matrabhasha) whenver I read your blog or your comments! :P

Daisy said...

K 3 said...

Hmmm, maybe your husband can be Mr.M&M - and he can choose from the wide variety of colors - red, blue, orange, yellow! ;)

noon said...

Noooooooo! Candyfloss just doesn't suit you! Nay vote from me!
please dont' make it final!
Mr.M&M sounds good!:)
Choco-pop sounds good too.
Mcube sounds good for you! :)More you than candyfloss is! Too ditsy sounding for a brainy one like you! I refuse to accept this blog name for you! (I know you are saying - hahn - do I care?!) :)

Candyfloss said...

LOL, guys! Ok, confession time - I'm not a 100% ok with Candyfloss, but I figured I wasn't going to waste too much time with a nickname. Plus I'm sure any new name I come up with is going to take some getting used to.

The husband REALLY hates it though, and has been grumbling non-stop ever since.

I like Chocopop for him, but I can imagine some major gripes. I may just have to stick to boring old initials just to save my marriage!

Updates in a bit :-D

Mala said...

Harrumph. I don't like Candyfloss either. So there.

Gauri said...

Candyfloss :-D OMG !! I should not have read this now because I cannot even laugh - my throat is that badly infected :-)

And I second K's Mom - ChocoPop !!

So tell me, does Moppet's nick change too ??

karmickids said...

nah no candyfloss. you're like dark bitter chocolate, wicked.

upsilamba said...

Gee....LOLL!!!
Was late to the naming ceremony party.
Candyfloss it is and I second Chocopop too.

(whispers 'candyfloss' in ex-MM's ears three times)

thelastbyte said...

TBFKAMM, methinks Candyfloss lacks "substance". Now, Curly is a badass name - worthy of Moppet's Mom. But if you must sugar-coat it, I strongly suggest you take the quiz to figure out what kind of candy you are.

Candyfloss said...

Null Pointer: I did consider Curly (and Moe for the husband) but then went with the choco family theme. Oh, and the quiz - apparently I'm a lollipop! Not much better than candyfloss, is it? :-)

bird's eye view said...

Love your name. How about lolliPOP for the dad?

DotMom said...

hello, candyfloss! Dang. I have been toying with the idea of a name change too. the mom in my moniker is getting too restrictive.

Candyfloss said...

Dotmom: Welcome back! Yes, when I decided to change, I wanted to drop the Mom thing too, but I must tell you, it's really hard to first pick and then get used to a new name.

And to all of you who hate the name and have told me so (and those of you who are too polite to tell me), just give it a few days ok? Maybe it's just a question of getting used to...

Lavs said...

Hi Candyfloss!!!

I like the names-candyfloss & Chocopop.

That reminds me i should think of blogger names for hubby & baby...

Squiggles Mom said...

I am so behind the times! Now I get it :)
