Little Pablo has christened his sister with her own Pablo created nickname. Beebz. You know, short for baby. A preppy baby. One with little saddle shoes and lots of plaid. And bows, don'cha think? I am guessing so. He calls her this all the time. What freaks me out is that my partner started calling her Beebz too. eek.

I guess I don't have much room to talk, since I called her Punky-Punk (or Punk for short-short) since birth. She came out with a TON of hair and for months it stood up like a faux hawk. Hence Punky like a Punk rocker. My partner was aghast, especially when I shortened it to Punk.

Beebz is better only because a 4 year old created it, but if it becomes an ongoing nickname, I worry about how she will be unduly influenced to be... well, Beebz-like. On the other hand, I called my brother Bubba and you can't imagine a more not Bubba like guy, unless a balding computer geek comes to mind when you hear "Bubba." I guess there is hope.

And I am still calling her Punk. Maybe the two will offset each other.

  1. I'm only calling her Beebz because Pablo does. Not because it's my favorite pet-name. My favorite pet-name for her is Cutie-pie.
