A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

Nicknames have always been raff in our household. Just look at Baker Bob. I'm starting to think that he actually thinks his name is Bob. He calls me 'Sepi'. It's a long story involving poo so I won't bore you with the details on how that one came about.

Regretfully the kids have many nicknames, which can make things a little confusing sometimes. In 2 years these are the range of nicknames Manning and Lincoln have had...

Manning                                                      Lincoln
Mansapan                                                   Lincilou
Mans                                                          Linc
Manoo                                                       Loulou

Eva got the nickname Diva even before she was born. It was, and still is a true representation of her personality. This has further been adapted to Divado. (Baker Bob also calls her Chunky Monkey on occasion which I think is going to give her a complex).

I suppose it shouldn't be a shock that Eva's poor confused brothers call her something else entirely. They call her "DeeDee". It is one of the cutest things I have seen these siblings do. Manning calls Lincoln "Ghinkin" and Lincoln calls Manning "Man". The 2 boys quite often get their identities confused too and call themselves by their brothers names. But DeeDee is said with such affection from both her brothers that it makes my heart melt.
