My mom is Nonni to the nieces and nephews, my dad is Boppy. My grandmother (great-gradmother) to the little kids was a Grammy to us kids, but the little kids, and now everyone else, call her Gee.

We think my dad's name came about was my niece confused her dad's name (Bobby) with Granpie and it somehow became Boppy.

I only ever had my Mimi and Pop. I guess I had a Grandma at one point but I don't think I was old enough to call her anything when she passed away. I think my dad wants to be Papa, which is fine with me.

I am still on the fence about what I want to be called. The baby's maternal grandmother wants to be called Grammy, which is what I wanted (my kids called my mom that) but I think since it is her daughters baby she should get first choice. I really didn't like Nana, sounds so old to me, but since that baby is here, Nana doesn't sound so bad to me now. My husband will be grandpa. My sons papa lives with us so I think it would be confusing to have 2 papas living together. Husband and I were bickering the other day and daughter came in and asked us what we wanted the baby to end up calling us and I said grammy and grumpy.

NEVERMIND LOL

in my sleep deprived state I finally realized that you are in fact pregnant and that is most likely why your coat doesn't fit and not just a general vent about non fitting coats.

I'm going to need a new one too. I have a feeling this is going to be a cold winter here and I won't be able to go without one.

I think it's going to be cold here too - and we're both going to be super pregnant in the coldest months of the year. I'm trying to decide if I'll be warm enough if I layer a coat under my snowboarding jacket while it's open. I don't think it's gonna work. Hooray for craigslist I guess?

This article really made me laugh lol speaking of baby names

***8220;I cannot handle names that are nickname-y, cutesy, or sound like they***8217;d be on a list of ***8216;All-American Good Guys and Gals***8217;. Anything that could reliably have been found in the popular kids***8217; crowd in a high-school movie is out ***8211; they***8217;re so cheery and preppy. Charlie, Kerry, Amy, Toby. Don***8217;t those sound like sunny, well-adjusted kids? What if I want my kid to be able to be grumpy sometimes, like Oscar the Grouch? And since you asked, no, I can***8217;t name him Oscar ***8211; it got vetoed.***8221;

So ladies (and gents) what was on your pre-nup of NO WAY baby names?
