When I was a little girl my Tatay would call me lots of silly names. One is “Atang” because my Tatay’s “Atong”. Another is “Renata” simply because Tatay’s Renato! I remember whem MOm calls me “Renata”, I better hide! Because I am up for a good spank! When I was on my teens, Tatay started to call me “Aiko Balandra” because I look like Aiko (daw) and always sleeping on the couch after tennis practice. lol.
Anyhoo, back when I was preggo, I promised myself I would not give my baby girl any of those funny sounding nicknames.
To the present….
SUrprisa!(para sayo to dondon and star!), I found myself calling Peaches a variety of weird names:
* and recently>>> My tarsier (she loves to cuddle cuddle)
Others have pitched in as well…
*Snowgirl (from Daddy)
We just couldn’t help it eh? Babies are too cute to be called their regular names.
I guess it sounds more “malambing” to be called one of those funny pet names.
What’s your baby’s pet name?
