“Please, call me daddy.”
Liam has picked up an… interesting new habit. He used to call Shauna and I mommy and daddy like a typical kid. Now he’s decided to call us by our first names since he hears us doing that with each other. In fact, it’s a lot like this bit from Animaniacs:
And here I thought the practice was reserved for children that wanted to intentionally snub you.
Our first kids used to call my wife honey 🙂
That’s why parents call each other pet names — honey, sweetie, hey you.
I didn’t even know my parents had names until I was a teenager!
