    Nicknames for your children?

    I am interested to find out what nick names other people have for their children.

    I have always called Ryley- Ryley Bums or just Bums now. I get told off for it!! but we all do it. My Mum will call and say "How is Bums today?" LOL

    Also I call him Munchie Bums (short for Munchkin Bums).

    What nicknames do you all have for your children?

    Jacob is quite often referred to as Snake, Snakey or Mr Snake. He was growing so fast and long when he was little LOL. Plus, DH said something about there being some wrestler called "Jake the Snake" or something like that? I quite often just call him baby or bubbly boy too.

    When we're having a ratty day, Jacob is called Mr Rat LOL.

    Vivienne has HUNDREDS of nick names...
    Viv, Vivi, Vivi-puss, Puss, Vivi-chick, Chick, Chicky, Chickaboo, Boo. Well I guess that's not really hundreds and you can see how they have evolved. Mainly she gets called either Viv or Viv or Boo.

    Blake.. well he generally gets Blakey Boy, Little Man or Buddy. I'm sure he'll get something else with time.

    lani gets called larns, princess and mostly slug lol

    the slug name comes from when she started moving she crawled along on her belly like a slug, now she crawls on all fours but if she wants to go real quickly she slugs along.

    my ds came up with larns and slug lol.

    we call ds mr magoo - dunno why we just do lol, currently i have been calling him the count as he counts everything just like the count on sesame street.

    If anybody asks me I usually tell them I hate nicknames. W gie our kids a name for a reason. That said here are a few of mine for me kiddies.

    Joel - well it was a really long time ago and the only one I can remember is Possum.

    Brandon - was alwas Boo when he was little. I out grew the name and so has he but I think his Father still calls him it occassionally.

    Noah - gets Noah D (usually be me, his middle name is Daniel), DP's family were calling him No No and Blue for a while til I put a stop to it. Umm I'm sure there are heaps of other nice names we call him too but today he's being naughty so I can't remember any of them.

    Tehya - she gets Precious, it started when I was pg with her as that's what her name means. Princess, sweety, baby girl. And atm Little Witch -- because that's what she is being

    Not bad for someone who doesn't like nicknames hey.

    Take care
