The user name thread made me wonder what all of you call your children. Nick's "nick" name is Nick and..... Nicky Nick Nick knack Picnic Picky Nick (he's a nose picker.........eeeewwwww) Nicholas Pickleless Parker BUT...... When reading the intro of Think Like a Pancreas about the origin of the words diabetes and mellitis, Nicholas got a new nick name......."Sweet Pee". My dh and his older brother ALWAYS picked on their younger brother and called him Sweet Pea (from Popeye, I think). They are 8 and 10 yrs older. Now Nick has taken on the name (with a diabetes twist). But he thinks it's funny.
