My child is not a condiment!

I have to remind myself to call Daniel by his name. I often call him buddy or buster or kiddo. This week, it's been my-favorite-baby-in-the-whole-wide-world! "Hey my favorite baby in the whole wide world" has a nice rhythm to it. But sometimes the names get mixed up before they come out of my mouth. I've called Daniel "kitty" and Marshall "kiddo" more times than I'd like to admit! I've mixed up buddy and buster and gotten "butter." And this morning I got buster and Marshall mixed up and I called him "mustard!"

Ha! That's hilarious! And perfectly normal. :) I sometimes slip & call Addison "Buddy" although typically that's more of a boy's nickname. And I used to call Sam "Bubby" all the time when he was little. My favorite name for him. :) Good thing I don't have any pets to confuse him with... I do call Chris Sam & Sam Chris a lot too.

For some reason, Emily and McKinley get mixed up all of the time! I call both of the by the other's name--which is particularly funny since it's the smallest child and the biggest dog!
