Nickname of the Month Club

I rarely call my children by their actual names. Its usually some random word or name I've picked up out of nowhere. No real meaning or symbolism to it, just something that I heard somewhere that just kind of stuck.

But I like a little variety in my life. No use having every second of everyday being the same. So every once in a while I like to change it up. Make the switch from Paco to something a little more.....now.

My current favorite just happens to be Ham-bone. Don't ask me where I got it from cause I couldn't tell you if I tried. Something about Ham-bone just resonates with me. I like it. Maybe I'll even change my own name to it. Who knows?

What does Ham-bone mean you ask? To me it means this: Little cute lady who I love very much and want to give too many kisses to and snuggle with.

It is an all purpose nickname. Interchangeable between both Alana and Ava, but probably Ava more often than not. Ava needs picked up? Come here Ham-bone. Alana wants an Otter Pop? Hold on just a minute Hambone. What color do you want Ham-bone? Somebody wants to watch cartoons? Dora or Spongebob my Ham-bone?

Ham-bones are priceless perfect ladies. Don't you wish you had a couple of Ham-bones at your house?

Remember Jack Handy's Deep Thoughts? Here's one about Hambone:

“If you saw two guys named Hambone and Flippy, which one would you think liked dolphins most? I'd say Flippy, wouldn't you? You'd be wrong though. It's Hambone.”

I call my oldest daughter "monkey" or "punk" sometimes, depending on my mood. Occasionally I call my youngest "Stinkopotamous" or "Tinkerbell." I'm surprised they actually respond to their real names.
