Whats in a name!
For the past couple of days I have been lurking around and reading a lot of blogs... There were 2 of my pet peeves being written about a lot... Mommy Bloggers and the Husband-Wive divide. I wanted so much to write about each of these topics and sat down to do just that. Now all of you who know me, know how my mind works.... and there it went on a spin again.. remnicing a conversation that took place recently in our household..
An email had arrived from my aunt .. and she had asked how "Nantu" was.
DH: Why is she calling him Nantu?
Me: Oh well maybe she has read my blogs you know
a barb intended here... i have asked and asked and though he reads my poetry blog.. he stays away from the rants on this one .. boohoo!!
DH: Do you remember how much time and energy we spent in naming him...
Me: Do I remember? We only spent all of 9 months arguing over it
really.. we are so finicky arent we?
DH: His name means "Endless" and now with this nick name its just the opposite
Me:(thinking uhoh I never did think of that did I?... loudly) But Nantu is such a cute name.
Meanwhile enter Nantu (He has to take part in every conversation..)
Nantu: Mommy you call me Nantu and I will call you Preetu
DH - Exasperated looks at both of us...
Me: Oh I know .. I have a better name for him to use on my blogs.
Me: Cheeky Monkey!
Nantu starts the refrain... I am a cheeky monkey.. I am a cheeky Monkey.. and I join in .. You are a cheeky monkey..
Mom and Son doing a little dance here... DH walks out of there shaking his head...
So now you know who the cheeky monkey is .. and who the bossy monkey is....
