There is much spoiling going on around here because grandma doodle and grandpa tuesday are here!
You read that right, their nicknames are doodle and tuesday. There are really short, mostly uninteresting stories behind both of these nicknames too. Kind of like my sister Lauren’s nickname being “stu”. It’s not a great story like you may think
Oddly enough, I longed for a nickname growing up. I thought only cool people had nicknames and I just wasn’t the kind of person that got one. I wish I could say that I finally got a nickname and it made my life better, but it never happened. For just a moment Justin called me “peas”, which was a nickname pulled from my maiden name, but that didn’t stick either.
But around these parts, between my mom, dad, husband and sister, almost no one is called by their real name. My brother is the only one besides me that didn’t get nicknamed either. So I guess he and I are in the “uncool club” together.
Since David takes just slightly after my dad, we occasionally call him wednesday. You know, because he takes after tuesday.
We also call him Tuna, but that’s a story for another time (also not very interesting).
Well, it’s about time to wrap up this blog post. I feel like all I’ve done is confused you and left you wondering “why the heck do you call your dad ‘tuesday’?”
Maybe one day I’ll get a chance to sit down and write out the stories of the nicknames for you. I may have to embellish to make them interesting enough to read.
Have a wonderful weekend!
