Before they were known as Grant and Maria, they were P-Rone and Estrace in honor of the hormones I had the pleasure of taking for our embryo transfer. Now that they are a year old, P-Rone and Estrace are a thing of the past, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have many other nicknames. So, for no reason whatsoever, here’s a list of the different names we’ve called them over the past year…
Grant – G, G Money, G Man, Squishy (meaning “needy”….used in a sentence “Grant is having an extra squishy day), Squishy Man, and Squishers
Maria – Bit, Baby Bit, Ria (care of Cousin Jake…aka Jake-a-roo), Kathy (as in Kathy Bates in Misery…this kid can change moods in a split second), Smiley McJohnson (care of Jeremy…best not to ask), and Gladys (as it relates to her regular neighborhood watch duties and need to sit in the front seat of the stroller)
The good news is that they do respond to their real names so, I don’t think we’re causing any long term identity issues.
