One of ET’s first nicknames was Destructor (said in a super-hero voice). When he could talk well enough to say, “Stop calling me that!” we did… to his face.
This weekend, ET was sent inside by his big brother to report the latest breakage (just a pair of nail clippers they were using to cut pipe-cleaners).
On his way back out, just before the door slammed shut, I heard the 8-year-old ask,
“Did she say ‘Okay’ or ‘Uuugghh*’?”
*huge sigh of disgust
I guess predictable isn’t the worst thing I could be.

I always used to call one of my sons little prince, every night before he went to sleep. When he told me he didnt want me to say it anymore, because he was too old……I said it more:)
My boys also want me to stop with the lovey dovey names but I have informed them that I will continue until the day I die. Now I’m worried they are plotting my death!
