I’ve written before about my habit of teasing of my children, and whether or not it is cruel to nickname a child Roy, so when I came across this picture it made me laugh, and I wanted to show you.
I thought maybe I could take Belle here for her next birthday:
I reckon she’d love it. She loves it when I call her Roy.
Personally I think a good nickname is an integral part of family life, a sign of affection, and a way of establishing that unique, intimate connection that you share just within your family unit.* Roy isn’t convinced.
Do you have nicknames for your children? Do they love them or hate them?
*Brian, please note the use of an Oxford comma, just for you.
