Lately I’ve become concerned about our baby’s identity. More accurately, I’m concerned he’s going to have an identity crisis. I think I’ve called him by his name maybe four or five times in his whole life. What is wrong with me? Today I said WAYLON right in front of his face and I might as well have said BADGER because it elicited no response. In fact, he turned the other way like “Who’s this Waylon you speak of? He doesn’t live here.”
I don’t know how it started, but Baby Daddy and I have gotten into the habit of calling him anything but his name. Any and all of these are used on a regular basis. Don’t judge.

Did your parents call you something other than your given name? Are you normal/sane/a functioning adult? Do you call your kids weird things?
Make me feel better.
