Boopie: A lesson in anatomy

Boo - pie [boo - pee]
Term of endearment, nickname, what Greg calls me; see also Boops

We are piling into the car one night when Zack pauses, and a strange look comes over his face. He is perplexed.

Greg and I stop and ask him what's wrong.

He pinches up his face and asks, "Why does Daddy always call you a booby? Or a boob?"

Poor guy has been thinking that his Dad calls his Mom a ta-ta twenty times a day. No wonder he is anxious. He has seen the future and it includes a lot of therapy.

(It's a wonder we have real names at all.)

Hee hee. Especially funny to me since Boopers, Sboopers, and Sboopy are common nicknames around my place--can be anyone from me to the doggie, but I'm not offended since she's pretty darn cute too ;)

Hey, not really commenting on today's blog, but just wanted to tell you how much I LOVE your new Header!

That is funny. We have a little notebook that we write these sort of statements. We read them at the dinner table every so often and have a great laugh.
