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.)
