Spud, Yoda and Princess Sausage

Yes, these are my grandkids nicknames. For the few that have read my post on other sites, the details are the same. I just trying to write more better. (My wife hates what I just said. emoticon :smile:

Spud is my first grandson. One day couple months after he was born. My daughter was holding him up and saying “Look at my little peanut.” I reply back. “ Thats no peanut, it is a huge potato. A giant spud.” So after that everyone started calling him Spud.

Yoda is my third grandson. And my daughter want me to give him a nickname, too. Well the first they handed him to me in the hospital, he was wrap up it in a blanket and with his wrinkle face I said, “ Oh, no. My grandson is Yoda.” And it stuck.

Princess Sausage is my first granddaughter. She actually got her nickname from my daughter. It seems my daughter was again holding up her child shouting, “ Look at this chubby little sausage.” Her husband heard her and exclaim. “How could you call this beautiful child a sausage? She is prettiest girl every. She is a Princess compare to all other girls. My daughter said “You are right. From now on, we will call her, Princess Sausage!”

All three came from my oldest daughter. Maybe I will tell you about the rest. (The picture has Yoda, me and Princess Sausage in the front, and in the back are Turtle and Yoda.)

It was Yoda that brought me to your post. You can say that the Force is strong in that grandson of yours.

Oh I can't wait to tell him. He will get a real kick out of it.

I've wondered about the nicknames, whether they were names you'd privately given the recipients or whether they knew who was who.

That's so funny! At first, I thought these were your pets' names! They had nicknames in my father's family, too, like Zoobie, Tink, Nook, and Gals.

Trust me. they know who they are. Usually other in the family will use them. I always do. (Princess Sausage's dad won't call her Princess Sausage.)

I know the feeling. I have 12 now. (Oddly enough that how many my grandparents had.)

Your grandkids are beautiful. My dad had nicknames for his grandkids also. That's one of the many things that we'll miss about him.
