Mr. Dobolina, Mr. Bob Dobolina… or Hayden?

A few weeks ago, Ryan and I became concerned that Hayden doesn’t know his name. It could be that he doesn’t respond because he’s far more interested in whatever he’s playing with. Or it could be that we often call him by pet and nicknames.

The giant list of things we call Hayden other than his name (I came up with 51. Obviously some of them are circumstantial. (Note a young Hayden’s blank stare.)

  1. I’m a little concerned about “pee” and “poo”. Jordan, I’m deeming this emotional maltreatment and calling it into DCFS..

    just kidding but really? Pee and poo are things that go in the toliet.

    You forgot “Haydie boy”

  2. Pee is short for peeka. Poo is short for pooka.

    You’re thinking of peepee and poop. 😉

    Isn’t that one just yours?

  3. Oh, I didn’t know I was the only one. (I am the only one, I am the only one, start believing me now…)

    I’m just sayin, those are pretty stinky names
