The kids came up with there own nicknames today. I had to write them down to keep track. (I mean really, I can barely get their real names straight on a good day, and now they've got new ones...jeesh!)
I'm imagining a few of them as gangsters from the 30's or 40's, and praying these names will be forgotten by tomorrow. Although, as with any really great idea in our house, signs have been posted on every bed room door, making them as "official" as they can get. When they asked what they should call me, I made it clear that "Mom" would do just fine.
