Blog nicknames

I read a lot of blogs. A lot of those blogs have nicknames for their family so they don't put their real names on the blog for every Tom, Dick, and Harry to see. There are some named after cookies, some after McDonald's menu items, some are just Mama, and get the point. So, I got to thinking, maybe I should put nicknames for my family on my blog...or maybe not. I've yet to decide. My luck I'd give everyone nicknames and then forget to call them that and use their real names as I normally do. I'm still thinking about it...

Here are some possible ideas I came up with. NUTS. We are all nuts here anyways, so why not be named nuts? I had trouble coming up with the nuts that Jilly & I should be though...For Bill I got Breadnut (yes there is such a thing, although I had never heard of it until I looked up nuts lol), because he is the family bread winner I thought it would be appropriate for him. For Kelsey, I figured Chestnut, because, well...she has a large chest! :( For Zach, I thought Beechnut would work, since the scientific name for it has the not the nicest name for what he is in it. For Bree, Peanut, because she is the littlest nut in the family.

Then, with the help of my friend, we came up with some other names...Diva for Jilly, Princess for Bree, Drama for Kelsey, Supermom for me...not sure on the others yet. Who I said, I'm still thinking

What do you think? Nicknames or no nicknames? If you think nicknames, do you have any good ideas for us? Share your thoughts please :)

I don't know, I've thought about using nicknames too. I asked my hubby if it bothered him that I used our real names on the blog, and he said no, but I still think about it. I say go for it if you want, but I think it would be easier if you used names that reminded you of your babies. Visitng from Mama M's personals!
