A rose by any other name...

As the readers of this blog know, I refer to my 7-year-old daughter as Kiddo.  I was explaining to Kiddo that I was going to the memorial service for Kate and Kathy, and here is how the conversation went:

Me: My friend Kathy used to always call you Kiddo because she read my blog and knew that was your nickname.  When I would see her at library stuff she would say, "And how is Kiddo?"  She loved that name.

Kiddo: Really?  I don't like the name Kiddo.

Me: You don't?

Kiddo: No.  But I like when you call me Bug.  Can you call me Bug on your blog?

Me: Sure.

Which is from the nickname "Bugaboo", which we've called her since birth.  It has been shortened to Bug somewhere along the way.

So Kiddo will now be referred to Bug on this blog.
