short end of the stick

Speaking of big…

The Dada reminded me of the unfortunate distribution of nicknames Alice doled out when she was about 21 months old. Someone got to be heroic:

  • the super hero who helps distressed tots
  • faster than a speeding toddler
  • able to leap small block towers in a single bound
  • Dada Man!

Someone got to be… Big Mama.

And those names stuck for a very long time. As in more than a year. There is nothing like being called “Big Mama” by your sweet, well-meaning munchkin over and over and over (and over). Who do you think drew the short end of that stick?
