Do you have a nickname?

Growing it seems everyone in my family had nicknames compliments of my grandaddy. What was my nickname from him? ~Birdie~ He said when I was little I puckered my lips out like a little bird waiting for food. The strange nicknames he gave some others family members "Jack, Pee Wee, and one of my favorite Ham Bone." He was Jolly and Happy, everyone loved him.

Well he was not the only person who gave me a nickname. My uncle calls me Baby Deer, my aunt calls me Jenny, and my mom calls me Bunny. I was just wondering about if any of y'all have any funny, cool, or embarrassing nicknames to share?

What you are or will be doing in 2010 to create change?

Jolly Mom

What you are or will be doing in 2010 to create change? Basically all change starts with our children,and what we teach them. As part of the Mom Blogging Community we are empowering women and sharing mother's wisdom and tips. Even better we are a team, we are strong, and we can be heard. Through all walks of life, no matter age, or skin color we share the blogger sphere. Our messages are heard from helping spread word or raising money via buttons & posts for other bloggers or their family, and even to offer a kind word can change an individuals state of mind. Blogger "MOMS have the power and create change.

I hope in 2010 I serve as an positive role model for my sons and instill in them character and love for life and all things around them. Maybe they will create change in the future in ways unimaginable. Speaking of unimaginable, I would have thought a year ago I could have been blogging and helping others, but here I am. I hope to share and create change in the blog space with many great and strong women/moms in awareness and community support.

I believe:

Learned & When Child is Mistreated

So, when my house was hit with the Virus I learned some things.

1. Moms handle very disgusting things, conclusion without details "Moms are Super Heroes"

2. When at the doctors office remain calm when a child shoves your child down. "I was on Fire"

3. Grandparents are so wonderful for a sick daughter and grand kids. " Yeah they caught it too."

4. Take plenty of activities for your child to do while you wait at the doctors office.

5. I wish they would take those nasty germ infested activity tables out of the doctors office. "If a child was not sick when they went in they will be after touching that. Dirty Thing"

6. They only one spared from the virus 7 month old son. "That's a blessing"

7. My son does not like plain Gatorade, but frozen and turn into a Popsicle or smashed up like a shaved ice he will enjoy.

8. I hated holding my son for blood work.

So, more on the kid that shoved my son down. We just came over from having blood drawn and the kid comes in. I just got my son calm from the shot. He sees another child to play with and he is so good playing with children, he follow the boy to the "Mom Unapproved" activity table. Smiling and trying to get the other child to play. The other kid gets up from one side of the table walks around, shoves my son down who was squat at the other side of the table. My son had a bewildered look on his face, no one has ever done that or anything bad to him before.

Fire flooded my veins, I jumped up got my sons hand and said come with mama. You are not going to play with that mean younging as I walked past his mom. Who could care less, but she did get up and go into the room with her child after she saw how upset I was. I know every child eventually gets a dose of negativity and hateful attention, but for right at 3 years my son has not known that kind of treatment.

That mom was an idiot, she sit in a separate play room away from her child for one, He had snot running from his nose and the best part it was freezing cold and he had no shoes on, only socks and no jacket. Sorry Mom, in my opinion, no wonder the child was sick.

I know I'm not perfect, but I know better than that and I try to teach my son to be kind, polite, and considerate of others. I also make sure he is dressed appropriately for the weather. She her self was dress for it, that mom gets a F from me.

While I'm on the subject we had my son birthday party right after we recovered, a little girl at the party was showing my son to hit and trying to get him to hit a little boy she was hitting. My husband got them and told her grandmother, and I was proud of old hubby. We worked so hard to teach him right and in minutes the influence of other kids can stain it. Oh, I can't wait until it's time to send him to school :( I have a feeling I'm going to be one of those moms.
