ABMama We have gone through many a nickname for DS.

I call him; bud, or buddy, or "my love"

DH calls him; mister mister, the boy, boy, goober, gooblegurt, keen-a-roo, etc.

There are many more but they change constantly.

mama2toby DS has been called more names than you can shake a big stick at, but here are some favorites:

Uncle Fuster
Zoney McZone Zone (when staring blankly on the long ride to town)
Sir Farts-a-lot
Mr. Nakey
"the boy" (always a classic)

Benjamin Rogers We tried "little man".

You would have thought we had called him "little bastard". Oh, he was mad!

His left hand on his hip, his left arm akimbo, stomping his little left foot, anger, hurt, betrayal in his eyes. "I not little! I big! I big-man! I like daddy! Daddy is big-man! I is big-man!"

So: "big-man".

ndakkitten Heh, this is a very amusing thread. My hubby and I called our first one "goo" and "monkey", but since he's almost 4, he's kinda outgrown all his names. Mostly we stick with "little man" now.

However, our second son, started out as "Moo" (to replace Goo), which eventually migrated to "Moochoo". Then since his name was Nathan, we shortened it to Nate, which somehow became NateTate, and then became "Tator", which we still use to this day. It fits him too well, as potatoes are his favorite food (mashed, fried, he doesn't care). He will answer just as readily to either Nathan or Tator, and even his older brother calls him Tator. Other nicknames have been snugglebug (because he LOVES to cuddle and is very touchy feely), Tator-trot and Trotsky (when he started walking) and psychobaby (when he is really hyper).

I can't wait till the new baby is born to see what in the world we come up with next!!!

Apryl Srissa Boy do I feel more normal right now

My oldest is almost 11, so doesn't like nicknames, but still lets us call him monkey, Aariana, Ariel (can you tell dh has an odd sense of humor?).his lil brother calls him AarynMIchael (stressing the uppercase, and all squished together), for the longest time wouldn't just call him Aaryn.

My nearly 3 year old still has a ton, bear, ConnorBear, booger, munchkin, piggy,dh calls him taco (no idea why ), nut butt, Connie, crazy butt, and a few others I can't remember.

Hunter is hunny,hunty, bug, hunnybug, buggy, nakey bug, booger butt, piglet, kissy bug, munckin, noodle, and, ooo, I'm forgeting the new dh was calling him all week, it was a really odd one lol

It started as snickerdoodlepie, but converted to schnickerdoodlepie and eventually shortened to "schnick", this summer I added puddin' pie which quickly shortened to pud and then I combined them to be "schmud". this week she has a stuffy nose and keeps calling me Bob so I have been calling her Bill, but mostly it is just "schnick".

NewCrunchyDaddy DS "answers" to the following:

Little Monkey Man
Little Man
Little Guy

and, thanks to Tina Fey, my favorite...

Drunk Midget

Ms. Fey was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno a couple of weeks ago and when he asked about her 1yo daughter, she said that it was like having a drunk midget in the house: they stagger around, knocking things off the shelves, breaking things, yelling, crying, etc., etc. :
