It occurs to me that sometimes I use words, names, or phrases that you might not recognize, unless you are related to me or have read every single blog posting I have ever written. In an effort to be more clear, I have created this glossary of Tenor Dad terms that I can then link to when I use one of them, without having to explain it in writing every time. I may update this post from time to time, or I may not. We’ll see how this works. So anyway, here are some quick definitions for you!
Binky – A pacifier.
Bubbas – Bottles of milk, warmed in the microwave for 30 seconds or so.
Daddy Bear – Ruby’s favorite stuffed bear. He likes to drive cars and go to bear parties.
Edward – My son, born in March of 2010. He is (you do the math) years old.
Jesse Jellyroll – Our cat who likes to scratch all of our stuff.
Mousey Lionheart – Our cat who likes to scratch all of our people.
Nini – My mother-in-law, originally called Nina, but the kids changed it to Nini.
Ruby – My daughter, born in March of 2007, so you can figure out how old she is at the time you are reading this.
Simone – My wonderful wife of many years.
Toy Grammy – What Ruby calls my mother, because of the number of toys at my mother’s house.
Uncle Big Dave – My sister’s husband
Uncle Tall Dave – My wife’s sister’s husband
