  • We don't either. I hate it. I know it works for some people, but it makes my skin crawl.

  • We don't. I call him Daddy around the kids. Once my daughter (copying me I guess) called him "PHILLLIIIPPP!!!" lol

  • me and my husband both call each other baby. If we use our real names it means something is wrong.

  • I hear you LitningBug I know I am in deep trouble when he uses my real name.
    Yes we do. Our nickname for each other is precious. It all started with a late night watching of Lord of the Rings. Our son is gonna grow up thinking that our names are precious. lol But other then that we don't use them much.

  • We do use "pet names" sometimes. When we're having a serious conversation we don't.

  • We use hun for each other all the time. But that's about it. I almost never call him by anything else unless I'm asking for him on the phone. But, every once in a while he calls me by my name.

  • We do sometimes. Mostly honey but we've had others in the past. I'll even call him honey when I'm mad at him because it just comes out. Our son even calls us honey because he's heard it so much.

  • wow, I never really thought about it...but now that I have..we call each other babe, ALL THE TIME. I think that I only call him by his name when I'm being serious about something...honestly I can't remember the last time he said my name...LOL
