  • So far other people have called him Ky and Zeek. I don't like either one of them. Ky? Umm NO. Zeek? I knew a dog named Zeek once.

  • Hmmm . . . I must agree, I wouldn't want anyone calling my child a pet name for excrement, and I hate when people call their kids stinky.

  • My mom has decided she is going to call him "Bubby" for some reason. Who freaking knows why, but I hate it. HATE it. Despise it. It makes me sick when I hear her call him that.

  • My aunt and uncle call my daughter Squeak. I dont mind it. I actually think its cute. I call her pumpkin and little miss. She does know her name though.

  • I think normal nick names are okay- ones that go along with the name. but doo doo? seriously. No one should be called that except the stuff that comes out of his diapers! Gee some people are weird. Tell her it sounds like she's calling him poop, and that you don't approve of it. If she argues just start calling her crap-crap.

  • Is this the only issue you have with your MIL or is it just the tip of the iceberg?

    You spend more time with him and he will take his cues from you. You can either teach him that Grandma has a silly name for him that shows she loves him very much or you can teach him that Grandma is a nutjob.

    It's up to you.
