Names

When our daughters were 1 and 3, our youngest called the older one, Who-Who instead of Crystal. The oldest one called the younger one Ra-rach instead of Rachael. We could understand Ra-rach, so much that it almost became a nickname, before we nipped it in the bud. But, we could not figure out Who-Who.
Years later, when they were teenagers and we lived in a two-story house, I stood on the first floor and called up to Crystal, “Crystal, Woohoo” (or however you spell that call we make) and then stopped in pause. Well, I guess that is where Who-Who had come from!

SO cute! I use the "Woohoo" call all the time when I'm calling my grandkids! ha They think it's funny.

Kids are funny. When our oldest daughter started talking, she insisted on calling my husband "Bob" instead of Daddy. She did this for the longest time. We never did find out why, but thankfully, she figured it out.
