Though I use our full names on my blog, I generally don’t use other people’s names without their permission unless it’s for a prayer request. A few friends or family members’ blog names are basically their nicknames, but they’re also pretty common names. It may help to have a list of Recurring Characters to help you out….
Brian – my sweet husband
B3 – Our oldest son. 5 years old and full of energy, exploring the world!
Turtle – our infant foster son. Go ahead and squeeze the cheeks. He’ll let you.
Mama – pretty self-explanatory. Her cohort is Daddy. Who could have guessed? Brian’s parents are usually referred to as “Brian’s Parents”. Rocket science, ya’ll.
Little Bro – my younger brother
Sweet Lizzy – my brother’s wife, my sister-in-law, and my partner in this crazy baby-raising.
The Amazing JBF – Brian’s oldest younger sister, and my sister-in-law. She’s my sounding board, my reassurance, my sister in every possible way but one.
UncleCop- The Amazing JBF’s husband, and our brother-in-law
Monkey Girl – their daughter and our first niece. Spunky, funny, and smart.
Nurse Baileys – Brian’s youngest younger sister, and my sister-in-law, and the only medical personnel I really need. I love her heart and the work she does with it.
The Bum and The Ya-Ya Princess – my best friends. They have the other 2/3 of my brain.
The Godson – The Bum’s son. He’s my Godson — could you tell?
Cousin Mike – The Bum’s husband , who is also Brian’s cousin. Sometimes called Mack.
Sweet Sister Sarah – my oldest friend, who is like the sister I always wanted
VA – dear friend from high school that I usually get up to no good with
