So what do you call your husband/ wife?
I worked for a woman once who sat right next to my desk so I overheard most of her personal conversations.
In those days I worked so hard (I honestly have never worked as hard as I did then - I was definitely overworked and underpaid) that I couldn't even take a quick tea break to avoid all that.
Anyway, she used to say, "hello, Dad" and I'd think how nice.
But when this Dad business carried on and on, I eventually twigged that this was her husband, and not her father.
That's when I vowed never to call D, "Dad".
I call D "D" - it's funny because a lot of my friends do too, and yet no-one else does, except for his sister and our very good friends in London. And Baby (not as often now because of the babies), and D___ when he's not paying attention.
The thing I most call the babies is Pumpkin. It's quite funny when I say, "eat your peas, Pumpkin" or similar things. D laughs at me.
I call K "Baby" and C "Little Guy" other than their names, again a lot of the time when they're not listening (see the pattern???)
So what do you call your husband/ wife? And what do you call your baby(ies)?
