Parker, you requested a nick name today.
You said, "Daddy calls you Babe, You call Daddy Honey, we call Kent Kenters, but what about me? I want a nick name too."
I thought about all different kinds of combinations of your name and none seemed to fit. Finally a light came on.
"I know! Since you are so good at baseball we'll call you "Slugger". It's what they call someone who is a really good hitter".
"Yes! I love it!!!"
When your dad got home, you were so excited to share your new name.
"Daddy. My new name is Slegger."
Slegger. Slugger. Either way, you're thrilled to have a nick name now. I passed it along to the family so they know how to address you from this point on.
PS...Later on in the evening, Kent asked for a new nickname. We will now be referring to him as "Boxer".
