In preparation for our Spring Break trip we reminded our children of fun times they have previously had with their grandparents -- all four sets of them. Our littlest had a perfect recollection of his grandpa calling him Little Squirt.
When he arrived and was greeted with, "How's little squirt?" he was delighted, if shy. Once his timidness wore off he met every Little Squirt with, "Big Squirt!" I managed to catch his pride in this photo -- though it's a bit blurry and under lit.
Life lesson No. 46,793: Having a nick name that suits you and you appreciate is almost as meaningful as giving someone else a fitting nick name. What's yours?
