You just never know what Nicknames your kids will get… what other kids will call them. I was always Alison. Only my dad and brothers call me Ali. I like it that way. Joe was never Joey. I knew I wanted Dallon’s to be Dally when we picked that name. After all, it is Matt Dillon’s name in The Outsiders… my favorite movie through my teenage years. And so Dallon is Dally. Tucker always hated when I called him Tuck… well at least when he was mad. I am sure I call him Tuck sometimes and he never says a thing… but if he is mad, watch out.
Tucker got an invitation to a friend’s birthday party and it was addressed to Taco. I knew one kid called Tucker, Taco because he calls Dallon, "taco jr.". So I asked Tucker what the deal was and he said so matter of factly…"taco is what everyone calls me". I think that is so cute! I would have never predicted Taco out of Tucker and he really seems to like it. It just struck me funny that he has a nickname… and I had nothing to do with it:P I think it’s great that his friends have given him a nickname.
