"My night name is Lola."
She had no idea why the words night name set us off giggling and singing "...she was a show-girl..." and whatnot.
I love when she mispronounces words, it's adorable and I feel like she has 2 whoooole years yet until kindergarten, so that's plenty of time unlearn all the wrong words and swearing, right?
Given my recent post about strippers, we started giving everyone "night names" including all of her toys, because The Force is strong with our parenting.
Some were easy, Spongebob NoPants (and of course I found a picture for this on the internet.)
Hot damn, I love the internet.
Naked Spongebob? HERE YOU GO.
Her purple octopus? No-brainer if you're a James Bond fan.
Here are some others we came up with:
For her Rubber Ducky, my husband said in a gale of giggles that her nightname is Feathers Down and asked "See what I did there?" Indeed.
Mr. Elephant has an impressive trunk, so we dubbed him Max JunkTrunk.
|Max JunkTrunk, always happy to see you|
If we had a girl elephant, we might have gone with Ivana TrunkaLot.
This elephant? is clearly a boy elephant.
Alligator is known only as Mr. Mouth after dark.
Yellow Fish is a little boring, Fins McGILLicuddy seems appropriate.
The Red Fish however has some flare, she looks more like a Spicy Tuna Roll. So spice!
We are long time Simpsons fans, so we were looking around for an animal to call Amanda Hugnkiss, ah, the zebra.
Turtle (Mr. Turtle is my father) goes by Slippery Shelly in the witching hour.
You can call her hippo Jass, Hugh Jass, even if you call collect.
Her boy pony is "Charlie" according to Lola, but at eventide he transforms into Shiny Hindquarters.
Big Mack Daddy was campaigning to call her girl pony Sweet Buttercups, but that name will never catch on with the other toys. When we first got her, she was called Ginner, that's how Lola said "Ginger" which is an awesome nightname! (Stop. Tangent Time. Incidentally Ginger is the nightname I assigned to my husband's last car because she was gold, sparkly and shapey.)
However, Lola played with this poor little pony's mane until she turned her into Nicky Manaj, and like all ComfyTown nicknames, that name stuck.
|Her destiny is set with this hair|
|See what I mean?|
Mr. Bear transforms into the clothing-optional dancer known as Smoky the Fur. So hot only HE can prevent forest fires....but will he?! Find out, 2 shows a night after dusk.
Her singing Dog Scout uses the mouth-ful moniker Dirty Dawg Done Dirt Cheap by streetlight, and he also solves crimes.
It was at this point we realized we should probably stop playing this game before it starts getting really Cinemax, and find out where the kids had wandered off to.
Daddy's night name is Big Daddy, Moon and Stars (because Game of Thrones) and since my actual name is Joy, well that just takes care of itself.
What might YOUR night name be?
