True Story Tuesday

Head on over to Once Upon A Miracle, grab their button from the sidebar, link up, and post your own True Story Tuesday. It's fun times around here y'all!




I'd like to tell y'all where my name, Aunt Crazy, came from. When my nephew, K, who is now 9-1/2 years old, was about 3 or 4, he couldn't pronounce my real name and when he called out to me across the deer lease, it came out sounding just like CRAZY. Uncle Bubba could NOT let that go y'all. He declared to everyone who would listen that small children are incapable of lying and know the true personalities of people and named me Aunt Crazy for all the world to know. My nephew quickly learned how to pronounce my real name and NEVER EVER called me Aunt Crazy, BUT, my grown nieces and nephews started calling me that and still call me that and are now teaching their children to call me Aunt Crazy. It's funny and we joke about it and when I call them, their cell phones ring that Buckcherry song, Crazy Bitch...HAHAHAHA!!!

I don't know what's worse, the fact that I answer to Aunt Crazy or that I constantly refer to myself as Aunt Crazy!!!

  2. I too wondered where that name came from. Very funny how nicknames come to be. When Jakob was little he used to call Chris by his first name but it came out sounding like Piss. We laughed every single time!

  3. Love it! I have three nephews who call me 'Aunt Doofus'. They're 24, 21 and 19 now but have called me that since they were probably 9, 6 & 4. They started doing it because they thought it was silly now it's more like a term of endearment. I don't know what I'd do if one of them called me by my real name.

  5. I love nicknames given by kids! And at least you're the fun aunt, right? :)

    My nickname unfortunately, is "She-She"... which means TO URINATE in japanese and Hawaiian.

    Thanks sweet little niece.

  6. That is cute! My brother was Uncle T.T. for a little while because my son could not say Uncle Stevie. One day on the phone he said, "Love you T.T.!"

  8. Congrats on the award! I found you via QQAL, who I found via CTM. It's been a convoluted ride, but I'm glad I found your blog!

    My sister's nickname from my children is "Aunt Ninny", which offended the hell out of her husband until we explained that the kids couldn't pronounce Nelle, so it came out Ninny. She's been Ninny ever since.
