Mr. Bubblewrap, or Donkey from Shrek
Little Man aka Little General
What’s up with these and what do they mean?
Chief Potato: second oldest son, oldest is our adopted sib group. He also is a self-proclaiming lazy person, hence the potato=couch potato reference. Chief just fits.
Mr. Bubblewrap: third son and third in our adopted group, needs bubble wrap as he is constantly getting hurt. Donkey: a Shrek reference…just think about how much Donkey talks and how he acts in the movie…you get the picture.
Little Man/Little General: the youngest in all categories, just an affectionate name I gave him after I bought him a onesie with “Mom’s Little Man” on it. It makes it easier to refer to him instead of going through the mental list of boys in our family as well. He just acquired a new nickname that fits even better; Little General/The General as he so thinks he is the boss of all his siblings, even our adult ones.
Nana: our second daughter and right behind Chief in the birth order of our adopted ninos, it’s what The General calls her.
Ninos: a simple reference to our adopted children.
