These books are really fun to read, because I get to do my best Penelope-Cruz-speaking-English (Mama Junebug's voice) and then I switch to Antonio-Banderas-speaking-English (all the other characters). Even though they're from Spain, not Mexico. And we all get a kick out of Mama Junebug's nicknames for Skippyjon: Mr. Fuzzypants, Sugar Beet, Mr. Doodlepaws.
It's very endearing.
I call my my kids: Honey Bear, Sugar, Darling, Lovebug, Cookie, Peanut, Peanut Butter, and Mister. And they're each the first letter of their first name (because two syllables are just too much sometimes, I guess!).
Personally, I don't really have a nickname. Do you? And what do you call your kids besides their given names?
