Magical Moment 631, "Sprout"


Every child needs a "pet" name growing up. Mine was Squeak. My husband's was Skeeter. The thing about these kinds of nick names, is that you can't rush or force them. They just have to come easily, and then they'll stick. 

Occasionally, my creative and sensitive husband (who has posted on this blog several times), will contribute to my grandmother's writer's group. She sent him a list of their weekly topics, and every now and then, if he has something to write, he will. A few weeks ago, the topic was simply, "sprout," and my husband sent the group this sweet haiku:



Sprout- how fast you grew
First snow, first thaw, each brand new
Son, look; I'll show you
-Eddie Grimes




Did you ever have or give a pet name??

I love that picture of the baby, another "sprout" along with the sweet poem and drawing. Thanks for sharing this magical moment with me. :-)

Your little "sprout" is just adorable. I was "fuzzy" or "buttons" occasionally when I was little. Haven't thought about that for years.

awwww! i love 'sprout!'

when i was little, we rented a big old farmhouse. for some reason, the dairy farmer/landlord called me 'twiggy'. i wasn't tall or thin, just the youngest of 8.

When our son was small we called him Mogie for reasons I can no longer remember. I sometimes resort to calling him by this nickname although I doubt my 33 year old son appreciates it.

Very creative of your husband! 'Sprout' looks to be living up to his new moniker. Enjoy these years. No matter how many times you're told, it's true - they do grow up so fast!
