Dad Post 2 - Conundrums
Sports Conundrum: Now that I have a young impressionable life under my influence what team should she root for in the Superbowl? The Packers are a respectable franchise with a dedicated and hardworking fan base. The Steelers are much the same. I have good friends in both cities. Such a tough decision. But what fun is the Superbowl without picking a team to root for?
Nickname Conundrum: I need a good dad nickname. You know, the name that only the dad uses. Ady or Adylyn will be what everyone else calls her, but I want something different and original. I already periodically call Emily, E-dizzle, so A-dizzle is no good. I also figure it shouldn't be something that implies girth, promiscuity, or ugliness (Adasaurous Rex, A-girl, Little Ady Alligator). Emily has emphatically vetoed everything I have suggested to date. Anyone have any ideas? I will post any suggestions I receive in a poll starting after the Superbowl (vote in the What Should Ady Wear to the Superbowl Party? poll right now!).
Fun Fact: In an average day, a four year old child will ask 437 questions (and when that day comes I plan to make up a legitimate sounding answer for every one of them)
