YABU, I call DS sausage. I haven't got a clue why though. I just started calling him sausage and couldn't stop. Sometimes he is Sausage Monkey.
He also goes by the names Mr Toots (he farts a lot) and Mr Fussypants. I think I may have also called him Commodore Cuddles once or twice.

I was Tina Ticklebum when I was younger. My brother was Tom Ticklebum.
Neither of us are called Tom or Tina.

This thread is lovely. Sorry, OP YABU, 'Sausage' is a lovely name, whatever age you are. My dad called me 'Miss Mouse' or 'Mouslet'and since my marriage I've been 'Mrs Mouse.' Irony is intended; I was a very noisy child! I'm still quite loud at 37.

I call my son Flumpet... smile

Nooo, get brother "I'm Tootles" T shirt, then expose child wearing "I'm Tootles" T shirt, then you and DP take off jumpers to expose "I'm Tootles" T shirts in an "I'm Spartacus" moment ! grin

Here in the U.S., calling someone "sausage" would get you punched in the face. It's the same as calling someone a fat cow. Well, here in California it is.

Swedington, I'm SO glad I read the other responses before I advised you to tell your dad to go piss up a rope! grin He's saying it with love!

"Tootles 2 - this time it's personal!"

I call my dd sausage! It's cute.

I dare say she'll hate it if I still call her sausage at 45 though!

Do it!

You could get a matching babygro for your DC with "Tootles, the imposter" or "Tootles Junior"

LOVING this tootles action grin

Bro has actually asked for a t-shirt for xmas this year - I am sorely tempted to buy the one mmelindt has so kindly designed...

I will still have a Pufto and a Womfrey when they're 45 grin.

However, I did have to make a New Year's resolution one year to stop calling dd2 "Bottoms The Baby". She was 5 and didn't like it any more.

My dad used to call me Fanny-Anne.

My name is not Frances or any variant thereof. Miss him like crazy- will be dead 20 years on the 30th.

MamaLazarou Thu 26-Nov-09 19:42:04

I wish I had a dad to call me sausage. sad

I call my DS Sausage.... in fact he is even known in the local Pret as firstname Sausage...

I wish my dear dad was still alive to call me anything he darned well liked envy. I miss him terribly.

MmeLindt Thu 26-Nov-09 16:42:19

My Dad had lots of nicknames for me, Tilly was one, and Toots.

Still sometimes calls me that, it is sweet.
