with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
My husband and I have been calling each other “Honey” (or “Hon”) since pretty much the start of our relationship. I don’t know why we picked that nickname, as opposed to another one such as “Love” or “Babe.” It somehow got started and we’ve been rolling with it ever since.
Well, I don’t always call him Honey. If he’s out in the yard or workshopshop and I need to call him, it sounds something like this:
“Honey? Hon? Honey! Hon! MATTHEW!!!” I’m a keeper, that’s for sure.
When it comes to him calling me Honey, he never calls me anything but that. The only time I ever hear him say my given name is when he’s referring about me to someone else. I honestly can’t remember the last time he called me “Angella” to get my attention.
The humorous side of this is that with all three of our kids, they thought that my given name was “Honey” until they were close to the age of three. I’d ask them what Daddy’s name was and they’d answer, “Matthew.” I’d ask them what my name was and they’d answer, “Honey.” So, so cute.
How about you? Do you have nicknames for each other?
