From B to G: a motherbumper PSA

Bumper has outgrown Bumper.

She is far to graceful, refined, and carefree to have a Tonka truck worthy name.

Each time I type it, it makes me wince. So now she will be referred by her current nickname.

From this day forward, Bumper will now be referred to as Gigi.

Thank Heaven for Little Girls.

First one to call her Gigli gets flaming poo in their comment/email box.

It's perfect - I have always thought Gigli was a fine name!

Heh.

Backpacking Dad said...

I'm going to call her "googli".

Jezer said...

I LUHVE it. It fits.

kittenpie said...

Hmmm. Really? I still think she has some Bumper in her, a little rebel streak. But then, she's gorgeous enough to wear Gigi...

kgirl said...

right on, gigi.

Gigi goes well with CWB, which is Oliver's acronym for CERTIFIED WRECKING BALL.

Chag said...

So are you now MotherGigi?

motherbumper said...

naaaa - I like the way it sounds like motherf**ker too much to give up

for a different kind of girl said...

I just wish there was a way to pronounce those little astericks in motherf**ker.

SciFi Dad said...

Giggly?

Damn, Chag beat me to my comment.

It fits, dahling. I am a huge fan of that film.

Mayberry said...

It's adorable!

Face it, doll, that girl would be gorgeous if you called her 'Fizzrucker Two-tone'

but Gigi? Is PERFECT for her.

Gigi is great. It'll only take my brain three months to click over.

I freaking LOVE that movie. I'm not even kidding when I say I suggested that name for our new wee one at one time or another during her gestation.

Yeah, I was totally shot down. Eh. It fits your girl better.

mothergoosemouse said...

Love it. But I'm glad you're not changing your name. Don't go messing with the motherbumper brand.

Kyla said...

End of an era. Sigh.

But you can't turn into MotherGigi, because that would be kind of weird.

Redneck Mommy said...

I love Gigi.

I always wonder if I'm doing a disservice to my kids by calling them Fric and Frac.

Then my brain explodes and I stop worrying about it.

So Fric and Frac it is. Which is better than what they're father lovingly calls them:

TweedleDee and TweedleDum.

Or my personal favorite, One and Two.

My hubs. He's such a good daddy.

Heh.

So, Helga wasn't in the running?

We're pondering a name change 'round these parts also.

Ali said...
