Mom and Dad [Bambi and Poppy]

Mom and Dad

We celebrated my dad’s birthday (74!) today and my mom’s birthday (it’s a secret! but she’s much younger than my dad) two weeks ago. I wish I had snapped a picture of both of them together, but this will have to do. [I love my mom’s smirk.]

[I don’t know if I’ve told the story before of how my mom got the nickname “Bambi.” Holly’s kids called her “Grammy,” but Levi couldn’t say that when he was super little. He said something like “Bammy”—which we may have then helped morph into “Bambi” because it sounded better. And she’s been Bambi ever since! Her real name is Cheri, and she blogs over at Treading on Moss.]

What a lovely picture! They both look so happy! My grandmother was supposed to be Grammy and I changed it to Dammy because I couldn't pronounce my /gr/ and it stuck! You can imagine what happened when I shortened her name in public!
