Demon Baby has a perfectly lovely name. No, it's not "Demon Baby." It's Jack. I'm not sure why I chose that name other than it is simple and sweet and I liked it.

He informed me tonight that his name is "BORING!"

"Well . . . it's a little late to do anything about that."

"No, it's not. I have a new name."

"What's that?"

"From now on, I will only answer to AQ2."

"Excuse me?"


"What the hell kind of name is that?"

"It's my new name. AQ2. You can be MomQ2."

I feel like I must have actually given birth four years ago to a ROBOT.


I swear to you, this child is an alien.

Maybe he got the idea from watching Star Wars. I bought Lego Star Wars for the Wii, and now my son is obsessed. He wants the toys, clothes, etc. Just like his dad.

He hasn't seen Star Wars . . . so I don't know. he likes Ben Ten Alien Force (favorite show)--maybe there is some sort of name like that on there. Though most of them have names like SWAMP FIRE. Occasionally he acts like swamp fire. Which is not a good thing.

A... is that A for Alpha? Part of his plan to rule the universe? LOL! When I was little, I only knew met one person who had my name. I was so jealous! I like being different. :-)

I think Demon Baby is the coolest.

Aww, Jack is on my short list for boys' names. Unfortunately I can't convince my hubby. (not pregnant, I just like to plan ahead...)

AQ2 is hilarious!

ooh, I think DB would like my WV: ingibut

I think AQ2 is growing on me. It's certainly unusual.

Did you ever see Martian Child? That's what I feel like I have,

Erica Orloff said...

LOL on ingibut. Yes, he would. Anything with "butt" in it is hilarious to AQ2.

Demon Baby...I mean, AQ2 is too funny! I actually have a friend who changed his name from his given name to Jack when he was probably about DB's age. His mom called his name and told him to come to dinner. He told her that wasn't his name. His name was Jack. She said "OK, Jack, it's time for dinner". He's been Jack ever since!

I sort of like AQ2. It's beyond funny. He's so creative, it's amazing! I hope his teachers have a blast with him.

Erica Orloff said...

THAT story is hilarious! Renaming himself. Love it.

Erica Orloff said...

We've now taken to calling him "Q" for short, especially since today he told us his name is AQ3. I won't be able to keep all the models of AQ straight. So . . . Q it is.

"Q", short for cutie?
Jack. Hmm, after some of the stories I've read about him, I was almost sure his real name was Damien. :0)

I know. I think I dropped the ball when I named him.
