In reply to Terms of endearment from T?, posted by moonshadow on August 1, 2009, at 9:13:04

Mine does... and I love it. It used to be Sweetpea, more when I was really having a hard time. Not it is more likely sweetie. And, I have a diminutive of my first name that was my "kid name" growing up, she sometimes calls me that after I told her about it and gave her permission.

I think it's totally natural to enjoy feeling cared for and nurtured and looked out for... and those names evoke that feeling. It's a sort of intimacy...

> Lately, my old T has been calling me things like "dear" or "sweetie", very mom-like. Things I call my kids. I hate to say I like it, but I do.

> Do other t's do that? I know my new, stiff, crotchety T would never cross that boundary, nor would I want her to.
