Mama Bean. That would be me, stay-at-home mama extraordinaire. I grew attached to this nickname when my husband's friend once referred to me as "The Magical Vagical Mama Bean." Dude. More often than not referred to as "that guy I married," Dude is an adorable and loving man who has been my best friend since 2002. Now I get to live with him and have a family with him. Could I be any luckier? Bumblebee. One of many nicknames for my toddler daughter, born 12/10/07. I also commonly refer to her online as Littles or Papaya. At the tender age of one, she is already an aspiring politician. She loves to run up to strangers at restaurants or the mall, shake their hands, kiss their babies, display a dazzling smile, etc. I'm waiting for the day she adds "Vote for me" to this interaction. The Cats. This family is not made of humans alone. Oh no, there are two lovely felines in the mix. Lily is 6 years old and terrified of all humans, regardless of shape, size, or disposition. Most of our friends don't believe she exists, as they have not gotten to lay eyes on her in the 4+ years the cats have lived with us. Leo is 7 years old and most definitely a diva. He loves everyone and could be metro if he could fix his drooling problem.
