I gotta give DH a better name!

DH trying to look serious in Thailand 2001. And his hair is mussed! Shocking!

Taking a page from Barefoot Gardener, I have decided that DH needs a better name on this blog.

Many people have questioned the DH moniker, either because they don't understand that usually it stands for Dear Husband, or because they think he needs a more descriptive name.

DH himself has suggested a few things, and while they are amusing and occasionally Latin in origin, cannot be used in polite company (that's you guys!)

Since my daughters are called Almost Grown and Not Quite Grown, I was thinking of calling husband Never Grown Up. I don't think he likes the implication, but hey, he is a boy after all, so it's appropriate! Over Grown is another thought, but much more suggestive of my potato shape than his svelte physique.

I could use his nickname from his corporate days, Mr. Warmth, for his steely glare at irritating people. But he is so much more mellow since I had some of his body parts removed, that doesn't seem to fit anymore either.

So here's where you come in. Especially those of you who have had the pleasure of his company for a while, I'm sure you could suggest something descriptive and appropriate. Just make sure that the porn police won't come after me!

Big Papa? That's in keeping with his Latin name and DH translation!

Tough one, I couldn't even figure out a name for mine! just copped out with the Mr. Barefoot stuff.

You could call him The Grown Up.
