Spoons and Siblings

First Son's name is a little bit difficult to say. First Daughter can say her name and Second Daughter's name very clearly but if she has even attempted First Son's name, it's been so far off we haven't discerned it. Today, though, she called him "my bruda" and has repeated it many times. So it seems First Son will be Brother until she gets that name right.


  1. Just a word of warning!!! be careful with this. Jay has a friend that we still call Brother (he's 30). We've all only known him as Brother. His wife refuses to call him that and insists on his being called by his first name. So, now, basically we don't know how to address anything to them. I feel like writing Dear Mr. and Mrs. Whatever Your Name Is.

  2. I'll keep that in mind, Kristin. Maybe Kansas Dad and I will have to be sure to call him by name, rather than Brother. Especially with two sisters and no other boys, it could definitely catch on and stick.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
