The names we tag her with

Moppet's mom tagged me to list a few names we called the peapod.

To begin with, when she was born, I used to call her the 'aarti pandaram' which loosely translates to the 'greedy bag'. I used to get stern looks from mom but when trying to feed peapod she would just greedily grab and bite before she gets hooked on. Thoes initial few seconds were pure pain & agony. The name just served her right then.
Most times she is 'chakare', 'panchare', 'chakadu kutta', chakare pandare', Kuttai, muttai,kuttu all losely translates to 'sweetiepie'. MIL calls her 'appu' and 'appachikutta' from the day she was born with sole copyrights.
'Udukakundus' (bare butts) when running behind her with her clothes.
In the last few days the nicks have changed to 'varkali penne', 'chatambi penne', 'Kusurdi penne' (all translates to naughty girl)all sung in the same way as 'Kandari penne' from some malu movie.

And now I tag Boo, JLT & dear silin(I know she isn't here yet but I am sure you enough of these already)
