I'm a Pot Head
So, we have this habit in our family of using "random noun/adjective-head" as a nickname. For example: pumpkin-head, silly-head, goober-head, spaghetti-head. Emily has picked up this habit and will occasionally call me or Christoph some kind of "head". Her favorite is "pot-head." I'm having a hard time figuring out how to tell her that isn't a good nickname. I figure we're going to talk about drugs someday, but four still seems a little young. It also makes me laugh when she says it. Here we are cooking together in the kitchen and she affectionately asks, "Can I stir that, pot-head?" I just can't bring myself to stop her. At the same time, I can just see the reactions if she ever calls one of us that in public. What a nut.
