Last night I was on my way home with Buggy and made a pit stop to pick up our dinner. There were a few people in front of us so we had to wait a few minutes. This lady next to me was quite friendly and chatty. She kept trying to talk to Buggy telling her how cute she was but Buggy wouldn’t acknowledge her at all.
I told her the lady that Buggy is really shy at times and doesn’t talk to strangers. The chatty lady started talking about her kids when they were younger and how she scared the crap out of them with all the “don’t talk to stranger’s” deal and all. She continued to try and talk to Buggy but no luck. Finally she asked me what her name was. I kinda just stared at her and froze. Finally I said Amelia, her name is Amelia (not her real name ).
I don’t like strangers knowing her real name. I never use Buggy’s real name in public and always have a fake name when people ask me what her name is and since Buggy is shy with strangers she wouldn’t respond if you used her real name anyway. I usually have a quick response but this lady threw me off.
Some of you guys don’t use your kids name on your blog but what about when you’re out in public, do you use a nickname or use their real names?
