Why My Son Is Called The Chooch
Our Charlie, The Chooch, celebrated birthday number 3 this weekend.
Yes, The Chooch. Charlie got that nickname early on in his infancy because he was a BEEFY baby. The kind of kid with 3 wrist rolls, and leg rolls, and just well-fedness all over. My wife was proud of those wrinkles, she worked hard to get them on him.
At first he was Charlie Choo Choo, Choochie Choo, and then, due to his solid size, he just became The Chooch.
But a funny thing happened in the fall when my family became very public over an article I wrote about how my older son was my favorite of the two: people started calling me out over his nickname.
