Welcome to Miltyville

The time has come to officially introduce my little family. In keeping with the fun bloggy tradition, We will all use our official nicknames. Now, when I say official, I mean it. When I married my husband, Milty, I didn't realize the legacy I was marrying into.

You see, Milty is not our family name.


Most people are.

The nickname began with hubby's dad, who was "Uncle Milty" to all his college buds. Having a last name that sounds sort of close and sort of looking like Milton Burl, he really had no choice in the matter. But he wore it well and with honor and proudly handed the name down to his sons and daughter.

The next generation dropped the Uncle and went as simply "Milty". A very cool handle that both boys pulled off well, even when in the same room. Their beautiful sister was, you guessed it, MsMilty, and she still is!(beautiful and MsMilty that is)

But what happens when Milty marries and has children? Well, Milty becomes BigMilty and his wife becomes MamaMilty.

Now, some of you already know me as MamaMilty and in the interest of simplicity, I will be using my ultra cool nickname by marriage from here on out. So when you get a comment from MamaMilty, don't be confused, you know me, Hi, Its Me Jen!

And what about the kids, you ask?

Well, our oldest, the blonde on the left, has been LilMilty all his life and he likes it, he will carry on the family moniker with aplomb.

But what to call his younger brother and sister?

That is the question!

It doesn't seem right to name our middle guy who is so full of personality and actually taller than his big bro Lil'rMilty, now does it? MiddleMilty just isn't good on so many levels....

What should we name this little guy???

And last, but certainly not least, our little princess.....could she be anyone else besides PrincessMilty?

Running a close second would be DiapeeHeadMilty, but for longevity, we thought we ought to go with the other one, what do y'all think?

So that is our story.

Welcome to Miltyville, our little corner of the world where we know that with God, All Things are Possible.


  1. This was a fun read! How about "The Milt?" "Dude Milt?" "Milty Man?" "Miltster?"

  2. I like DudeMilty LOL. Or BrownMilty...since he seems to be the only one of your children with dark hair.

    That's all I've got for now. Will ponder further LOL

  3. Okay, I am leaning toward MiltyDude...BigMilty is lobbying for Milty1Kanobi....

    I like The Milt and MoreMilty, too! Thanks girls, keep those ideas coming!

  4. Hmmm...I'll have to give this one some thought. Aren't nicknames funny? I'm sure that someday, Cakes is going to seriously object to her nickname, but we can't help it! Even when we decide to make an effort to call her by her given name, we always slip back into Cakes and all of its variations.

    I tried to buy a Dairy Queen cake poster for her room, because it said, "The Magic of Cakes," but they wouldn't sell it to me.

    I just have to say, your kids are all just beautiful, and I love your family picture.

  5. I like The Milt, but how 'bout The Miltonator? or ('cuz of the brown hair) Chocolate Milt?

  6. Both my hubby and my dad are nick name masters. I'll have to think about this.

    My boys are Critter and Pudge, they'll probably hate those nicknames in a few years.

    How 'bout MightyMilty, he is quite strapping.

  7. Your kids are just gorgeous!!
