Go Boo Boo

So, I was checking the stat counter, and kind of freaked out at all the visits since I know like maybe 2 dozen people that might be interested in the goings on in my life, and Andy said,"well, you do have "boo-b" in the title of your blog." He claims to have just thought of it, while thinking, well what is "nasty" about her blog. Hello! Have you people thought of that before??? As you may know I am sort of slow, sort of like when I did my email address as 'booknight' intending it to be 'boo knight' my nickname obviously, until my brother pointed out that my email address was funny 'book night'. Well, I really do love to read.

If I haven 't explained the reason for my title, here goes. When I was five, my number 1 fan was my little sister Rachel, who was 3 at the time. Well, we have on video a very fun, backyard soccer game, where Rachel was constantly heard in the background, from our jungle gym, cheering "Go Boo Boo, Go Boo Boo, Go Boo Boo" in the cutest, 3 year old, cheer voice you can imagine. I have been known as Boo Boo for as long as I can remember, most people I knew when I was little still call me Boo Boo, and I love it when Andy, or anyone does now. Of course, I didn't like it between about 8 and 20, but I think it's cute. I clearly remember when my Mom and I were registering for Kindergarten in the office at Harbor View, and the register lady and my Mom asked me if I wanted to be known and called Boo, but I chose not. Sometimes I wish I had chosen Boo, wouldn't that have been cool. I was known as "Fro" throughout Junior High when puberty dealt me serious acne issues and very tight curls on my already very thick hair. I recall some kids didn't even know my real name (or they pretended not to, no I really think this Mike character didn't know my real name). Anyway, there is my nickname history, and the history of 'Go Boo Boo'.

Upon closer inspection of my stat counter, I really only have about 30 unique visitors, which doesn't freak me out at all, I can see that, so I am not so worried I am contributing to the downfall of the world through the internet. Phew!

i myself have wondered about the "go boo boo" thing as well. you could always shorten it to "go boobs" because your boobs pretty much rock!! hee hee (inside joke from conversation today)

I see alot of boobs that seem to always pop up on my screen, but I never related that to your name. I too heard the family story and love it. Go Boo Boo! Hugs to All

That is freakin awesome with the BooBs thing! I was Fro too and Boo Stains, Hershey Squirts, etc. Yikes, boys are mean.

Anyway, I love it! GO BOO BOO. And ps, the best part is that I was totally playing the whole time and still cheering you on!

I've always wondered the origin or your cute nick-name...thanks for sharing!!! Now I think I'll just call you "Boobs"! Jody - get an internet filter for crying out loud!!!! Scary! :)

I also loved hearing where boo boo got it's origin. But Go Boobs is good too.

Just today I picked up a ceramic pumpkin with the words Boo attached and thought of you. Love all things Boo since we were fortunate to have you join the fam. Trevlyn's comment on Jody needing a filter cracked me up.
