One of my kids has requested that I change my name.
They’ve always called me “Daddy.” There may have been some period of “Da-Da” back in the early days, but I actually don’t remember it. I’ve just always been “Daddy” since they were born.
But apparently it’s not cool for a teenager, or a pre-teen, to call their father “Daddy,” so now I’m “Dad.”
That’s going to take some getting used to.
