I happened to see some videos on YouTube ( SIT Series, which anyone of you are familiar with, it is s**ty ideas trending…) in which the husband and wife are addressing each other as baby….. I was wondering how they will address their own baby coz then there will be say 3 or 4 babies in the house and when the wife calls baby who will answer, hus or baby…. Heheee… ( I know it is silly) My grandmother (very common in those days) would never take my grandfather’s name or use any formal name to address him ( some call Anna, anakoo) The way to initiate a conversation was to stand in front of him and simply start talking. Of course, her words were loud and clear enough that even if she doesn’t appear in front of him the tone and the words made everyone aware that these words ever for him only. Then my mom too used a similar approach wherein she would start talking and my dad will understand that she is talking to him. Now being brought up in such a background I too follow the same procedure and start talking so we never required to call any names such as baby, shonu, beta, darling etc. I somehow started my mom’s method to talk to my husband. Of course the ladies in my family including me and blessed with audible decibels that we don’t require a formal addressing. Now coming to the point, I would like to know from you ladies how you address your better half. I am not asking you to mention the words you use to pamper your DH but on a regular conversation, do you address him with his first name or some nickname. Between, I take his name in all occasions when asked and amidst any conversations among relatives. My mom is still not used to it and mention as “ childname dad”….
