Demi has referred to Cam as “brudder” for as long as she could make reference to him. It’s been at least a year and a half. And it is SO charming and sweet.
“Brudder, what are you doing?”
Well, about a month ago, I was feeling silly and teased her lightly. She said something about “brudder” and I responded with “Huh? You want butter?”
We went back and forth and she got (playfully) frustrated and exclaimed “NO! I mean CAM-DEN!”
And that was it. That was the end of “brudder.” Cold. Turkey!
I never intended on squashing that darling little pet name. I regret my teasing immensely.
At this point, she has gone as far as to correct us as well. If we ask her about brudder, she says, “You mean CAM-DEN!!!”
I will certainly be more thoughtful about my teasing henceforth. And may I never forget her little voice exclaiming “brudder!”
