Brice has become territorial of his NAME!

Yes, Brice owns his name with great pride these days. Only, he THINKS his name is actually "Brice Juice" and sometimes this morphs into "Fice Juice" is his "B" sound is misprounounced. He proudly tells people that "My name is Brice Juice." Sometimes he refers to himself in the third person as in "Mommy, sing Brice Juice a song" or "Give Brice Juice a kiss."
So that you don't think we are completely nuts, the term Brice juice came about because of that energy drink that was created by the rap singer Nelly, called "Pimp Juice". Brice is constantly full of vigor and energy almost like he'd had a few energy drinks. While it would certainally be inappropriate to call him "Pimp Juice" (though "Red Bull" doesn't sound so bad) we figured we'd dubb him "Brice Juice." He loves him name and is in fact, rather territorial of it.
A few mornings ago, I asked him I I might be called "Mommy Juice." He became very indignant and replied "NO! I am Brice Juice. You are throw-up." Okay then.
He is also obsessed with the fact that in the course of normal conversation, occasionally his name may be mentioned. He doesn't seem to appreciate needless mention of his name. When his name is spoken, he perks up like a dog and says "What? You talk my name? Who talk my name?"
We say to him "No one Brice. No one talked your name." Yesterday he took his disdain for "talking his name" to a new level. I called him to the table to eat and he replied "Don't talk my name Mommy." Okay. So Emanuel tried. "Brice, it's time to eat."
Brice grew even more irritated. "I say don't talk my name!" he yelled. Alrighty then. So I tried a different approach. Afterall, I needed him to sit and eat so I could fix the next kids plate ( so that I might have some small hope of actually eating my own food while it's half way warm).
"Hey...three year old. Come eat."
"No Mommy!" he muttered. "My name Brice Juice. Call me Brice Juice." Okay that's it. Albert burst out laughing. I set his plate down on the table and simply said. "Here is your food."

Oh Baby Ang.
You're so busted. When you were just about Brice's age -I don't remember the details behind it - but no one could call you Angela, Ang or Angie. You were "Mary, Mother of Jesus". At times, you wore a little scarf on your head so that you could look like her. You also bowed your head alot pretending like you were praying. Your father thought it was some crazy Catholic thing, but it was just you! We went to a picnic with a bunch of families, and again, you would talk to no one unless they addressed you as "Mary, Mother of Jesus". One little boy got tired of saying the whole thing, so he shortened it to Mary Mother, and that name stuck for the rest of the day. Seeing that you weren't going to let this one go, I decided to sit down with you, pull out your baby book, and go page at a time showing you how special being Angela was!! It worked, you reverted back to your given name. I have to say, we were so relieved - it was embarrassing trying to explain to people that we weren't taking Jesus and his mother lightly, you were just obsessed with her. So, tell him how wonderful it is to be Brice, and that it's ok for everyone to call him by name because he is special.

Love and Kisse!!
Mom

There is a P.S. to my entry. Your niece Kylie went thru her own name identy crisis. She didn't want to be called Kylie, baby, princess or even Cinderella. Getting very frustrated with all of us calling out different names, she finally bellowed "Nothing People" - just call me "Nothing People". The name stuck for a long time. What made it so funny, she answered to it!

Love you lots!
