Why are the Demons called demons?

Some of you are maybe wondering why I call my children "Demon #1" and "Demon #2". It has absolutely nothing to do with their behavior, looks or anything of the sort. It started way back in 1994 when I was pregnant with Demon #1. She was an active baby and at times it looked like I was going to birth an alien out of my belly button. Not knowing if this little baby was female or male, I started calling it "the demon spawn seeded from the devil himself"... because she was a difficult pregnancy and - jokingly - I'd blame the husband - her father - the devil - for doing this to me.

When I became pregnant the 2nd time, it was just natural to call that one a demon, too. Although she was the easiest pregnancy a woman could ask for... and the BEST baby!!! Far from a demon, thats for sure, but the names stuck.

So anyone out there who thinks I call my children demons because I don't like them or can't control them or they are these awful children... it's far from the truth. Sometimes assumptions do only one thing... makes an ass out of people and it's usually the person doing the assuming.

Demon #1's other nickname is Monster - for the same pregnancy reasons. Demon #2's nickname is Bear because it sounds cute with "Krissy". Are those bad nicknames for kids? You be the judge.

Oh sweetie...stop exlaining yourself to a bunch of losers who only feel better about themselves by putting other people down. That's why they're called "trolls". I have 3 daughters, and I don't think I ever questioned why you call your kids "Demon 1 & 2", because, well, I have 3 daughters. And see? You don't even call them that for the reasons I thought! Sorry to hear about the attacks...going forward just ignore. Really. You have absolutely no reason to listen to those people. Next time a negative comment comes your way, picture Jabba the Hut sitting at a computer typing the comment to you, and laugh it off.

I agree with Jenny. You have no need to explain yourself.
That person should be ashamed of themselves.

You go girl! I think it's cute that you call them "demons" and we all know that you don't mean anything mean by it.

Some people need to get a life.

Anyone that would need this explained to them probably needs a lot more about the world explained to them! If you can't make jokes and laugh in life and call your kids whatever you damn well want then where's the fun in life ha ha

You call your kids Demons, I call mine the Hurricanes...or the Brothers of Destruction...or Thing 1 and Thing 2 (doesn't work too well anymore b/c well, now there is a Thing 3, LOL) Call you kids whatever you want as long as you are fine with it and they are fine with it, it's nobody else's damn business!!!! So :P on them!! (Yeah, I've been working with kids WAAAYYY too long, lol)
