Babu is a name. It’s a weird name. It’s a weird name that we did not choose, never considered, and had never even heard of before it was thrust unceremoniously into our lives.
Babu is the nickname Noah gave to Tobias when he decided that his name was too hard to pronounce. We thought it would disappear. We thought it would be a passing phase like Gareth Gates, flares or Tamagotchi. Alas, no. It has remained. In fact it has stuck so much that we’re pretty sure Tobias thinks that it’s his actual name. Family members use it, friends are catching on.
Never did I imagine that my beautiful Tobias James would be branded Babu for the rest of time. Though as it turns out, I use it just as much as everyone else; probably more so. Go figure.
