I have a ds who we named Joshua. A lovely name we thought can be shortened to Josh which we also thought was nice for a man or a child. BUT we have a relative who repeatedly calls him Joshie and i know it's stupid but i hate it! It isn't something either my Dh or i call him. Even our almost 3 yrs old calls him Josh.
I don't know about anyone else but i always take my cue's from a parents child before shortening the child's name. And in all my yrs wroking as a nanny that was a question i would ask when having my interview.
I know it's something i just need to suck up and get over. josh will be old enough soon to tell people what he wants to be called. But does anyone else find this annoying?
