The Chaotic Conniptions This Conundrum Is Creating.

Sarah and I had a terrible thought yesterday. Our terrible thought was this: For four years we have all been calling the College Dude, the, um, College Dude.

But on Friday, he is graduating and at that point he can no longer legally be referred to as the College Dude. So. What to do? What to do? What to do about the College Dude?

Do we call him the Grad Dude? The Almost Married Dude? The In Between His Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree Dude? His Mama’s Little Boy Dude?

Ah, the chaotic conniptions this conundrum is creating.

In the meantime, since he is still a real and genuine College Dude, I have been busy sending out College Dude Graduation announcements on his behalf.

While all the while pondering the pending conundrum.

Just call him "The Awesome Dude" and be done with it. That will cover grad school, marriage, fatherhood, and beyond...

You could call him Nathan.

I kind of agree with bearie1. Think about it...usually Steve is "Steve." To call Nathan "Nathan" would be to recognize his adult status.

On the other hand, as the mother of adult sons I know that sometimes we don't WANT to acknowledge that our chicks are flown!

I have faith that you and Sarah will come up with the perfect choice.

The senior graduate student in our lab is leaving with her doctorate in a little over a month. I've been referring to her as "the senior grad student" on my blog, and was faced with a similar conundrum. Before it could come to disaster, though, she found out about my blog and asked if she could choose herself a pseudonym. What if you asked Nathan what he wanted to be called and went with that? I bet he could come up with a ridiculous pseudonym all his own (or just "Nathan," which he might like).

I think he's finally become "Nathan"! College grad, half of Meganate, awesome brother, incredible son! (But I'm sure you two will come up with something!)

Well, for a couple of months he could be the
Groom Dude....
