Nicknames: The Door Man Edition

My friend, Robin, said I should clue you all in on the nicknames that I have used, specifically the Door Man's.

His is really obvious, if you know him IRL. He is OBSESSED with doors. It has abated for a while, but we were able to catch glimpses of the Door Man over the weekend at my brother's camper. DM stood at the camper door, opening and shutting it, going into the bathroom, running around the camper, only to return to that door.

When he was little, that was all he would do. We would always joke that we were going to give him a fake door in the hallway, just so he could open and shut it to his heart's desire.

And of course, his actions have now hurled him into the potential career of being a hotel or ritzy apartment door man.

But the height of DM's career was when we were at Robin's house for a parade. And all DM would do was open all the doors he could find, including the refrigerator.

He still does it today, of course. He loves to open the door to the Chandelier Monkey's preschool. But the best is when he jumps out of his seat in the van, slams his door shut, and comes running around to my door, and opens it for his Mommy.

That is not an obsession. That is chivalry.

Sounds a little like my boy (#1)...but he only opens the REFRIDGERATOR door.

Whenever he gets home.
When he's bored.

The other day, I said "Son, are you hungry?" as he's staring into the depths of the fridge. ANd he says "No, MOm. Why?"...Ummmm, you're staring into the fridge?

I just don't get it.

Found you on Blogger Chicks. I enjoy your writing! Have a great week...

Sounds like my nephew. He HAS to be the one to open and close the door. If not, he has a complete meltdown. His sister will purposely open a door first to get a reaction out of him. It's kind of funny.

Kailani ... oh my gosh! That is DEFINITELY the DM. He has been known to almost run over the Monkey just to get to the door first. I am glad to know that DM is not a phenomenon.

I would definitely claim, "chivalry." What a sweet boy!

Opening doors for ladies is a lost art. I would be very proud to have a doorman of my own, I have two teenage boys...who are a little clumsy at this point and only seem to run into the doors in my house at this point.
