Sugar is sooo cute! I not only call my girls something else, i change their names quite often until one really sticks.
Suki was Summer Sage, then chloe, mia.
Ling Ling was Mocha, then Mika for 2 years before i changed it to her name now 🤷🏻♀️
And then there are the nicknames ”Lacie underpants”, “Suki my favorite “and Ling Ling is “Kaka face.”
