A Child Called Chicken


When we had our first daughter we called her Caitlin but very soon started calling her Chicken. I’m not sure why but it was just an affectionate pet name we called her for about 12 months.

“Come on chicken – eat your dinner”, “hey chicken – let’s go for  a walk”, “night night chicken”

You forget how impressionable kids are at this age, at least I did, till one day I walked in whilst she was colouring and said “Hey Caitlin”

Nothing…as kids do she totally ignores me and continued colouring





“Hey, chicken…”

She immediately looks up at me and smiles

To my horror I realise my daughter actually thinks her name is Chicken!
