new name

Toby’s been calling me Daddy since he could talk, but in the last six months or so has also been calling me Dad from time to time (now about 1/5th of the time). Lately however he’s been copying his friend Hudson at church who calls his dad Papa, so I have a third name. I’m not sure I feel like a Papa, although it does make me feel quite northern European, and maybe like I should be smoking a pipe.
