    Chloe rarely gets called her name. She is generally known as Boo-boo. Then my mum sometimes calls her Ruby Lee (which is her middle names – and were names she was going to have before she was born presuming she was a girl!). As a bump she was called Junior.
    Her other nickname is Puckypoo. A phrase I thought my other half kept calling her. It should be Duckypoo (a reference to late 80s kids cartoon Count Duckula) but I hear Puckypoo. So it’s stuck!
