Sushi Names

For Christmas, Evan received an incredibly awesome gift, a toy sushi set.  He has played with it every day since he got it.  Evan is also in the phase of naming things.  He has named his sushi.  (We’re guess on what the sushi is since some of the pieces only look like real sushi from far away.)


Magurio (Tuna) is named Sushi.

Tamangoyaki (egg sushi) is named Juicy.

Sake (Salmon) is called Dooky.

Hamachi (Yellowtail) is called Hooky.

Hirame (Flounder) is called Sicky.


So we have Sushi, Juicy, Dooky, Hooky, Sicky.  And they all call me “Mom.”

    Totally adorable.

  3. Court Says:

    Sounds like what the seven dwarfs should have really been called!

  4. mediocreperfectionist Says:

    Ok, seriously, I need to see a picture of these sushi offspring of yours. (Personally, of the sushi represented, I would have named the Hirame “Sicky” too.) We are still in the phase where everything is names exactly what it is. I look forward to such variety. 🙂

    Toy sushi?! My chef hubby would’ve loved to give that to our kids!

    Now that they’re older, all three love sushi (and not just the cooked kind). And the 11 and 9yo are adept with chopsticks.

    We swagger with pride whenever we take them to a sushi bar. 😉

    Me? I’m pretty much a California Roll girl. But hubby taught me to use chopsticks a decade ago.

    I’m totally buying my kids that toy sushi set now, btw. So CUTE!

    And the names? Aha ha ha ha. If that isn’t the most *priceless* memory I have heard in a long time, I don’t know what is!

    Opps! Did I miss the link the first time? So friggin’ cute! We NEED this. 🙂

    I guess you should count yourself lucky that they call you “mommy,” and not something more creative!

    UPDATE: We also own the Melissa and Doung wooden set (from last Christmas). Evan has started naming those. One of the spicy tuna cut roll is Ficky, and one piece of California roll is Noodley.

  11. faemom Says:

    C: I love making your day.

    Coco: Thank you.

    Court: Really. Who wants a dwarf called Grumpy when you can have one called Sushi or Juicy?

    Mediocre: I miss links and stuff like that all the time. My dad says it’s the blonde in me. I totally remember that phase when I was begging Evan to name his doll or his teddy. It’ll be great when yours gets there . . . until he’s naming EVERYTHING.

    ck: I’ve learned to shop on the internet for the most fun and unusual toys. I avoid duplicates that way.

    Steph: That’s awesome! You must make some parents so jealous. My brothers and I all love sushi, trying it in our early adult years, but my mom, not a fish eater, takes credit, saying that she must have raised us right for us to try something so different from what we were raised with.

    Modern: I hope your kids love it as much as mine do.

    Lately Evan calls me Mommy or Master Tiger. Only the sushi call me Mom.

  13. outside voice Says:

    OMG, I love this post. (And “Master Tiger” sounds kind of awesome, too! Is that a Kung-Fu-Panda-inspired thing?)

  14. faemom Says:

    We are living and breathing Kung Fu Panda since Christmas. I sprung for the Furious Five special edition. I am Master Tiger. Seanny is Baby Master Viper. Evan jumps between Master Mantis and Master Monkey. The funny part is that Evan hardly plays with the Po I sent my dad in search for. Named sushi is way more fun.

    […] by faemom on February 7, 2009 Does anyone remember Sicky the Sushi?  Well, Evan has decided this is a super name for all kinds of […]
