My 10 1/2 year old daughter is Goose. When she was a baby I started calling her "Silly Goose." Eventually that shortened to Goose and the name has stuck. I am the only person she lets call her Goose though, not her Dad or Grandparents or friends.
About two years ago we had a surprise for Goose. After many years of waiting and hoping and praying we found out that Goose was to be a big sister. At first she wasn't too sure that this was such a great idea. But now that Gosling is 18 months old, Goose is finding out that being a big sister can be a lot of fun, especially when your little sister looks up to and loves you as much as Gosling obviously loves Goose! So far, we don't actually call Gosling, Gosling. She hasn't really acquired a nick name as of yet. But it sounded cute for the blog, so I went with it.
