Crappy Baby’s New Look and Name

When I started this whole crappy pictures thing (almost two years ago now) I didn’t for a moment think that two years later I’d still be doing it. Not to mention having published a book and such.

I called my youngest “Crappy Baby” because he was a baby. He isn’t a baby anymore! Babies get older. It’s weird and unexpected.

If you’ve seen my drawings you know that I strive for 100% accuracy at all times. So I think it is time for an update.

Until recently, the boys actually looked more like this:


But then they asked to get haircuts. Mainly because the lady at the salon gives them lollipops, but whatever. Less combing for me.

They return from the salon.

I tell them that they look older!


They beam with pride.

Looking “older” is the ultimate compliment when you are a kid and the ultimate insult when you are an adult.

Yay! Older! They are so happy!

Crappy Baby asks:


Ha ha, not that old. Nice try though.

So now I’m asking for your input.

Now that Crappy Baby has an updated look, does he need an updated name?

What should he be called here on this blog?


What should the two of them be?

Crappy Youngest and Crappy Oldest?

Crappy Boy One and Crappy Boy Two?

Crappy Oldest Boy and Crappy Youngest Boy?

Keep him as Crappy Baby because people hate change? Bueller?

I even made a poll.

[poll id=”2″]



Any other ideas – add them in the comments.

Oh & if everyone votes for Farkles I probably, maybe won’t listen. Because that’s just like, your opinion, man.

  1. Emily says:

    What about Crappy One and Crappy Two? Like Thing 1 and 2 from Dr Seuss ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. eschelle says:

    I would do eldest and youngest, same way I refer to my brats on my blog ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Fenny says:

      The pedant in me is thinking “Elder” and “Younger” if there are only 2 of them. But I try and keep these things to myself!

  3. Libbie says:

    How about crappy boy and crappy toddler?

  4. Louise says:

    I can’t help it– I’m attached to Crappy Baby.

    • Woolies says:

      Me too, that’s what I voted for. Unless Amber will consider crappy boy one and crappy boy two.

      • Meg says:

        I agree. I don’t like change. Keep the same names. In fact, I think you should keep the same designs for the boys too. It would be hilarious to read about crappy baby learning to drive a car or going to the prom accompanied by pictures of a yellow cloth diapered little guy doing those things. But if you feel you must change them, crappy one and crappy two have a nice ring.

    • Kim says:

      I’m attached to Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby. The youngest will always be the baby, right. Well, my 30 year old brother is still a big baby ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Devan says:

      I like it the way it is…crappy boy and crappy baby, too. You have to change their look, but the second will always be your baby….unless you have another baby, he should stay baby. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Christina F. says:

    i was totally tempted to vote for farkles and kitty glitter. but then i was kind of afraid they would win. and then i’d never be able to take you seriously again.

  6. This makes me glad that I have a GirlChild and a BoyChild for my blog…and makes me seriously consider whether that’s just enough children. Maybe if we have a third, I can just call it Ender… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Bethany says:

      Brilliant! You made me lol.

    • Lindsey says:

      That is awesome! Ender! lol!

    • Laura Brown says:

      We named our 3rd fetus Ender (just to have something to call him before we knew what he was going to be), and joked that we were actually going to name him Andrew if he was a boy…fast-forward to 3 days after birth and he still didn’t have a name, and it turns out that was the perfect name for him. 3 years later, he’s still Ender me!

  7. Marie says:

    I second “one” and “two”… Leaves baby open for a..uh …oops?

    • Raji P. says:

      haha! I was thinking the same thing …. leaves room for Crappy Oops ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Rachel says:

        Crappy Oops! Too funny!

        • Monica says:

          bwahahahah.. I LOVE Crappy Oops!!

          (I’m now secretly hoping and wishing and holding thumbs, you will soon announce that Crappy Oops is on his/her way to meet all your Crappy Fans!!) teeheehee

  8. Ellby says:

    I wouldn’t change a thing <3

    • Jessica says:

      Hey if crappy boy and crappy baby made this blog famous, I’d stick with it! We will all know that baby isn’t a baby eventually ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Denise says:

    How about Crappy Boy and the Little Poop? Lol! Seriously, what about Little Crappy Boy?
    Crappy Junior?

  10. Jaime says:

    My youngest is 3 1/2 and I still call him “the baby”…. maybe I will stop when he gets in high school.

    • Devan says:

      My 3.5 y/o baby is a girl…I am pretty sure I will always call her the baby, because she always will be! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Chelsi says:

    Keep it the same until you have another baby.

  12. Berit says:

    It’s true that people hate change. But really, Crappy Baby will ALWAYS be your baby… no matter how old he gets! Just ask my mom, I’m her baby and I’m 32 years old with a baby of my own!

  13. Sarah says:

    You can’t do oldest and youngest because there are only two. Technically that would be wrong, wrong, wrong. You can do older and younger, but that’s not funny. I like Farkles and Kitty Glitter.

  14. Erica says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid… Possibly Kiddo if you’re feelin it

  15. Dionne says:

    You should just call him “number two” as that would be more amusing!

  16. Suzy says:

    I think they should be Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid. We know them well enough, we can tell them apart! Now, are you also going to be adding clothes for Crappy Baby? Or will he still have the diaper/underwear that we can identify as him?

    • Cindy says:

      Yes! I was thinking crappy kid. It wasn’t an option on the poll. So crappy boy and crappy kid

      • Nicole Heumann says:

        I was scrolling down to suggest crappy kid too! But only if you are planning on having more! If you aren’t, crappy baby is just fine because he will always be the “baby” of your family.

  17. Travis says:

    How about “Number 1” and “Number 2”? They fit the “Crappy” theme… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Melissa says:

    Keep them as Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby…I suspect he will always be your baby…unless there is news on the way. OMG…is there another Crappy Baby on the way? Maybe a Crappy Girl?!

    • Melissa says:

      OMG…just saw the italics comments. (How did I miss that? They’re usually the funniest part!) <3 the Lebowski reference. The Dude abides.

    • Alicia says:

      These were my thoughts exactly. Crappy 1 and 2 sound good if there’s another baby.

  19. Christy says:

    I have two girls and often find myself calling them Big Girl and Little. So you could do Crappy Big and Crappy Little

  20. Jon says:

    Since Farkles and Kitty Glitter are losing, I vote for another option: Crappy Boy and Crappy Sibling…

  21. sophmiller says:

    crapy straight and crappy curly?

  22. Lisa says:

    crappy boy & crappy brother?

  23. Jessica says:

    I still think Crappy Baby and Crappy Boy are best. Even though he isn’t a baby, he is the “baby” of the family ๐Ÿ™‚ Unless you have more…then we can re-evaluate the name imo ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Staci says:

    I like Crappy Big and Crappy Little!!!

  25. Kristine says:

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby.

  26. Ugh, I hate getting their hair cut. Then I have to admit they are growing up! I vote for Crappy Kid Brother.

    But this makes me wonder if I need to rename my youngest on my blog. He’s called Stow because he kind of stowed away one fall. Of course we’re glad he did, but the name kind of stuck. Hoping he doesn’t think too hard about the name, you know, when he’s grown and can read and use the Internet 100 years from now.

  27. Desiree says:

    I really liked the pickle idea. My oldest had an imaginary friend named pickle…he lived in a cone at the beach and every time we drove by the beach with the DQ we had to stop and make sure his friend was ok.

  28. Sara says:

    No… like… change… keep… Crappy… Baby…

    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Laura says:

    He will always be your baby. My mom still calls my brother her baby and he’s 30. ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Becca Hall says:

    Keep Crappy Baby. He will always be your baby. Well, unless you have another crappy baby. Then we’ll reconvene.

  31. Kat says:

    I like Crappy Curly!

  32. krystal whana says:

    leave it ccrappy boy and crappy baby, he will always be your crappy baby even when he does “do coffee”
    However, i do like farkles and kitty glitter

  33. Rachel says:

    Crappy Artist (Crappy Boy) from this post

    Crappy Comedian (Crappy Baby)

  34. Cassi says:

    I’d keep it as is until a new Crappy Baby (cough, cough) happens along, though you might get lucky, from a names standpoint, and have that one be a girl. However, if you’re into changing them, I’d opt for a Dr. Seuss theme: Thing 1 and Thing 2. ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Lilia Sawyer says:

    Crappy First and Crappy Second. That way, you can always have a “Crappy Third,” etc. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  36. Christina W. says:

    I think Little Crappy and Big Crappy would be funny.

  37. Elizabeth says:

    I dislike change, so I opted for Crappy Boy & Crappy Baby. Can you blame me? I’ve been hooked for a while.

  38. Brenda says:

    What about Crappy Big and Crappy Little?

  39. Aliya says:

    How about Crappy Big Boy and Crappy Brother?

  40. Jill S says:

    IDK if you have ever mentioned what their actual names are but maybe change them to crappy J (like for Joshua) and crappy P (for a P name).

    If you wanna get jiggy with it you could call them Big Crappy J and Lil’ Crappy P. haha

    Otherwise I voted to keep them the same. What if you have another baby? Then you might have to change them again?

  41. eliese says:

    crappy major and crappy minor

  42. Velvet says:

    I voted to stay the same, because although he’s not a baby, he is the baby of the family. Unless you plan to have another, in which case that baby will be the baby, and then it will be sad to change Crappy Baby’s name since he might feel as if his identity was taken. Also maybe he feels bad being called a baby. Curses, now I’m over thinking it and I already voted. Can I change my vote to Farkles & Kitty Glitter

  43. Different Emily says:

    The nice thing about boy and baby is they are short and sweet. Maybe crappy big and crappy little. If there was ever a third little becomes medium and new becomes little.

  44. Molly says:

    Crappy Big and Crappy Little

  45. Joy says:

    Well, technically, you should have Crappy OldER and Crappy YoungER since there are only two of them.

    Sorry to be the Grammar Police!

    • Sarah says:

      Joy is correct. One cannot use the superlative where there are only two.

      • Nina says:

        LOL, I was thinking the same thing. How about Crappy the Elder and Crappy the Younger? (I know, too formal.) I think I like “Crappy Boy 1” and “Crappy Boy 2.”

  46. sophmiller says:

    I meant ‘crappy’ not ‘crapy’. It’s late.

    crappy straight’ and ‘ crappy curly’

  47. Emily Rooker says:

    I refer to mine as Minion of Evil #s 1 & 2. My daughter will even tell you she’s my Minion of Evil. (Started as a joke from an exhausted me saying they were Minions of Evil sent to steal my sleep, but it stuck when she started calling herself that.)

  48. KIM says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Boy Jr.

  49. Kolla says:

    What about Crappy senior and Crappy junior ?? Or Crappy kid and Crappy boy ?

    • Sparki says:

      Sr and Jr was my first thought too. =) Though I do also like Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid.

  50. Selena says:

    until/unless you have another child the names work. Our babies are our babies even when they are grown. Allowing for growth and change, they both may come into nicknames that could be used when the time is right ๐Ÿ™‚

  51. Sophie Walker says:

    He’ll always be your baby. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Plus, change is scary! ๐Ÿ˜€

  52. Elizabeth says:

    I like little boy and big boy or bigger boy or older boy. I like little better than younger or youngest. Or you could refer to them by their names with just using the letter like J or M.

  53. Rebecca says:

    I can’t believe so many people want to keep it the same! Crappy boy 1 and crappy boy 2 is great, and much more accurate.

  54. Tiffini S. says:

    Il Deuce.

  55. Dawg_doll says:

    I like crappy older brother and crappy little brother. Which can always be shorted to bro. Crappy old bro and crappy lil bro

  56. Krysta says:

    I like Crappy One and Crappy Two. Kind of like Thing 1 and Thing 2. Or Turd 1 and Turd 2. Ha! Sticks with the crappy theme. I’m a mean mom. When my kids are being brats, I call them little turds, so you know.

  57. chuggid says:

    Crappy boy and Crappito!

  58. girlfromthefuture says:

    Crappy the Elder, Crappy the Younger

    Crappy the Big, Crappy the Little

    Have you asked the boys? I’m sure they’ll have some good suggestions

    • Monica says:

      hahaha.. would love to know what the boys would suggest.. they will probably fight over who gets to be named Crappy Poop.. ๐Ÿ˜›

  59. Jo says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother.

  60. Heather says:

    Like others have said I wish one choice was Crappy One and Crappy Two ๐Ÿ™‚

  61. Ginny says:

    Crappy One and Crappy Two are good because it leaves open the option for Crappy Future Children.

  62. Marilynn says:

    Crappy Big and Crappy Little

  63. Anne says:

    crappy boy and little crap, or crap little?

  64. Rana says:

    After reading all these comments, I have to say that the word “crappy” is now looking really strange to me…

  65. Why wasn’t Crappy Pickle in the poll? ๐Ÿ™‚ Totally would’ve voted for that!

    • Bree says:

      I Agree! I also think Crappy Pickle is awesome.

      • Marissa says:

        Agreed!! Crappy Pickle is definitely a winner. I call my youngest Chicken Lips. I silly nickname is always good for a kid ๐Ÿ™‚

  66. Anna Bagley says:

    Crappy one and crappy two

  67. Melanie says:

    Big Crap and Little Crap, or Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother. Change is good…according to a former high school band director.

  68. Tamlyn says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler?

  69. shannon says:

    Crappy Boy Wonder and Crappy Sidekick?

  70. kat says:

    I like Crappy Farkles and Crappy Pickle. Sadly this was not an option. Crappy One and Crappy Two has the 12 year old in me giggling uncontrollably. Possibly Crappy One and Crappy Also?

  71. Kat says:

    You must realize that it is nearly impossible NOT to vote for Farkles?

    I think Crappy Baby is fine – forever, even when he’s 40. Because he will always be your crappy baby and thereby our crappy baby as an audience. We will always know who you’re referring to.

    As a group, why not Crappy Kids?

  72. Ashley says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler…? Which would only mean you would have to change his name again when he gets even older…

  73. Lori Miller says:

    How about Crappy Big Brother and Crappy Little Brother. We often refer to my two boys of similar age as Big Brother and Little Brother (or they’ll just call each other brother).

  74. I’m glad you added that addendum because if Farkles and Kitty Glitter were legit choices, I WOULD TOTALLY VOTE FOR THAT.

  75. catherine says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother

  76. Christine edwards says:

    Should you move on to Crappy tween and Crappy boy?

  77. Sarah M says:

    Big crappy / Little crappy !

  78. Alessa says:

    Call him just Number two. It already contains the crappy.

  79. prerna says:

    Crappy Biggie, Crappy smalley, and if u have another one, Crappy Tiny :))

    • Kiran says:

      Oooh, I like it! But with a minor tweak: Crappy Biggie & Crappy Smalls. Straight up East Coast cred.

  80. Nancy says:

    I would have chosen Farkles & Kitty Glittet but I asked my 6yr old crappy girl. We all know that 6yr old crappy girl’s have the best taste. She went with Crappy Boy One & Two.

  81. Brandy says:

    Crappy Curly. That was my favorite!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  82. valerie says:

    If you are like my mom, the youngest wil always be your baby boy.

  83. Gail says:

    “Crappy One” and “Crappy Two,” that way if there are ever Crappy Triplets, you can easily keep going with the crappy naming scheme without worrying about change in the future.

  84. Angela says:

    I am curious what names the boys themselves would like. They come up with some pretty original ideas and this would be the opportunity of a lifetime for them to “name themselves”

  85. Kris says:

    Crappy Kid has a nice ring to it.

    • beth says:

      It might be time to take the dress off of Crappy Boy. I see why the younger is outgrowing the name Crappy Baby. Maybe another solution would be Crappy Junior. Or even Crappy Boy Jr.– BJ for short?

  86. Brittany says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy little Boy.

  87. anna says:

    I like Crappy One and Crappy Two. Yup.

  88. Happy says:

    How about “Crappy Boy” and “Little Crapper”. For some reason, that just makes me smile. I’m okay with leaving well enough alone too…

  89. Michelle says:

    No. No. No. No. You can’t change it. After all, Crappy Baby will ALWAYS be your baby. Even when he’s 42. No changing the names. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Rene says:

      This is what I was thinking too! He’ll always be your baby…but then I really liked Little Crapper too…those options leaves open the availability of another Crappy Baby??!

  90. Carrie says:

    How about Crappy Boy and Crappy Boy Too!

  91. Laura says:

    I was going to suggest Crappy Older Brother and Crappy Younger Brother, but I saw that someone put Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother, which I like better.

    Love your blog!

  92. Robin says:

    My vote is for crappy one and crappy two. Or the ‘boy’ in there works too

  93. I’d go with Crappy one and Crappy two.

  94. What about Youngest Crappy and Eldest Crappy?

  95. Ashley B says:

    I voted for Crappy Boy One and Crappy Boy Two in the poll (mostly because I wanted to see the results…) but my REAL vote is for Crappy One and Crappy Two. I like whoever said it’s like Thing One and Thing Two.

  96. Aimee says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Little. Or how about Crappy Boy and Craplet? Or Crappy Boy and Number Two.

  97. Monica says:

    How about Crappy Big Boy and Crappy Little Boy.

  98. gwyneth says:

    go for the old style roman sound – Crappy the elder and crappy the younger, or Crappy Major and Crappy Minor.

    • Veronica says:

      I like crappy the elder and crappy the younger also. it sounds so regal! perfect spoken in a snobby british accent “announcing sir crappy the elder and sir crappy the younger”

  99. Amy says:

    I am a full supporter of calling him Crappy Baby well into his 50s. I still call my niece “New Baby,” and she’s going on 10.

  100. Jaime says:

    Crappy Boy stays the same. Crappy Baby changes to Crappy Bub.

  101. Andrea C. says:

    Crappy Big Brother and Crappy Little Brother, ’cause really, isn’t that how most of us think of siblings? (Or was I the only one?)

    • Peta says:

      I vote for this one too! I think you need a new poll!

      • sanj says:

        My first thought was Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother! That sounds good, is respectful of both kids, and makes a pattern for possible future relatives, such as Crappy Sister or Crappy Cousin. All revolving around the firstborn star.

  102. Anja says:

    crappy curly ๐Ÿ™‚

  103. Victoria says:

    I think they should be like the Plinies. Crappy the Elder and Crappy the Younger.

  104. Amy says:

    Hey, not many people get to name their kids twice! And to get to put Crappy in the title!?! You won, no matter what. But as my mother told me when naming my kids…or at least by the time I was naming Number Seven (no that’s not his name)…. It’s your kid! Name him whatever you want. You’re the one he will grow up and blame no matter what it is. ๐Ÿ™‚

  105. shannon says:

    all of the abbreviations make me think of vanity plates for when they start to drive CRPYBOY and CRPYBBY

  106. Crystal says:

    how about Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother? b/c I mean really Crappy Baby is Crappy Boy’s Brother ๐Ÿ˜‰

  107. Michelle says:

    I like Crappy One and Crappy Two (Are you thinking what I’m thinking C1? I think I am C2! – another Bananas in Pyjamas reference). My other idea was Crapling One and Crapling Two. Or keep Crappy baby – my Dad still calls me “Bub” 37 years later…

    • Anna says:

      Crappy One and Crappy Two. Because referencing the numerical potty system is always hilarious.

  108. Tori Michel says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Kidlet. Because no one seems to use kidlet these days.

  109. Bethany says:

    Is it weird that I’ve been thinking about this for a while? I was thinking toddler but that would be a problem in a couple years. I guess in a way Crappy Baby is still the baby of the family and that’s what people are used to. On the other hand it might be weird for newbies who are “just tuning in.”

  110. Amy K.T. says:

    Crappy the Elder and Crappy the Younger.

  111. Shelley says:

    For some reason I’m attached to Crappy Boy and like Crappy Two, or Crappy Too (you know, like he’s Crappy also!) ๐Ÿ™‚

  112. Marc says:

    Common Farkles & Kitty Glitter! You can win! ๐Ÿ™‚

  113. Peta says:

    Aww, new crappy baby looks so cute! My wee man is 3 years 3 months so I can just picture the real life Crappy Baby. I voted for Crappy Boy One and Crappy Boy Two, but would be happy for you to keep it as is for continuity. I think without the word ‘boy’ it becomes a bit impersonal. Though, how about Crappy Sweetie and Crappy Darling? Or whatever your pet names are. I call my wee man ‘Bubs’ most of the time or variations thereon. Mr Bub, Bubby Boo, Bubby Bum Bum and frequently Stinky Bum.

  114. Pak says:

    If you go Chinese, specifically Mandarin, you can use Crappy Gege (older brother) and Crappy Didi (younger brother)

  115. Amy S says:

    Crappy Tot? Crappy Kiddo?

  116. Jennifer says:

    We call our older “crappy girl one” and younger “crappy girl A” just to keep them on even footing. Or big and little.

  117. Robin Jingjit says:

    I love the original crappy boy and baby. My younger son (almost 3) loves being the baby and still calls himself baby.
    Anyway, sweet long-haired boys. My older one’s hair is to his waist when it’s wet (but it’s curly)

  118. csa says:

    i voted for Crappy Oldest & Crappy Youngest, because Crappy baby isn’t a baby anymore, but some of the others (1 and 2 and such) could get confusing. also, i was thinking of whole “Pliny the elder and Pliny the younger” (a mount Vesuvius, Pompeii, Herculaneum thing) route.
    Crappy the Elder and Crappy the Younger?

    (also, sorry if anyone said this in an above comment. i didn’t read all 140 comments.)

  119. jo says:

    Crappy boy and Crappy Boy Too

    But aside from that I like Crappy 1 and Crappy 2.

    But then again, my baby is graduating from high school this year and she’s still my baby! The problem arises if you have another ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not sure if you have covered that topic in any of your crappy stories yet…

  120. Adam Klein says:

    Crappy one and crappy two.

  121. Jess says:

    Crappy 1 and Crappy 2
    Eldest Crappy and Younger Crappy
    or Crappy and Crappier

  122. Sally says:

    Crappy Senior and Crappy Junior.

  123. Bridget S. says:

    I kinda like Crappy Big and Crappy Little. Or Big Crappy and Little Crappy.

  124. Vic says:

    Crappy kid and crappy jr!

  125. Elizabeth Beckman says:

    I’m nostalgic for Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby, sniff, but I’m going to embrace change and say, Crappy Boy One and Crappy Boy Two.

  126. Haley J. says:

    Oh, I think Crappy Baby should become Little Crappy.

    If you wanted to be more mundane, perhaps just Crappy One and Crappy Two would work.

  127. Dakota says:

    Oldest and Youngest. (Or Farkles and Kitty Glitter. Whatever)

  128. Kelsey says:

    I know change is hard, but I don’t think you should stick with Crappy Baby. Who knows how long you’ll be blogging, and can you imagine how embarrassing that would be for an older kid to be known as “Baby”? A similar thing actually happened to my sister; I’m the oldest, and the other two siblings are 5 and 8 years younger. They got lumped under the title “the little girls,” and when the middle one got to be about 7 or 8, booooy did she hate it. She would pitch a fit every time someone said it and insist that she wasn’t little.

    All that to say, good for you for changing his name before it becomes a sensitive issue! I agree with previous commenters that Crappy 1 and Crappy 2 sound cute. And if you ever decide that you’d like a Crappy 3, it’ll fit right in! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  129. Mistie says:

    I do like the “Crappy One and Crappy Two” but I am still going to add my first idea too. I was going to suggest “Oldest brother and Youngest brother”.

    I say take all the suggestions and choose for yourself, OR you could see what the boys like from the options?

  130. Dana Lewis says:

    well, if not farkles and glitter….then crappy one and two or crappy boy and crappy kiddle?

  131. Amy says:

    Crappy Deux!

  132. Julie says:

    What about something like “Crappy Boy” and “Crappy Dude”?

  133. Christy says:

    What about Crappy and their first initial? I don’t know what their names are, but my kids would be Crappy E, Crappy A, and Crappy J. (I’m kinda diggin’ “Crappy J”…)

    I like Crappy Boy and Little Crappy, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  134. Ashley S. says:

    I just *had* to vote for farkles and kitty glitter, hehehe! If those had not been there I would vote to keep it the same. Or perhaps call Crappy Baby, Crappy Brother and keep Crappy Boy the same ๐Ÿ™‚

  135. Karina says:

    Big crappy and little crappy

  136. Mimi says:

    Thing one, thing two?
    How about #1 son, #2 son
    Child unit1 and child unit 2?

    though I do like Kitty glitter.

  137. Tali says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid?

    Crappy Big and Crappy Little?

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother?

  138. MargieK says:

    This is a pet peeve of mine. You cannot have an “oldest” child unless there are three. Same for the “youngest” or any other “superlative” adjective (i.e., you can’t have a “tallest” unless you’re talking about 3 or more things). I see people doing it all the time, and I keep reading to see them mention a 3rd child (if they’re talking about their children).

    So you have an older boy and a younger boy. That’s what I voted for.

    Maybe you could have a 3rd kid, and if it’s a boy you’d have “oldest,” “middle,” and “youngest.”

    I had an older boy and a younger boy, but then my 3rd was a girl. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  139. Andrea says:

    Hmm…my first reaction is to keep the crappy boy and the crappy baby, but people who are new to your blog probably get confused by crappy baby not being a baby. Change is usually opposed, but also often for the best in the end. I don’t really love any of the options, but can’t come up with anything brilliant myself. So frustrating! Crappy firstborn and crappy secondborn?

  140. Erica says:

    I too like Crappy 1 and Crappy 2 the best!

  141. Joanna says:

    crappy boy and crappy (former) baby?

  142. Julie says:

    I voted for Crappy Boy One and Crappy Boy Two, but I like all the comments for Crappy One and Crappy Two. ๐Ÿ™‚

  143. Mona says:

    I call my boys Thing 1 and Thing 2 because they’re about as destructive as the things from the original Cat in the Hat book. (The TV show Things are so helpful. What’s with that?) So maybe Crappy Thing 1 and Crappy Thing 2? Then again, that might be some kind of copyright infringement on Dr. Seuss. So I’ll stick with Crappy Boy 1 and Crappy Boy 2 for my vote.

  144. Brian E says:

    Crappy (the) Elder & Crappy (the) Younger?
    but Crappy 1 & Crappy 2 would be great.

  145. Maria says:

    Aww I miss his diaper, LOL!!

  146. Becky says:

    “I fear change.” (Wayne’s World)

  147. Chris says:

    How about Big Crappy Boy and Little Crappy Boy? I thought of Crappy Toddler too but then in another year or so you’ll have to change it again!

  148. Melissa says:

    Crappy 1 and Crappy 2 because my dad always called me best daughter number 2 since I was second born. I always thought it was cute.

  149. Tabitha says:

    I kind of liked Crappy Curly!

  150. Lisa says:

    Forgive me if this suggestion was already given, but my first thought was Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid.

    (too busy chasing kids to read all of the comments! 200+ is a lot!)

  151. Sandra Nelsen says:

    I like crappy oldest and crappy youngest.

  152. Kim says:

    I think it would be confusing to future new people when they go through the archives if you suddenly change your labels. I think Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby still work just fine. ๐Ÿ™‚ The only reason I’d change it is if you had another kid.

  153. Melissa says:

    I agree with the above. I like Crappy One and Crappy two, as well:)

  154. Frances says:

    Someone commented that after reading all the comments the word “crappy” is starting to look a little odd. Actually after reading all the comments I’m starting to wonder about the word “crappy” in reference to your kids at all…though it’s never bothered me before, maybe it’s a repetition thing.

    What about simply Boy 1 and Boy 2? Boy the First, Boy the Second? Small Boy/Smaller Boy?

  155. Katja says:

    Didn’t get to read the comments today, unfortunately. They are often just as funny as your posts, but just writing a comment is taking all my ‘extra’ time for the day.
    Anyway, do what you want we will all stay with you and the rest of crappy family because we love you. (accidentally typed ‘live’ there which would almost be true too)
    For the record, I voted for oldest and youngest because he really isn’t a baby anymore…..

  156. Traci says:

    Are there more Crappy Baby’s in your future? I loved Crappy Baby. But I agree that 1 and 2 work well. Makes me think of James Bond a little too. 001 and 002?

  157. Karen B. says:

    I Didn’t look through all of these to see if someone already made the suggestion, but Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler?

  158. Skye says:

    I say – Crappy Boy and Other Crappy Boy!

  159. Chrissy says:

    I liked crappy boy and crappy pickle but it wasn’t in your poll so invited for crappy boy and crappy baby. Only cause I think it would be super tedious for you to write, and us to read, if you went for one of the longer ones. And crappy one and crappy two are just not personal enough for me. Nope. I like crappy boy and crappy pickle. ๐Ÿ™‚

  160. Frankie says:

    I like the names you’ve always used. Your younger son will always be the “baby” of the family. Maybe Crappy Big and Crappy Small? Crappilicious and Sir Crap-a-lot? Craptastic and Crapfabulous? Clearly I’m starting to derail. Whatever you choose your kids are still awesome.

  161. Christine says:

    I think both kids should be upgraded ๐Ÿ™‚ crappy kid and crappy boy… then they’re both upgraded !

  162. Katie D. says:

    I vote crappy “first initial” for both of them. Unless their names start with the same letter. Those would be never be outgrown.

  163. Amanda says:

    Crappy boy and crappy baby is just so classic. I think you should keep it. We know he’s not going to be a baby forever, but we love him as crappy baby all the same. Keep it for sure!

  164. Sarah says:

    It looks like Crappy Boy / Crappy Baby is winning by a landslide, but it’s not getting a majority. So far, most people actually want th change the name to an alternative that refers in some way to their age order; the votes are just getting split up between too many similar options. You might need to have a runoff between Crappy Boy / Crappy Baby and whichever new alternative gets the most votes ๐Ÿ™‚

  165. Minela says:

    crappy boy and crappy too ๐Ÿ™‚ but c1 and c2 is also cool ๐Ÿ˜€

  166. Johanna says:

    What about crappy kid and crappy toddler?

  167. JCCyC says:

    Other: Crappy Kid.

  168. Maggie says:

    I voted for Crappy Boy One & Two, but I think it should be with numbers…Crappy Boy #1 ๐Ÿ™‚

  169. Erika says:

    Turd 1 and Turd 2? Just joking. Crappy One and Two sound good…that is, until #3 rolls around! Hahaha.

  170. Tasha Spann says:

    What about “crappy kid”? This way it sounds older. Or maybe “crappy kiddo”?

  171. Bethany says:

    He may not be a baby, but he’ll always be *the* baby. Until you have another one, that is ๐Ÿ˜‰

  172. Rachel says:

    My concern with crappy boy and crappy baby, is that if you go with a third… We’ll all be left reading about Crappy Fetus.
    And I dunno… Just seems weird, especially when Crappy Fetus turns 3!

  173. Santana says:

    Don’t change their names! Your blog is perfect the way it is!

  174. Denise says:

    This has already been said, but I really really like Crappy Boy and Number Two. Has the potty reference without being over-the-top. And they’re the same number of syllables, so it has a nice ring. I would vote for it if I could!!!

  175. Laura says:

    Crappy Boy + Crappy Pickle!!!!!!!

  176. Jenn says:

    Keep it as Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby. They could be in their 30’s and I will still think of them that way. ๐Ÿ™‚

  177. Bethany says:

    I’m not a fan of change in general, but if you must, I like Farkles and Cat Glitter (now a real word in our house btw)!

  178. Erin says:

    I voted for two of the choices.. because I don’t like change.. crappy boy and crappy baby as my 1st, then crappy one and crappy two (or c1 and c2 as someone else wrote). ๐Ÿ™‚

  179. JulieVK says:

    It’s always kind of bugged me that you call your kids and husband “crappy”โ€ฆI get why, but I still voted for Farkles.

  180. julia says:

    Stay the course, its been a holler till now and by the numbers above it seems we don’t like change + he will ALWAYS be the baby, unless of course there’s a third in the works, then you can always repeat this process. I think the addition of the shorts instead of the diaper and curls makes it obvious he’s not a baby anymore, but nicknames stick for a long time, so blog nicknames should be the same. Best wishes to Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby!

  181. Amanda says:

    Crappy First born and Crappy Second born!

  182. Lauren says:

    Crappy Boy & Crappy Tot! ๐Ÿ™‚

  183. KellyP says:

    I also like Crappy One and Crappy Two, but was thinking Crappy Boy (insert letter here) and Crappy Boy (insert letter here) would be good too. Just use the first initial of each of their names. Like, I’d have Crappy Boy O and Crappy Boy C. But that only works if they have different first letters. And might look like you lost a few kids along the way if you don’t start with A and B….

  184. Lauren says:

    I totally voted for Farkles and Kitty Glitter!!! But then, I’m secretly 5 years old at heart.

  185. Dana says:

    Will you have a Crappy The Third? Might be best to future proof the name for the third crap?

  186. Michelle says:

    Crappy One & Crappy Two
    C1 & C2 as needed ๐Ÿ˜‰

  187. Marna says:

    How about Crappy One and Crappy, Too?

  188. jodi says:

    we still call our youngest the baby, hes 2 1/2, love how in the new look he still just wears undies, lol maybe he can be a boy 2 when he gets a great green dress\smock like crappy boy

    oh ya i do refer to them as thing 1 and thing 2 all the time. just not to their faces, it makes them mad

  189. Tam says:

    I like Crappy Older and Crappy Younger better than youngest and oldest. Or Crappy Big and Crappy Little.

  190. Lauren C says:

    What about The Dude and El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  191. Kira says:

    I’m pretty sure you’re just preparing us for the announcement of a new Crappy Baby!!! Am I right? Am I right????

  192. Casey says:

    Number Two is a good one!!! LOL

    You mentioned this in another post awhile back and I thought Younger Crappy Boy would be perfect!

  193. Julie says:

    Crappy Boy v1.0 and Crappy Boy v2.0

  194. Margaret says:

    I was thinking Crappy Big and Crappy Little.

  195. Mary says:

    Crappy boy & crappy dude? Crappy boy & crappy tot? crappy boy & crappy buddy (or bud)?

  196. Robyn says:

    What about Crappy B1 and Crappy B2? Like bananas in pyjamas?

  197. Kristen says:

    This reminds me of a pair of brothers I taught years ago. They were Korean and the older was Chan Myeung and the younger was Chan Woon. I asked their mother once what the significance was of two Chans. Her answer? Chan one and Chan two.

  198. Allie says:

    I like Crappy Boy & Crappy Baby still. Unless of course you have another baby. Hopefully it will be a girl. Then you can have Crappy Boy, Crappy Baby, and Crappy Girl. Even though Crappy Baby will be younger than Crappy Girl…. hmmm…. Maybe I should’ve chosen Farkles & Kitty Glitter…

  199. Jen says:

    Naw, he’ll always be your Crappy Baby. <3

  200. briana says:

    I have three kids and I call my oldest my big and the other two the littles… lol. My son gets called wee man a lot too ๐Ÿ™‚

  201. Leslie says:

    Do the boys have ideas?

  202. Rachel says:

    I’m gonna be my own person unless someone else suggested this first (I’m to lazy to read all the other comments), and go with Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid.

  203. stacey says:

    crappy 1 and crappy 2 is cute. how about crappy boy and crappy duex? or crappy one and crappy duex?

    he may not be #1 but he’s a special #2.


  204. Kris says:

    He’ll always be your baby. But if you insist on updating, make them like royals – Crappy The First and Crappy The Second (or some variation thereof). Bonus: easily abbreviated as CTF and CTS. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  205. lee says:


  206. HattieLoveBug says:

    Crappy Big and Crappy Little

  207. Karen L. says:

    Tweedledee and Tweedledum?

    Honestly, I would prefer non-crappy names. Remember, it is the drawings which are crappy, not the children. You could also label them by their colors e.g., Blue and Green (as they are usually drawn in those colors). This has worked well in our family. I have 3 sons and when I purchased them various things I always got them in “their” colors, Red, Green and Blue…which were originally linked to their “gem” names, Ruby, Emerald and Sapphire since children are such jewels.

    • Julie says:

      This reminds me of Mrs. Weasley.

      • Amy B says:

        I agree…I love this blog but I sort of cringe every time I see “crappy” before boy/baby…cause kids are anything but crappy! They are irreplaceable treasures (but you already know this ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
        I like B1 and B2

  208. jen says:

    How about ‘crappy brother’?

    Or you could advance him to ‘crappy tot’?

    Or call HIM ‘crappy boy’ and crappy boy becomes ‘crappy tween’

    I DO like Farkle though ๐Ÿ™‚

  209. Gabrielle says:

    First thing to pop into my head was “Crappy the elder” and “Crappy the younger.” Then one day they can write a historically significant first-person account of a volcanic eruption… but with a Crappy happy ending!

  210. Leah says:

    I was gonna vote for Crappy Pickle but you didn’t put that as an option ๐Ÿ™

  211. Colleen says:

    Keep the names the same. People already following you know who you are talking about (and hopefully smart enough to know they are growing into other stages.) No need to spell it out for them when the boys reach another age bracket. For newcomers, they will catch on and you could always address their current age from time to time in a story -Crappy Baby just turned 5! or Crappy Boy just got married! You get the gist. ๐Ÿ™‚

  212. Becky says:

    “Crappy Baby Boy”

  213. Jen says:

    I like Crappy One & Crappy Two. But then again, that kinda sounds like bathroom talk. So never mind.

  214. I was going to suggest Crappy Tweedle Dee and Crappy Tweedle Dum, but that’s a lot to type each time.

  215. Michelle says:

    keep him crappy baby… the baby of the family is always the baby no matter how old they get

  216. madi says:

    i think you should just stick with crappy boy and crappy baby (: or maybe crapper oldest and crappy youngest

  217. Heidi B says:

    My baby just turned 5 last week. We told him he’ll always be our baby. I’ll probably call him Baby when he’s 50 ๐Ÿ™‚

  218. Meg says:

    My girls are the Ace, the Deuce, and the baby boy is the Knave. I’d be honored if your boys were Crappy Ace and Crappy Deuce. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  219. Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother

  220. heather says:

    I’m sure you’ll never get to this comment so far down the list but I think you should keep crappy boy and go with curly poo or lil poo.

  221. Janine says:

    He will always be your baby… unless you have another…

    I think Crappy Boy should stay the same, and change Baby to Kid.

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid.

  222. Holly says:

    What about crappy boy and crappy toddler?

  223. Jocelyn says:

    Commenting for the first time just to say that I voted for kitty glitter but only because crappy pickle wasn’t an option.

  224. linda says:

    We use Primo and Secundo, so we’re not giving order or preference in words they know. Primo, Secundo. Two normal, ordinary, non-distinct names… that clearly identify them! :0)

  225. Rachel Blackett says:

    I really like the suggestions above of either Crappy boy and Crappy Kid OR Crappy boy and Crappy Jr if you were to change them, I do really love what they are at the moment though BUT I suppose they have to grow up at some stage ^_^

  226. sarah s says:

    Little crappy and the older can be big crappy or oldest crappy.

  227. Julie says:

    Big Crap and Little Crap???

    lmao way to hard right now

    A direct giggly reference to poop and a play on the oh so loving terms “Little Sh*ts”?

  228. jess says:

    My 5 year old wants his new name to be crappy glitter fart and he means that no way mean we.are just really into potty talk right now

  229. J DeLo says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Boy too!

  230. Cheryl says:

    I would have said keep them the same, but what happens if you ever have another baby? ๐Ÿ™‚

  231. Amanda says:

    They are more characters now than actual people, so their character names should stay. Plus, your baby will always be you baby, no matter how old he looks. Wait, are you pregnant and expecting another crappy baby??? That could be a problem. For the names. Not for you.

  232. Frammitz says:

    I also have two boys, and so far I’ve given them individual names, although I don’t feel settled on them (I’m new at this). I don’t want them growing up thinking one of them is secondary to the other one. I like the idea of coming up with new names.

  233. Shell says:

    I like Crappy Baby only because he’ll always be your baby… but if planning on having more than Crappy 1, 2, 3… is a fabulous option! Honestly, I just love how honest and hilarious you are!! Thanks for keeping it going.

  234. Jen says:

    Little Crappy and Big Crappy.

  235. Sara says:

    Crappy One and Crappy Two is just too funny not to use!

  236. Johanna says:

    I expect the stories will evolve as the boys age, so I recommend a name that references their birth order but doesn’t define an “age” (I vote for 1 & 2). This way if you ever do a flashback, the pictures themselves (diapers or hairstyle) will illustrate the age of the kid.

  237. Mary D says:

    I have called my two girls “Child A” (the older) and “Child B” (the younger, since they were pretty little. Oddly, they have always loved it, although I started it to amuse myself. (I’m my only and biggest fan). You are welcome to pilfer it. These names lend themselves well to a Crappy prefix.

  238. leia says:

    It is so funny about kids wanting to be older. My son just turned 3 and now he tells everyone he is 5. He is so tall that he gets away with it too. He insists on it. I voted for my choice too. Can’t wait to see the results.

  239. Rachel, SF says:

    I do like Crappy One and Crappy Two especially shortened to C1 and C2, but Im also partial to Crappy-O and Crappy-Y for oldest and youngest, and with Crappy-O he can, at least phoneticaly, pretend he’s Italian.

  240. Debs says:

    For now how about Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler.

    Then you can do this all over again in another 2 years, but then you could change their names to Crappy SmartAlec and Crappy CleverClogs
    (or whatever suits their personality at that time).

    I like the idea of their names evolving as they do – they’re kids who are growing and developing and this should be reflected in your blog.

  241. Jess says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Young’n.

  242. Marika says:

    Crappy the Elder and Crappy the Younger? Crappy the First and Crappy the Second? Or Farkles? I like Farkles…

  243. Jennifer says:

    I voted for crappy boy and crappy baby still because I hate change, LOL

  244. Deb says:

    How about Big Crappy and Li’l Crappy?

  245. Sandra says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother!

  246. Sherry Jones says:

    Why not do as the Romans did, and refer to him as Crappy Boy the Younger (or simply Crappy the Younger).

  247. Nichole says:

    Big Crappy and Little Crappy

    • Mrs. P says:

      I was going to say that! Crappy big and crappy little. Because the one will always be bigger (kid speak for older) and we know they’re both boys!

  248. Gina D. says:

    giggle…. You know, If you add One and Two to the names, you are just opening yourself up for toilet humor…. and for them to tease each other.

  249. Danae H says:

    What about Crappy Tot? ๐Ÿ™‚

  250. Alicia says:

    Crappy Baby and Crappy Boy works wonderfully. I mean he is your baby no matter how old he gets – unless you are planning on having another then well thing might need to change.

  251. I will third, fourth, or fifth the idea of #1 and #2. I don’t think a crappy blog should have it any other way.

    The only problem will be if you have another child…

    • Ooo! Just realized that if you use #1, you can make Star Trek TNG references – like:

      “#1, engage!”
      “After all, #1, weโ€™re only mortal.”
      “Don’t worry, #1, we’ll still have you to Betazed with plenty of time to spare.”

      Sadly, there is no #2 on the Enterprise…

  252. jamie says:

    Crappy first and crappy second leaves room for a crappy third.

    Just sayin’.

  253. Tracy says:

    I didn’t read any of the other comments. I never comment here. I never would have. But you asked about names. The whole “Crappy ______” has always bothered me a little. Because Crappy Boy sounds like a bad kid. Crappy Papa sounds like a bad dad. I’ve had to forcefully change my thinking about this… but it’s always bugged me. So I think pseudonyms would be good. Maybe some kind of nickname you actually use? If it were my kids it would be Mr. Sir and Mimsy Cake. Totally doesn’t have anything to do with their actual names, yet distinctive, memorable and usable. So for your kids… something like Cheeky and The Monkey. Or whatever.

    ANYWAY, you don’t care about this. It will be ignored. BUT YOU ASKED. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Em says:

      I agree with Tracy and others who have said similar things about the crappy titles. Maybe just reiterate that the drawings are crappy and choose new names for the kids without the crappy designation. A chance for the kids to choose? Someday they may be crushed by being called crappy. Or maybe they won’t!

  254. kayk says:

    I like Crappy Pickle myself :p

  255. KMcGuire says:

    Well, to be grammatically correct, Crappy Older and Crappy Younger (not -est). However, once you have a new Crappy Baby you’d have to change them again. :oD

  256. Lisa says:

    I like Big Crappy and Little Crappy

  257. Jasmine says:

    I’ve seen a few for “Crappy (1st initial)”–and presuming the boys don’t have names starting with the same letter, I think this would be a great option that they’d never outgrow, no matter their age, interest, or habits!
    (And I suppose if they both DID have the same first initial, you could capitalize Crappy Boy’s to distinguish the age!)

  258. Kim H says:

    Oh my. Crappy One and Crappy Two has me rolling. “Do you need to go One or number Two?” Um yes, that really works very well with your Crappy blog!

  259. Amber! Crappy 1 and Crappy 2 (or any variant thereof) sounds like something that happens in the bathroom!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    How about Crappy Brother? Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother. Done.

  260. Greta says:

    You always make my day. Thank you for making me laugh so hard. I love inviting my friends over so we can read your posts together and laugh and laugh and laugh. That might sound a little nerdy, but, it’s true, and we’re laughing at your stories, so… I think it’s pretty much awesome. ๐Ÿ˜‰ –THANK YOU–

  261. Julie c says:

    Crappy brother for sure!

  262. Amy says:

    Why no “Crappy Kid”? Thats my vote!

  263. Kristin Gail says:

    All I have to say is: Holy shit, Total Voters: 5,996!

  264. Alicia says:

    Crappy Baby Bro, Crappy Little Brother

  265. Kayti says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother

  266. Jules says:

    what about crappy one and crappy too?

  267. Proneeta says:

    Big Crap and Little Crap??

  268. Julie says:

    The artwork formally known as Crappy Baby. Ok not really.

  269. Holly says:

    No matter how old he gets Crappy Baby will ALWAYS be your baby.

  270. Elizabeth says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby, because no matter how big they/he gets, he’ll always be your baby. But, if you’re looking for more ideas, you could go with ‘Big Crappy and Little Crappy.

  271. Kris Smith says:

    He will always be your baby- stick with Boy & Baby. Besides, in comics no one ever ages or changes their clothes. Much like your purple mumu!

  272. Michelle says:

    Crappy toddler!

  273. Jennifer J says:

    I think you need to run this poll one or two more times. I didn’t vote above. I like Crappy Boy, and Crappy Brother or Kid. Unless you want to retreat a little from calling the kids Crappy, and then I would vote for that.

  274. Blobette says:

    My vote goes to Crappy Curly! Seriously, I love it.

  275. Missy says:

    little crap?

  276. Sevender says:

    Man, I liked Crappy Pickle! Was sad it wasn’t a voting option ๐Ÿ™

  277. jackie says:

    Number One and Number Two?

  278. Brooke says:

    Oh so difficult to chose! I wanted to vote for Farkles, but alas I did not. I like Crappy One and Crappy Two although I am also very partial to Crappy Curly. Hmmmm maybe I will start calling my curly headed boy this….

  279. Mercy says:

    Coffee, the last thing any kid needs.

  280. Rebecca Michelsen says:

    How about Crappy Elder and Crappy Younger? I voted for Crappy Oldest and Crappy Youngest, b/c that was closest, but I don’t actually like that b/c “oldest” seems to need a noun after it, but “elder” doesn’t. (But what do I know…)

  281. Em says:

    I voted for “no change” but only because there wasn’t an “other” option.

    I really think they should be Big Crappy Boy and Little Crappy Boy.

  282. Katherine says:

    FYI Amber —
    Right now, keeping it the same is winning in the poll. BUT, don’t be fooled–you’ve split the “switch” vote by having several options, including at least one that a lot of people wanted but wasn’t even there yet. Even though I feel resistant to change myself, don’t take the plurality vote as necessarily the winner. (But if that choice is over 50% then maybe you shouldn’t change the name.)

  283. Adam says:

    For some reason the tweedles come to mind. Possibly because our girls’ first initials are E and M so we have Tweedle E and Tweedle M. Maybe Crappy Tweedle One and Crappy Tweedle Two? Kind of long though… Someone else can take that and run with it if they want. ๐Ÿ™‚

  284. sharon says:

    Crappy Big Boy and Crappy Little Boy or Big Crappy and Little Crappy

  285. Emy says:

    Crappy Big and Crappy Little

  286. Jennifer says:

    I was going for keeping the same, but some day you’ll have three (maybe) and then have to change names again, so how about crappy boy and crappy brother… My daughter is 5, my son is 3, his nickname is “brother” and I just thought calling him crappy brother would still be fitting if/when you add another baby ๐Ÿ™‚

  287. Amber says:

    I vote Crappy First and Crappy Second

  288. Yessenia says:

    I’ll go with crappy boy I and crappy boy II. I would say leave one and two for Dr. Seuss. You gotta keep your own brand, ya know crappified.

  289. Grace says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby Bro.

  290. Alisa says:

    How about Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother? As long as I can keep following their adventures, call them anything you want!

  291. Morgan says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Little?

  292. Shellaven says:

    I voted for Crappy One and Crappy Two but as I read through the comments I saw a couple that really got to the heart of the matter. As much fun as it is to think of updating their names, you’ve created a strong and unique brand with Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby. If you’re like me, you’ll think of new nicknames every few months based on how and what they are doing. Go ahead, throw them into a post, but keep your brand intact. (ps. Sorry! I have a Crappy marketing bias…)

  293. Sanlie Sloot says:

    Crappy Boy stays Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby changes to Crappy Curly

  294. Jessica says:

    Just because they are older…does not mean baby is not still the baby. =) I vote to just keep it crappy boy and crappy baby because well…hell…I am about to turn 31…I have an 11 month old and my mom says I am still her baby. ha!

  295. SF momma says:

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! I vote for you to leave their names the same. I also vote to keep their old caricatures. I have fallen in love with these two characters (yes, I realize they are real humans, but they are unique in that they have also taken on storybook characters) and would hate for them to morph. To me, they are like the Simpson children who never age. And how hilarious to continue reading about their antics (ie graduation) but still see them in their baby and toddler body forms. From Thai mom to you, I love the concept of keeping them “babies” forever ๐Ÿ™‚

  296. Gwen says:

    I haven’t read all the comments but I was thinking along the royal lines when it occurred to me:

    Crappy Heir


    Crappy Spare

    Just like William and Harry, non? But of course if you plan on having another… there is the issue of the third name. But then I like someone else’s suggestion of

    Crappy Ooops!

  297. Laura Scott says:

    Crappy little boy and crappy big boy?

  298. Sonja says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Curly

  299. Josie says:

    I hate change.

  300. Devan says:

    If you change now, in one million years when someone reads your book then finds some blog archives with the DIFFERENT names, they may not associate them as being from the same author. (You know, cause people are probably gonna be idiots then). This is your roots, what made you “famous”, I’d stick with it…good question though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  301. Vaniah says:

    PS. Love the belly button on crappy baby ๐Ÿ™‚

  302. Kim says:

    Was the farkles option to check if we were concentrating?

  303. Alison says:

    Crappy boy and crappy toddler? Though you will need to change again in a year or so!

  304. Kookie says:

    Whatever about Crappy Boy & Crappy Junior ?

    • Kookie says:

      Oups sorry for the iPad auto correct, i meant “what” and not “whatever”…
      French ipads are not very cooperative when writing in english…

  305. Nae says:

    Crappy and Crappy Jnr
    Short Crappy and Mini Crappy
    Crappy Boy and Crappier Boy

    Have fun trying to decide what you like ๐Ÿ™‚

  306. Maria Sรถderlund says:

    Ask them?

  307. Karen says:

    Crappy Big and Crappy Small ๐Ÿ™‚

  308. Shannon says:

    A dear friend of mine is the youngest daughter of 13 children (!) to two Irish immigrants. Since she has 12 older sibilings she has always been the baby of the family. So much that her nick name is Bobs, which stands for Bobby (a bobby is another term for a baby in Ireland). Bobs is 33 years old and will forever be the baby of that family!

  309. Sophie says:

    I’m having a small sad because Crappy Pickle wasn’t an option in the poll :/

  310. Naomi says:

    I quite fancied Crappy Curly but I see that isn’t an option..ho hum ๐Ÿ™‚ Crappy One and Two it is, lol!

  311. Megan says:

    Crappy One and Crappy Other.
    I don’t like the idea of first and second, because that implies that one of them won, and the other didn’t. Crappy 2 sounds like poop.

  312. Sandra says:

    I voted for Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby, mainly because they are descriptive and 2-words (not 3). If Crappy Baby is totally over being a baby then Crappy Kid is short and sweet (ahem).

  313. Shannon says:

    I wondered if you would ever change it! I actually thought about that the last time I was reading your blog. I like the One and Two idea, but please call them Crappy BOY One and Crappy BOY Two, because calling anyone “Crappy One,” just seems mean. Lol!

  314. Kim Q says:

    I have no idea if anybody has already suggested this (because I do not have time to read through 97,000 comments, sorry) but I suggest:

    Crappy Boy (stays the same)
    Crappy Brother (gets a new handle)

  315. Amy says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Number Two. Then you don’t have to change one of them, and the other still keeps his crappy ties. And it still leaves you open for a new Crappy Baby some day! Hmmmm, could that be what’s really going on here? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  316. Angela H. says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler

  317. Jenn says:

    well. I see the cuteness of 1 and 2 with seuss reference, HOWEVER, “one” and “two” are just not personal labels. When you say boy and baby, then the mind creates a picture of a boy and a baby, so it’s kind of more personal and helps visualize and to me helps make it funnier. That said, I don’t have a great idea. Maybe Boy 1 and Boy 2, so at least there is something to help create a visual?

  318. Jill says:

    Sorry, but some names that you acquire in youth you never get rid of, thus I vote for Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby. My mother still calls my little brother “Buddy Blue” after the Rainbow Brite kid, myself, I am still called Jilly Bean, and my sister is called…well, she is called Kristen because she never was never a nickname kind of kid! ๐Ÿ™‚ Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby forever!!!

  319. Meaghan says:

    I like Crappy One and Crappy Two, I call my kiddos Thing One and Thing Two ๐Ÿ™‚

  320. Heidi says:

    This is tough!!!! No wonder you turned to the internet for help. I voted for Crappy One and Crappy Two but only because I thought if you ever have more kids (not knowing if that is even an option) then it would be nice to just add Crappy Three, Four, etc… to the mix of names. BUT, if you arent having more- Id say stick with what you got.

  321. Dana says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother (suggested previously) or Crappy Boy and Crappy Junior (or maybe Crappy Boy Jr.)…

  322. April says:

    My favorites of all the options I’ve seen suggested are leaving Crappy Boy as is, and changing the baby to either “Crappy Kid” or “Crappy Junior” (or Jr.). I slightly prefer the latter (junior).

    But out of your poll options, Crappy One and Crappy Two seem the best, so I voted for those. (Still prefer Crappy Junior most though.)

    • April says:

      Oh, I guess I like “Crappy Brother” better than “Crappy Kid,” though I still like “Crappy Junior” better than either.

    • April says:

      In any case, I most certainly vote AGAINST leaving the second as Crappy Baby. It’s going to sound ridiculous after a while, and you’ll always be dealing with comments about how he’s not really a baby anymore.

  323. Cindy says:

    I was going to vote Farkles and Kitty Glitter but no, I won’t do that to them. I was going to suggest Crappy Tot but then you will eventually have to rename him again. How about Crappy One and Crappy Two?

  324. Jackie says:

    Crappy boy 1
    Crappy boy 2

    I like the use of actual numbers instead of the words ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s easier on the eyes.

  325. Sam says:

    Am I the only one who saw this and thought, “aww, even cartoon babies have to grow up?!?” I know they do but it still made me a little sad.

  326. Mel says:

    I think Crappy Big and Crappy Little. Or Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid. I’m not a fan of the numbers I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

  327. Karen says:

    How about Crappy Boiby? (cross between boy and baby) because he’s still *Your* baby even though he’s not a baby anymore!

  328. Mascha Feldman says:

    crappy toddler and crappy kid…so what you can update it again later. besides one day u ll have to call them crappy teenagers and then crappy adults…

  329. Shannon Johannessen says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid. That way there’s only 50% change! Changing both names is too much for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  330. Katie says:

    We call ours big and little when we cant remember their names

  331. riann says:

    I like one and two, that’s what I call mine! But instead of crappy I call them trouble one and trouble two. Trouble one always wants to be trouble two since that is that the baby is called. ๐Ÿ™‚

  332. Heather Hogan says:

    Crappy Pickle is the most appealing to me.

  333. LC says:

    Keep it the same…. because crappy baby will always be your baby. I still call my puppies… puppies (even though they are 4 years old now).

  334. Shelli says:

    What’s the likelihood you’ll have another baby? If it’s high, then you don’t want to go with “oldest” and “youngest” because then Crappy Baby would need *another* new name at some point in the future.

  335. Janelle says:

    Big Crappy and Little Crappy…or Big Crap and Little Crap ๐Ÿ™‚

  336. Jo Claire says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Youngest. That’s my vote.

  337. Fenny says:

    If they were kids in an English prep school*, like Molesworth or Jennings (and you need to let them read the Nigel Molesworth books!) they would be Crappy Major and Crappy Minor, or Crappy 1 and Crappy 2 (as my Dad and his brother were at their public* school). I vote for Crappy Major and Crappy Minor.

    * Prep schools and public schools are entirely different in the UK to the US!

  338. Jenny says:

    They should be: Crappy THE First and Crappy THE Second

  339. Claire says:

    there should def be a crappy dude somewhere…

  340. Charity says:

    Ok, I haven’t read the 5 bazillion comments, but I really liked Crappy Pickle! Sad that wasn’t an option to vote, so I voted for Farkles and Kitty Glitter. But I’d never keep them apart that way, really.

  341. Gina says:

    I like Crappy Big and Crappy Little.

  342. Kelly says:

    I vote for Crappy DS1 and Crappy DS2.

    (DS = dear son)

  343. Jen says:

    Crappy baby will always be your baby ๐Ÿ˜€

  344. Lisa says:

    Crappy Boy & No.2

  345. Crappy Big Boy and Crappy Little Boy…I called my boys “The Boy and The Kid”.. they are in their 30’s still call them that especially when referring to them to relatives. Love you stuff.

  346. Mariya says:

    He will always be the baby – well that is unless you have another!

    But – I am jealous that your #2 kept their curls. Mine had adorable curls, then daddy took him for a haircut, and 1 buzz cut later they are gone and it looks like they shall never return );

  347. Jessica` says:

    He’ll always be your baby…Well unless you have another and then I vote Crappy middle.

  348. Janie says:

    Big Crappy and Lil Crappy!

    If you have another you can call it Littler Crappy. I’m an outlier in that I do not like 1 and 2 in any form. I realize they came in that order, but nobody likes to be number 2–least of all a second child.

  349. erinb says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Jr.

  350. Alicia says:

    If the vote wins to keep boy/baby you could still update his look. Just because he’s your baby doesn’t mean he has to look like one ๐Ÿ™‚

  351. Jill says:

    Yeah, what if you do Crappy Oldest and Youngest, and then you have another? You’ll be back in the same boat!

    I like Crappy One and Crappy Two, and also Big Crappy and Lil Crappy. Leaves room for growth. (Crappy Three, or Baby Crappy). ๐Ÿ™‚

  352. I voted for Crappy One and Crappy Two, and I’d like to add a caveat:

    Crappy One and Crappy “Too”?!

    Just a thought and punny. I love punny!

  353. Steph says:

    I’m 33 and will always be known as the baby. Embrace it crappy 2, no matter what they call you, you too will always be the baby — until your mom gets knocked up again…

  354. Jen says:

    Heir & Spare?

  355. Angie says:

    My “Baby” is 2 1/2 and I still call her Baby C.

  356. Michelle says:

    Crappy 2 sounds like you have major digestive issues…what about crappy boy and crappy toddler. Just as simplistic and to the point as before ๐Ÿ™‚

  357. Katie says:

    I fear change.

  358. Kia LaBracke says:

    Crappy the First and Crappy the Second?

  359. Michele says:

    I like crappy pickle!

  360. Tiffany says:

    As an ode to Dr. Seuss– Crappy Thing 1 and Crappy Thing 2.

  361. Betsy says:

    I think more people have voted in this poll than in our local school district elections.

  362. Jen May says:

    Crappy boy and his sidekick

  363. Jonalyn says:

    Why not stick with Crappy Boy and then change his brother to Crappy Toddler? Or is he too old now to be considered a toddler?

  364. Alli says:

    What about crappy boy & crappy kid?

    • Kendra says:

      Yes!!! That’s what I was thinking too!! Crappy Boy and Crappy Kid! ๐Ÿ™‚ big crap and little crap would be funny too!

  365. KipT says:

    He’ll always be the baby of the family. Keep calling him crappy baby – it’ll look funny on his 21st cake.

  366. CaseyK says:

    Big Crappy and
    Little Crappy?
    I bet they would LOVE those names, too! since Im sure theyre all about comparing poop like my girls are (ages 2 & 4)

    (and if you have another, you can call him/her Baby Crappy!)

  367. Lisa says:

    I can’t BELIEVE farkles and kitty glitter aren’t winning!

  368. Mommy says:

    CrappyBoy & Crappy Brother

    Sure hope a Lil Sis joins the mix!

  369. Jen says:

    First Crappy Boy and Second Crappy Boy

  370. morissa says:

    I liked Crappy Curly but you didn’t include it in the poll.
    If your Crappies are anything like my daughters you could do Crappy Boy and Crappy Shadow.

  371. Kristen says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler. But then Toddler woukd need to change again to Preschooler in a year or so…

  372. Adrienne says:

    What about Crappy Big and Crappy Small?

  373. Pamela says:

    I like what everyone else is saying, C1 and C2. But if you decide otherwise, it would be “Younger” and “Elder”, I do believe. Someone correct me if I’m wrong. I am pretty sure the “-est” ending is for more than two, and “OLDer/est” is for more than two as well. Elder is for the older one of two siblings. Pretty sure.

  374. Lana says:

    Perhaps they could decide what they’d like to be called. FOr example they could name themselves after super heroes they love or a favorite other thing.

    • Rose ASL says:

      Bad idea! They are at that age where they will insist on being named “Poop” and “Fart” or some crap like that. Lol.

      • Fenny says:

        Yes, but at least they chose it, so can’t complain in 20 years’ time when they are still known as “Poop” and “Fart”. It’s one of the things to mention at their weddings!

  375. H says:

    Crappy the 1st and crappy the 2nd

  376. Rachael says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Brother.

  377. Cameron says:

    I’m Norwegian (heritage), so I vote for Crappy the Elder and Crappy the Younger. HA!

  378. Amy b says:

    I can’t figure out how do get to the poll but I live crappy one and crappy 2 ah la Dr. Seuss. Love the new look too!

  379. Delia says:

    Crappy Big Boy & Crappy Little Boy

  380. Lady S says:

    He will always be the Baby ๐Ÿ˜‰

  381. CandyRae says:

    Crappy Big and Crappy Little ๐Ÿ™‚

  382. farkles says:

    Stick w/ Crappy boy & baby

    (or Toto Mendez).

  383. Angela says:

    I just read through everyone’s comments just too see if there was answer to the question…is there another crappy baby on the way?!?

    And I agree with asking me what they want to be called. It at least would give you some good material for your next post!

  384. Rachel G says:

    I want either Crappy Boy & Crappy Boy-ette or Crappy One & Crappy Two.
    If you had a Yiddish speaking grandmother in the family they could be Boy and Boychick.
    It has the word chick in it, but sounds way more manly when the Jewish grandmother says it.

  385. Sarah says:

    Crappy Big Crappy Little

    Simple not too many words and we know they r boys!

  386. Mandy B says:

    Does he have another nickname? Keep Crappy Boy and use another nickname you give the “baby”. Crappy Squirt for instance…but that sounds too much like real potty humor. Never mind. He might love it though. ๐Ÿ˜›

  387. Nessa says:

    I like Crappy Kid and Crappy Boy

  388. Jennifer Sawyer says:

    I’m not a big fan of change, so I am all for keeping them as Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby. ๐Ÿ™‚ Besides, they’ll always be our babies, right?

  389. how about crappy and crappier?

  390. carrie braverman says:

    crappy big bro and crappy little bro?

  391. Sara says:

    Big Crap and Little Crap? ๐Ÿ™‚ BTW, this blog is craptastic!

  392. Zoe says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler?

  393. Rose ASL says:

    I was going to suggest Crappy Boy and Crappy Bro. Since Crappy Boy was not always a brother, but Crappy Baby was. But frankly, I like Crappy One and Crappy Two.

    P.S. – Crappy Boy’s twin agrees with me.

  394. Shen-Li says:

    I kinda think that Crappy Baby still fits because he is the youngest and they say that the youngest will always be the baby in the family. I sometimes still call my son “baby” even though he’s long outgrown the name… I’m sure there will come a time when he’ll object to it, but for now… ๐Ÿ™‚

  395. Michal Anderson says:

    We call our 3 girls, Veinte, Grande, and Tall…but, we live in Seattle… And drink A LOT of coffee.

  396. HS says:

    They will always be Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby to me ๐Ÿ™‚

  397. kate l says:

    Sticking with the OG makes it familiar, but I do like 1 and 2.
    I also liked Crappy Curly… It made me giggle ๐Ÿ™‚

  398. Heather C says:

    I’ve been reading this blog since it was a baby and they’ll always be crappy boy and crappy baby to me, so I voted keep it the same, however as a mom of two not quite so little boys I constantly think about bringing in some more estrogen either biological or adopted. So, if you have another and it’s a boy he could be crappy new baby and a girl would be crappita or crappy girl.

  399. Trudy says:

    I think they should be #1 Crappy Boy and #2 Crappy Boy. Oldest Crappy Boy needs to be #1, of course.

    You are so funny! I loved your book and passed it on to my niece, who is F/T Mom to a 6 yr old & 4 yr old boys and a new 4 months old baby girl – and is renovating a 100+ yr old Victorian Farmhouse and helping her husband run a 300 acre cow farm… she cracked up all the way through! Thank you – she could; use the laughs…

  400. Alicia says:

    I think you should get CraPpy Baby’s and Crappy Boy’s input. At one point I was no longer allowed to call Baby Rye Rye that anymore and Ryan was requested. I must also get all posted pics approved through an internal review board.

  401. Kim Bentz says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy Tot. Sorta like Toddler but like a Tater Tot.

  402. Lisa says:

    I like Crappy Boy and Crappy Toddler. Although, then he’ll outgrow that too. So hard…maybe just keep the names as they are?

  403. Pam Snedeker says:

    I vote you add Crappy Girl Baby to the mix

  404. Jamie McMillan says:

    Crappy boy and crappy preschooler ๐Ÿ™‚

  405. Lauren says:

    Maybe ask the boys? I’m sure they already have something figured out. I vote for Crappy Curly, just because that is awesome. But for all blog purposes it would be okay if they stayed the same ๐Ÿ™‚

  406. stasi says:

    Crappy the Elder and Crappy the Younger. Has a classical/Greek philosopher ring to it. Or Game of Thrones perhaps.

  407. Jim says:

    Just plain “Crappy One” and “Crappy Two”. Nice clean ring to it.

  408. Minnie says:

    Crappy the 1st and crappy the 2nd? Or crappyI and crappyII for short… They would be kings. I voted for farkles and glitter on your poll tho- couldn’t help myself

  409. Shelley west says:

    I like CB1 and CB2. It has a Star Wars feel to it that all boys will like.

  410. Kelly S says:

    I think you should call him Crappy Boo Boo

  411. Kelsey says:

    Crappy boy and Scrappy – for Smaller Crappy. And because he is scrappy too.

  412. Lisa Bohn says:

    What about Crappy Big and Crappy Little?

  413. PeJu's Mum says:

    Crappy 1 & 2.

  414. Mel says:

    crappy one and crappy two; and C1 and C2 for short. Def like the bananas in pyjamas reference.

  415. Evelyn says:

    Crappy Boy and Crappy The Younger? (Like they used to in the 1800s or so)

  416. Jessica R says:

    How about Crappy Big and Crappy Little?

  417. Starla says:

    I can’t vote (must be closed), but I like Crappy One and Crappy Two as well. Although…I really did like Crappy Pickle….

  418. Tracy says:

    We call our 5 year old and 3 year old boys Thing 1 and Thing 2! Although a few times they have been referenced as ahole 1 and ahole 2, but of course they never hear that!

  419. Laura says:

    Definitely Crappy One and Crappy Two

  420. Melanie says:

    Definitely Crappy 1 and Crappy 2… Helps because you aren’t calling one a baby over the other just because of age you are just going by which one arrived first ๐Ÿ™‚

  421. Kaycee says:

    Crappy Toddler

  422. Tyra says:

    Crappy first and second (one and two sounds like bathroom business, not names ๐Ÿ˜‰

  423. Jennifer Scogin says:

    Big Crappy and Little Crappy

  424. Becky says:

    Originally voted for Crappy 1 and 2, then maybe thought Crappy Boy Sr and Crappy Boy Jr??

  425. Dan says:

    Crappy Toddler

  426. michelle says:

    I just want to point out that the first thing I thougth of when I read Crappy 1 and Crappy 2 – was what you do in the bathroom – did you take a 1 or a 2?!?!

  427. Tara says:

    This one and that one.

  428. Lana says:

    Admit it, kids actually NEVER grow up. Whether you want it or not.
    I say leave ’em boy names alone – Crappy Boy and Crappy baby 4ever it is!

  429. kristie says:

    I vote for crappy big and crappy little. Not a vote option but I liked it enough to actually take the time to vote;)

  430. Monica G. says:

    Crappy Boy I and Crappy Boy II – roman numerals really class it up a bit.

    I call mine tall son and small son~ they are now 26 and 24 years old.
