Today, I heard my daughter-in-law refer to her twin daughters, my precious twin grandbabies, as “the good one” and “the shit stain”. FML

I'll bet "the good one" becomes a crack whore and "the shit stain" becomes incredibly successful at whatever she pursues. Write back in 20 years to see if I've won.

sometimes kids can be assholes. you know this. you have to acknowledge that and let her deal with it with humor.

Wouldn’t be without precedent. Many years ago, a couple named their twin sons Winner and Loser. Winner ended up being a regular in prison; Loser became a police detective - and he preferred to be called Lou.

Yes, I knew that story! Worked out like "A Boy Named Sue."

I want in on this bet.

every parent I know of has weird and someway offensive names for their kids. it's a joke and made clear, and not generally one said TO the child once they can understand words. but yeah I bet one is an asshole, but they tend to grow out of it at some point.

Still not a good idea to refer to your child as "the shit stain". Even when kids can't talk, they understand the meaning behind the words, and they end up internalizing the insult. This poor Lisbeth Salander of a baby needs lots of love from her Grandma.
