Nicole Polizzi‘s children may start calling her “Snooki” like the rest of the world.

On Tuesday, the Jersey Shore alum, 29, shared a video of her 5-year-old son Lorenzo and 2-year-old daughter Giovanna repeating their mother’s famous nickname along with the caption, “THE DAY HAS COME.”

In the clip, the former MTV star, who starred on all six seasons of Jersey Shore, asked her oldest child what exactly a “Snooki” is, and he adorably answered: “I don’t know.”

Clearly the reality star is not a big fan of her children using the name as when her little boy said he did not know what a Snooki is, she replied: “Me either, eww!”

The mother of two recently reunited with her former costars Jenni “JWoww” FarleyMike “The Situation” SorrentinoSammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio for the E! special Reunion Road Trip: Return to the Jersey Shore, five years after fans said goodbye to the reality series following the season 6 finale in 2012.

During the brief reunion-centered docu-series, Snooki didn’t waste a minute putting her ex-roommate, “The Sitch,” through the paces. In fact, she told her daughter Giovanna even before the trip that she was being picked up by “this guy called ‘Mr. Situation.’ He took too many, um, candy snacks and got mean and cranky.”

And soon, Snooki will star in another Jersey Shore spinoff.

PEOPLE confirmed in August that she and Farley will be joining Mob Wives‘ Drita D’avanzo on the new VH1 production, Celebrity Shore. When the new series premieres, audiences will watch Snooki and JWoww head back to the beach with their reality star friends for another summer at the Jersey Shore.
