My Three Children
This post was originally written here.
I struggled a lot with putting my kids’ names on sites like MySpace and Facebook, but I also struggled with coming up with the “perfect” nicknames for them. I can thank a friend of mine for these nicknames…
One night, I was talking to the above mentioned (she is not mentioned above in this post, but she is none other than the famous JenQ) friend. Her son and my son share the same first name. I guess she and her son had been talking about my son. He decided that my son’s name should be “Gmail” since that’s where his mom and I chat. (Please correct me if I’m wrong on how your boy named my boy :))
A few nights later, I was sharing some pictures with her. In the course of that conversation, she nicknamed the girls based on their pictures. The first picture, “Pouty” had her pouty face (which she is very good at making lol) and “Spike” had her hair standing straight up. That was in the days of Spike’s mohawk. A mohawk, in fact, that any rocker boy would be envious of! LOL
So, based on the two pics below, the girls’ nicknames are Spike & Pouty, the boy is Gmail. 🙂
Edited: We now have #4. We had a beautiful baby boy born on February 7, 2010. For internet purposes, thanks to his big sister, Pouty, we call him Samoo
