The Squirrels

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

    1. before, but no blog you will not find among my esteemed pages. Testifying to the exotrradinary discussion that blogs are always niewartosciowym Internet junk, on which there is no reliable knowledge, or objectivity. I’m not talking now about a specific address here, but all is talking about blogs in the form of handbooks, diaries, and information services there is always a lot of unreliable knowledge and unverified information, which translates into my long-standing aversion to these sites. However, its unwillingness to revise its humility, a few days ago I searched the Internet resources in the search for specific knowledge. A little of the case visited a few blogs, because even though the subject matter often appears in the network, but this subject rather superficially presented. Kidy came across this blog, I was more than surprised. It turned out that the issue presented here is very extensive. There is no doubt that in terms of content is the best service of its kind in the Polish network. Not only that even scientific, popular, and service breaks are not able to match this portal.

Because these sites are thin on the ground in the Polish Internet. Why did I write all this? All through my character, I do not like making mistakes, but if is to admit them. Such is the case here. Of course, one swallow does not make (they say), but on the basis of this blog I’m willing to admit that this kind of sites on the Internet can be very valuable, kind and above all interesting.
