Froggie or Frogola explained

I just realized I've never explained why my site is named with 'Frog'isms. My nickname is 'Froggie'. It stems from when I was a tiny baby and my dad commented that I looked like a frog, when sleeping. You know how babies do, when sleeping on their tummies (oh no, I slept on my stomach! SIDS! Don't worry I'm still alive.) with their little legs sprawled out but bent at the knees. Well, the name stuck, and now I'm 'Froggie', but only to a select few who I will now name for you:

1.) My Daddy, who called me 'Froggie' ten times more than he ever said 'Renee'.
2.) My Mom, who prefers 'Na' or 'Nanee', but will use 'Froggie' in a pinch.
3.) My husband who caught the 'Froggie' disease from my dad when we were dating in college.
4.) My brother-in-law who calls EVERYONE he knows by a nickname. He's 'Hawkeye', go figure.

I've always liked nicknames far more than being called by my actual name, so on the web, I'll be 'Froggie' (or Frogola) too.

Cute! It's funny how nicknames are started.

I found your blog through a comment you left on Laurie's. I will come cack often!
