The Dilemma

Today I have been struck by a dilemma.......................Its not a great big one in the grand scheme of things but even so its still a dilemma to me.

In exactly 8 days The Whirlwind as he is now known will be turning 13, my problem is that he is no longer a "Whirlwind" and more of a..............................Well.....................How can I put this....................................A SLOTH.

There is no other way of describing him I'm afraid, he has gone from being a fast moving, impulsive, never sitting still, into a everything kind of kid to a calm, lazy docile, sit on his bottom, lay in bed until midday kind of Teenager. I am fully well aware that this comes with the territory of becoming a Teen but his blog name somehow just doesn't fit him any more.

I thought long and hard about calling him The Male Teen but as I already have A Female Teen it was all a bit of a mouthful and quite frankly a bit long to type each time I mentioned either of them.

With that in mind I have decided to rename them.....................Yes.................Them.....................They are both going to have brand new Blog Names.

Now you see my dilemma......................................What on earth do I call them (I could think of many at times but nothing I could put in print). I have come to the conclusion that seeing as you are the ones that have to endure read my rants and ramblings that it should be a joint decision on what I call them. Obviously I will have to consult the pair of them too (this happens when they are old enough to refuse to be blogged about).

I have come up with 3 names for each of them and am going to see which ones are the most liked. Underneath I have given a brief description of each Teen and their 3 suggested names. Comment below to cast your vote..............................................

The Female Teenager :- Funny, fashionista, beautiful (I'm biased), studying Drama A 'Level, desperate to be on the stage., opinionated, could replace Google one day, sensitive, caring and lastly super and I mean super organised.

Suggested Names :-    The Diva
                                 HRH
                                 Miss Priss
                              

The Male Teen Formally known as The Whirlwind :- Funny, not interested in fashion, flicks his hair like Justin Beiber, hates homework, obsessed with Xbox, has more money than any of us, knows hundreds of random facts about everything, has been with his "girlfriend" for 5 months, caring, emotional and lastly can sleep for England and any other country come to think of it.

Suggested Names :-    Sparky (on account of his love of electrics)
                                 Romeo
                                 Rip Van (as in Winkle)

So, there we go..................................Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated and met with huge thanks.

I will announce the new names next week ready for when I suddenly have 2....................Yes...........................2 Teenagers under one roof.............................Arghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!.....................More Gin may be needed.

Lots of Love
Me

  3. I have known your kids forever and I think HRH for M is perfect......She should of been snapped up now by Prince Harry. As for H I think Sparky is the best one, this is based on the time he rewired your toaster without you knowing and then putting it all back together again correctly....I can still see your face now. xxxxxx

  11. I think HRH and Sparky too, but Sparky may imply he is a little buzzy, which may not go with the sloth attitude of late...? x
