  • I think your sister is being childish and you should tell her to get over it.

  • I refer to my son as "this boy or this one" and I only have one son. lol, It is just a word nothing for her to get hurt about.

  • we have a son older and a daughter a yr. younger. we say the boy a LOT. I'll say "go check on your boy" or who's getting a bath first, maybe the boy etc etc etc. we dont use it to our son really.. but to one another.
