What goofy things do you find yourself saying to your kids, or silly nicknames?

"Is that kaka I smell, or did you just toot?" It's really bad when you call your dog things like "dooky-head" and worse; then you get rid of your dog and have a baby.... Yeah, must try not to use the same nicknames! My husband calls our son "pooky-pie", which is really funny because he's a very masculine ex-marine. I find myself calling him "Captain poopy-pants" or "stinky-butt". Hmm, hope he's not scarred for life!

  • I call him "My little Monkey" but only in private. He wanted to be called a money. In private because I once called him my little monkey in public and someone jumped all over my ass for being racist. I didn't even think about it. My son is black and I am not.

    Once, in public, I said to him (in front our our black friends), "You eat so many crackers your going to turn into one giant cracker if you keep eating all them like you do." Then as soon as I said it I was turning red and wanted to just DIE right then and there. He kept calling himself a cracker for the next week. I was mortified. Thankfully that one has gone and stayed gone....but I am very careful about our nicknames. So I just stick to Izzy Wizzy Boo and leave it at that.

  • Lol! I've called my son "Stinky butt", too. Along with, "munkchin", "mommy's monster", and "monkey".
    The other day I was on the phone, and I bet the person on the other end thought I was going insane. I kept telling my son over and over that "elephants don't belong in the printer."....He was trying to shove his elephant puzzle piece in there. And I couldn't get to him. LOL!

  • I've accidentally called my son my cats name. Which is sad because he's only 2 months old.
    My cat came and laid down by my son and I while we were watching a movie last night and I went to say "Jamie don't pull Skitzo's fur!" and it came out "Skitzo don't pull Jamie's fur!"

  • I call my son spagettie. It started out by me saying "Are you ready, Spagettie?" When we were about to do/go something/where. And it got shortened to now I just call him spagettie.
