If i had girls they'd be "the girls", if i had boys they'd be "the boys" - lovely!
As it is i've got one of each and seem to mainly refer to them as "the children" hmm
Anyone got anything better i can steal? smile

Mine are the madthings, they were the madboys but then I had dd and so they became the madthings smile

And I refer to them by number ie madthing1 or madthing2 or sometimes teenmadthing or toddlermadthing for the eldest and the youngest smile
