Seriously? Bubs? seriously?

I can think of very few ways to describe a child that are less annoying than Bubs,AIBU?

YADNBU. Falls into the same camp as 'hubby' for me grin

Very horrible. My DD is chick or chicken. She loathes both. DH calls her Bobbins or Bobs which is virtually Bubs but an abbreviation because she is Bobbins.

I agree Hunny Bubs...

It's for use by the Lolling Huns only.
At least it isn't Bubz, be thankful for small mercies.

PerryCombover Mon 20-Jun-11 13:17:31

small mercies are too small

And Bubba.


When anyone refers to their baby as bubba it makes me think of that character in Forest Gump 'fried shrimp, broiled shrimp, shrimp with egg, shrimp with grits, shrimp with mo' shrimp'

Small Mercy is a good name for a baby though or bub

PerryCombover Mon 20-Jun-11 13:18:35

or a rose...small mercies would be a good name for a rose

Bubba is worse than Bubs, for sure.

My cousin went through a phase of calling her unborn daughter "bubba girl" on Facebook. Now it tends to be "little lady". Vom.

It's not that bad. I don't use it myself though at least not when anyone else is around.

During my first ever scan the sonographer referred to DD as bub. It really stuck in my mind, probably because I was a terrified youngster and it made the whole thing seem more normal.

culturemulcher Mon 20-Jun-11 13:59:56

Bubs and Bubba are Americanisms, aren't they? Maybe it's less annoying if you're American.

Hullygully Mon 20-Jun-11 14:00:33

My kiddies are my lil bubbas and my hubby is my hubby-mobile.

What is wrong with that?

Highlander Mon 20-Jun-11 14:00:41

it makes my skin crawl

PerryCombover Mon 20-Jun-11 14:00:58

maybe it is less annoying if you don't speak or read english

PerryCombover Mon 20-Jun-11 14:01:47

hubby hully gully

truly? madly? deeply?

controlpantsandgladrags Mon 20-Jun-11 14:02:43

A baby is a babby where I am (midlands) I catch myself saying it sometimes after so many years here blush

I think bubba is an americanism.
