because she will refer to her children as

Lil man

And

Lil princess.

Surely it the only thing to do for my own sanity?

YANBU

but at least the DS isn't "my little prince" - yuck!

YANBU

Use of 'lil' boils my piss too.

I think it would be considered poor form to slap her every time she does so

You may well be being unreasonable but I totally agree with you. That is unbearable!

YY Poppy... 'Lil' Urgh... and 'leetle' just as cringey.

Barf...

Can I also add 'ickle' barf!!!

is there anything else that she does to irritate you, or just this?

MangoMonster Wed 05-Oct-11 21:27:24

My mil does this to my dp, she really likes the term " little soldier"... In fact I had a previous partner who's mum used little soldier too...must be me...

YANBU. I have to add to "lil" anyone who regularly and in public refers to their child as "gorgeous", in place of the child's actual name.

Why not suggest she calls one of them "the babby" - this works best for a spoilt indulged child of 5 years or older, and means the child can behave however he/she wishes as they are only a "babby"

You think that's bad? I have deleted people off facebook (I know) for uploading pictures with captions like "chillin in the park wit my sexi kids"

YABU. Your just jelous of her gawjus lil man and gawjus lil princess. <shudders>

cheese is right, parents of princesses know that its not just them that think their lil princess/little man is the most gorgeous and cutes little brat darling in the world because they are their parents, they know that actually we all agree and are wildely jealous. I so want a sulky precious spoil princess / prince! and don't at all see my own as the best child ever made!

I heard someone refer to their toddler as sexy man the other day, it made my flesh crawl! YANBU by the way I hate it too

Use of the word sexy is just ridiculous.
