to hate the phrase "nudie rudie"?

Okay, this is utterly trivial. But here goes anyway.

If my MIL - who is lovely - ever encounters my DSs (who are 2 and 4) naked - running about after a bath, getting ready for bed, whatever - she always goes "Oooh, nudie rudie!" I've heard her say it about her DGDs too. She literally says it EVERY TIME she encounters an unclothed child.

I just hate it. I'm fairly relaxed about nakedness, and my DSs don't, yet, think that naked = rude. I'd like to preserve that for a wee bit longer. I can't seem to find a way to ask her not to say it to my DCs without sounding mean or disrespecful. So I'll just grumble on here...

I we sing "I can see a willy wonka, willy wonka, willy wonka". And call it being a nudie mc nudestrel. .

It's the willy-foo foo dance in our gaffe. Usually demonstrated by bum wiggling and howls of laughter.

I have impressed upon them that it is not an appropriate show for other users of the local swimming pool......

We say it in our house znd nit bothered about DD running round nekkid! grin however, my MIL has issues with nakedness and if she is with DD when she is naked she says 'oh you must put some clothes on, nice little girls don't run around with no clothes on...' hmm
But then I've never seen PILS in anything less that full clobber. I on the other hand spend half my life in my dressing gown (slob...)

Rudey Dudey is funny. It makes DS giggle.

I know this is an old thread, but I searched specifically for this as I am having the same problem! I find something really backwards about the saying 'rudie nudie' and my MIL uses it too. My son is 6 months old! What on earth is rude about his nudity?!?!? Some of the people who have responded here don't seem to have thought too deeply on just how messed up it actually is to say this to children. I'm with you OP!!!
