No I wouldn't be offended at all

One of my cousins called her mum a "black stub" when she was about four, with great feeling. I think my aunt was too busy trying not to laugh to tell her off. To this day, none of us know what a black stub is. </not helpful>

Er? no..

My 3 year old calls me a 'silly nugget' which I think is very funny. She's annoyed at me and she expresses it in a harmless enough way.

although I suspect she's mispronouncing fucker blush

Was it said with great indignation, folded arms and a 'humph' to finish?!grin

Theycallmemellowjello Wed 29-Jul-15 20:58:12

Hee! No I wouldn't tell off, it's cute.

ArabellaRockerfella Wed 29-Jul-15 20:58:26

Ha ha, you wait 'til they start calling you a poo poo head! shock

It's more the way it's said. If he knew the word twat then he would be substituting bobble for twat. It's maybe a bit disrespectful.

Psycobabble Wed 29-Jul-15 20:59:04

Unless bobble has some alternative meaning that I don't know of

Then yes you are b u to tell them off confused

YWBVU to tell a wee 3 year old for that!

I'm adopting it as my new favourite phrase. grin

BitchPeas Wed 29-Jul-15 21:00:21

Sorry x post. So it was the tone/way he said it? What had happened leading up to it?

RuddyHellItsSoftCell Wed 29-Jul-15 21:00:56

Your 3 year old or someone else's?

I wouldn't mind dd saying it to me or her dad but I wouldn't be that happy about her saying it to another adult. Having said that I wouldn't be keen on said adult telling her off for it, that's my job.

Wolfiefan Wed 29-Jul-15 21:01:42

Mispronunciation of bollocks?

usualsuspect333 Wed 29-Jul-15 21:01:42

I would laugh.

KindergartenKop Wed 29-Jul-15 21:02:15

It's not said affectionately! More in anger/frustration that mummy isn't giving him what he wants or doing what he wants.

GallopingFoxley Wed 29-Jul-15 21:02:34

My 8 year old keeps calling me a 'worthless worm' and a 'mouldy old measle'

Yes he's been watching Horrid Henry angry

I just laugh

Elisheva Wed 29-Jul-15 21:03:57

Were you being a silly bobble?

KindergartenKop Wed 29-Jul-15 21:06:22

It's my 3 yr old. If I allow him to call me and dh a silly bobble then he will say it to everyone. He called a little girl it in the park today. I might teach him the word cunt or twat instead, wthat bu?

Oh just unclench and laugh it off. Talk about over thinking!
