(assuming, of course, that they ever use insults.... dd didn't at that age but ds does).
Around here it is 'silly patch' to express mild dislike and 'poo poo patch' to express very great antipathy. Goodness knows where they get it from.

Poo face was my dd's favourite along with poo bum and poo breath. Poo anything really.

"Don't look at me with rabbit eyes"....hmm (He has a thing about rabbits)

"You're a bicket bocket."


I have been sent to the naughty step a few times too.

I wondered where he got it from until I had a flashback of myself driving blush

anything with poo works well.

And some terms of endearment that I use with them when they are 'fondly ribbing each other'

ds1 used to call me a bossy boiler (from Thomas Tank Engine)

ds3 currently enjoys telling me "Mummy a big man" as he doesn't seem to understand the difference between genders in adults....

Not a toddler but 5yo dd1's current favourite insult is 'Mr Harvey', as in "don't be a silly Mr Harvey" no idea where that came from. My friend's son used to call people a 'pom pom' and roll around laughing.

My 4 yr old has discovered the word bugger and uses it as often as possibe; even to the TA on his first day at school! I'm just ignoring him as much as possible but it's hard when he's shouting it to me in the supermarket!

When DD was little she would call us a "pineapple head" if displeased.

When mine were toddlers (now much more mature bigger) most of the insults revolved around bogies.

Or maybe we just had a lot of colds!

I think they were mainly poo-based here.

Favourites were:

PooPoo Head
Stinky pants

Oh, and now DS says "Oh Bum Cheeks!" when something goes wrong. Certainly not an expression he got from me.

Kathyis12feethighandbites Tue 10-Nov-09 14:33:48

I do love the really random ones.

ruddynorah Tue 10-Nov-09 14:36:01

peanut head
poo poo head
wee wee head


Herecomesthesciencebint Tue 10-Nov-09 14:46:54

ickle tickle bum bum

are just the last 2 days selection from DS2 who is 2.3

Kathyis12feethighandbites Tue 10-Nov-09 14:48:45

He sounds admirably creative, Herecomes.

Chickenshavenolips Tue 10-Nov-09 14:55:07

Bum head is still a firm favourite here, and my two are 9 and 6 grin

DS went through a short phase of shouting 'you're painting the house' when v cross.

We eventually realised this was a translation of 'you're a pain in the arse' shock

ds1 3.7 smelling of poo or wee is the only insults he seems to find it hilarious!!! hmm

DD (3.8) uses 'pomegranate head' or 'you've got a willy' (when insulting me!).
