What do you call your DC's when they are being silly?

As in, 'well if you spin round and round really fast you will get dizzy, you lemon.'
Or 'Yes, sliding off the sofa onto your head will mean you get stuck, dinkus'

DH pointed out that I call them these things so, as I am bored, I was wondering what other words people use.

I have called DD2 a weirdo before, most memorably when she lay down on the kitchen floor wiht her head on the door of the washing machine (while it was spinning) and started saying
AAAAaaaAAAaaaaAAAAaaaaAAAAgh and giggling madly.

Bobo head

nobby solano (story - i went to say KNOB but realised quickly that that was unacceptable blush so it turned into that)

idiot (in exceptional circumstances, not so much for silliness as genuinely unbelievable stupidity)

My MIL says Giddy Kipper, which I like.

I use dingbat, or for more emphasis, Dingbat wombat.

I also use Bonkers, to describe a particular type of exclusively boy-silliness that I bet other boy owners will recognize!

superfrenchie1 Tue 09-Dec-08 18:22:48

normally 'silly sausage' or sometimes 'you loon' or something. often on verge of something stronger when ds (5) is being particularly silly in the way that only 5yo boys can!

A few weeks ago DD (2.5) was drinking the bathwater out of her pouring cups (as per usual). DH said "Don't drink the bathwater you berk" (in a jocular way of course)

DD replied "I'm not a berk daddy, I'm a wallyburger. And you're a div!"

Regular exchange between dp and dcs
dp"You are a banana"
dc "No I'm not!"
dp "Then why are your yellow and bendy, then?

Cue hysterical mirth - every time!
