I need your silly baby/toddler nicknames/endearments! Especially if you're from another country! For instance, in France mothers often call their children "mon petit chou" which means "my little cabbage." In Ecuador, using "guagua" means baby, but even though it's still Spanish, the same word means "bus" in Puerto Rico! And of course, here in the South we have "puddin'" and "punkin'" and the like.
Get the gist? If so, bring 'em on! I need:
• The phrase in its original language
• How to pronounce it
• The country of origin
• What it means in English
• Any odd facts that go with it, like the bus thing.
