I'm working on a piece for my parenting column. Does anyone know any words that go in the same category as booboo, owie, and ouchie?
Thanks! Appreciate any suggestions or leads.
By the way, I was amused to learn (after checking the HDAS) that booboo has also meant dollar and testicle, as in: "For thirty booboos, you can kick me in the booboos."
