What do you call little boys as a term of endearment? I routinely call them “silly goose” when they are acting silly. Occasionally when they are both acting inane I will use the plural, “silly geese.”
RJ’s homework for the weekend was to read a book on baby animals. The book explained that a baby cow was a calf, a baby goat was a kid, etc. This brought up different names for animals and RJ asked why I call him and Tony “silly geese” when they are together. I tried to explain that one goose is just goose, and two or more are called geese.
As we were sitting in the couch with a large stuffed animal moose, so I asked RJ what you call more than one moose.
Without hesitation he responded, “Toose.”
