Terms of Endearment

"Sit down ma petite biche". My head did a quick turn around, did I hear what I thought I heard a mom call her young daughter. Ma petite chou, ma puce.... these are all cute terms of endearment that I hear adults call a small child. However, calling my child a "biche", I can't seem to bring myself to do that. Then to double check I looked up the french translation and lo and behold, realized my mind has been in the gutter, the proper translation is "doe". So go ahead and call your children "ma puce", "ma chou" or even "ma biche". And on that note, here is a photo of me and "mes petites biches"!

chou - cabbage
puce - flea
biche - doe
