Most of us have heard children referred to as "kids". I once had a teacher tell me to stop that because "kids" are baby goats! Young'uns is another fairly common term. I have also heard "lil' shaver". BUT, have any of you ever heard children referred to as "suck eggs"? I remember my grandpa telling me that I was just a little suck egg when I was a little girl. I also remember him referring to other children the same way.
