    hehehe, so cute and lovely. For me this slang is the most interesting one I’ve ever come across in this blog. I had a lot of boo boo(s) when I was a kid.There are still some signs of that hurting on my hand.
    By the way, Do we have plural form of this slang? Boo boos?!

    I’m sure I’ll still remember. It’s easy. In France we say: “Bo bo”
    Thanks Yvonne.
    By the way, it seems to me that you like kids. They might love your draws and stories.

    Bettina, Are you in France? Did you know I live in France too? I’m right outside of Paris. My children do love my pictures and they like to read the stories too. Sometimes they tell me what to draw if I can’t think of something. 🙂

    Hi Hadi, Yes, boo boos. Is correct for the plural. My youngest son gets tons of boo boos all over his legs and knees. He falls a lot. 🙁
