I do not speak Russian, however I am trying to write a few lines of convincing (romanized) dialog between two Russian characters. I'm searching for a diminutive or informal word an elderly woman might use to refer to a younger person or group of younger people (male or female).
E.g. if I lovingly call my grandma/the kind old lady next door 'Babushka' [ба́бушка], what are some loving/cute names she might use to call me, or me and a group of my siblings collectively?
Please include romanized pronunciation for my benefit :)
Edit: Thank you for the input and feedback on the question so far. Let me provide some more context to clarify my intent.
I'm designing a card guessing game which takes place in a Russian folklore / traditional family setting. Please forgive and/or correct any cultural mis-steps in the below, I'm only starting with my understanding of Russian culture :)
After a family dinner, a grandmother (say 70 years old) takes down her elaborate Matryoshka [матрёшка] stacking doll sets, and arranges them on the floor of the living room. The grandchildren and their friends (say 9-14 years old) gather around to play a family guessing game. Grandma has chosen one doll as her `favourite', and the children must guess which one it is.
One of the grandchildren points to some dolls and says "Babushka, does your favourite doll match any of these dolls?"
Babushka laughs and responds, "No ___________, my doll doesn't match any of those ones". The children then continue taking turns guessing to try and figure out which doll is Babushka's favourite.
I'm trying to fill in the blank in the above dialogue with an affectionate diminutive that could refer to any of the young grandchildren and/or their friends (male or female) in this loving, family context.
