Do you go by Mommy, Mom, Mama, or something else?

I think I'll go by either Mom or Mama when my daughter is old enough to talk. I never was one for Mommy.

  • My kids call me mom. The oldest if she is being silly will say "Oh motherly one" and the younger two only call me momma if the are sick or hurt.

    To anon above, your grandbabies can call you Ana but the parents have to support you. My dh is Puerto Rican, and my MIL made the comment that her older grandkids didn't call her Abulita, spanish for grandma. So when I got pregnant we decided to call her Abulita and it's actually easier because they know which grandma I'm talking about.
