i was dropping my daughter off for daycare today (which happens to be at the OTHER grandparents house) and daddy and his gf came in shortly before i left. I was tell my daughter to say bye to mommy, and she proceded to look straight at daddys gf and say "bye mommy"
My daughter is almost 2 and this is not the only time i have caught this happening. A couple weeks ago i was with liz and we saw daddy and walked to where he was and when we left, he told her to say "bye to mom---nicole", he acted like it was a slip but im pretty sure they have her calling the gf mommy when liz is at his house...
Is this normal or typical OR is it nicoles way of trying to feel like the mommy even tho she isnt? They are pregnant right now and liz will be around her lil sibling as it calls nicole mommy, but that doesnt mean liz has to to right?
Does anyone else think nicole is telling my 2 year old to call her mommy too or am i just crazy?

I don't think there is a right and wrong answer on this. My kids do call both their stepdad and biodad "dad", and my SD calls both me and her mom "mom". They do know the difference, and are comfortable having two of each and I think it makes them feel very loved to have a mommy and a daddy at each home. If it did make a bioparent uncomfortable, I think it's also reasonable to suggest coming up with a special pet name instead of mommy. But I really am not threatened by this with my biokids calling their stepmom "mom". I'll always be their mom, and it doesn't detract from our relationship that they do so.
