my 22 month old daughter just started calling me Mom indstead of Mama!

I don't like it lol. It makes me feel old. She started hearing me call my mother mom so then she started. How can I get her to still call me mama? She sounds so grown up when she says mom.

  • Oooh my son did that. I just loved his tiny little voice and how he would say Mommy. So when he would say Mom I would reply "Mommy" and he got the hint fast.

  • I loved it when my guys went through the phase of calling me by my name. We decided they did it because their dad didn't call me mom but by my name, so they did the same. All 3 of them did this. I found out that all my friend's kids did the same thing. It happens at about age 4. It was strange for that little guy to just blast out my name instead of mom!
