  • Boy not as many responses here as the mommy question. My kids are older 14 and the twins are 11, all girls. They call their dad, dad in normal circumstances. If they are feeling cuddly or need help then its daddy (mostly the little ones), when they are being silly he is called "male parental figure" by the oldest or "oh fatherly one", and sometimes "goofy", because he is. We have fun in this house.

  • Well the older 2. They are 8 and 6. They call him dad or daddy, depending on the mood. My 3 yo, now that's another story. He is going through the first name phase. He calls DH Brandon and calls his grandmother Teresa. Unless he is mad at me or his brothers or he wants something, then he calls him Daddy. I am trying everything to get him to call him daddy all the time because it really bothers DH. I think it bothers him the most that he doesn't call me Becki. He calls me mommy.

  • My older three (8, 9, and 12) call my ex Dad. My 11 month old calls my dh DaDa (of course, right now that stands for lots of things - but he knows the difference between DaDa and Mama)
