  • They get confused at that age. My granddaughter calls me mommy, her aunts name and sometimes grandma... it all depends if she's been around alot of people.

  • My oldest used to call her grandfather daddy or mommy all the time when she was around that age. It was because she spent alot of time with him and would forget i wasn't there. what was worse is that because i worked so much (to feed her! lol) she'd wouldn't see much of me.. so she started calling me by my first name! lol I put an end to that Really quick! I don't look my age so people would eye me oddly when out with her and she'd call me by my first name.. thinking i stole her or something... lol don't worry about it. Just keep on reminding him what your name is.. and he'll get it.

  • no i don't have any gray hair, thank God, but he started calling me that when we went outta town with my dad and stepmom and she tried teaching him to call her grandma then all of a sudden he started calling me that.
