what do you call ur mother in law?

i still feel nervous around my MIL but i don't mind talking to her. but when i find myself in a situation where i have to call her i open my mouth and even reach out my hand to tap her on the shoulder and i don't know what to call her. i tried calling her mom once and her face was like "huh???" lol

  • I call my MIL by her first name... And if the moment is right then I'll call her mom. Like if I'm tattling on my husband - then it's ''mom did you know your son did this'' lol! Or if it's a sentimental moment then it's mom... Now my husband refers to my mom as the - MOTHER OR THE B*T*H..... But that's an entirely different subject....
