what do you call your MIL?

To her face I mean.

I call my MIL "momma". I love that woman. She is so awesome. She is more of a mother to me than my real mother ever was. She is one of my best friends.

  • Carol. I don't yet feel right about calling her Mom. But we aren't super close, although they're ALWAYS around. I get a sense she doesn't like me... But yeah, I call her Carol.
