  • I call my husband Daddy around the kids, and Papa around the grandbabies. And, he calls me mom or Grandma. We've been together so many years, we very rarely call each other by name. Nine times out of ten its dad or mom. Just habit, not creepy or anything, just habit.

  • I'll call my husband daddy because we have children together and it's in reference to our children/having something to do with them.  Or he'll tell me about fixing something at work and I'll say something like "Oh big daddys got it under control huh".  It's an endearment just like honey or sugar or sweetie.  At least in our house that's how it's used.  I've never called anyone else that.
