Aunts and Uncles

Do you teach your children to call very close family friends "Aunt" and "Uncle" or do you think it should be reserved for family.

  • With one friend we call her aunt and uncle, with others we use Mr, Mrs, Miss, and still with others it is just their first name. It all depends on the person and what we call them. My DD even refers to my best friend and her hubby as "other Mommy and Daddy" (I think this is cute and so do they).
